And this place is crawling with details. Let's start at the top and work our way down shall we? River rock and shells from the nearby river adorn the front of the house. The small windows with the divided lights are the attic windows. Notice the facia board is carved and painted.
Other gables are shingled. If you look closely there are two rows of odd shaped shingles in the middle. I never noticed that until just now. When it comes time to paint I think those will need to be a contrasting color.
The keyhole window... it opens. Seriously. Very, very cool. The divided lights are stained glass. If anyone knows what those metal rods are sticking out, please let me know. It is a mystery to me.
Just below the window the front porch takes center stage. This photo shows the only two missing pieces of the fretwork. The missing ball is in the basement, so really only one tiny piece needs to be remade, everything else is still here.
I think this side is even nicer than the front.
But this little porch just off the dining room might be my favorite. I see a wicker chair and a fern in that little round part.
I've lived here for almost a month and I just noticed that this porch railing is completely different...
than the front porch railing. I discover something new every day.
But out of all of it. This field stone foundation is my very most favorite part of the house. It's a shame we don't build them like this anymore.
