I brake for old Graveyards

I had a member ship in the Association for Gravestone Studies for years. So I have a special interest in these things. The house and the family plot! Oh how I envy you!. I told my husband if we found a house with a cemetary I would have been proud to maintain it for the former owners, but we didn't....

My 1880 Tiny Folk Victorian

When it was noted I was a NewBee I was asked to post a picture of my house. This was a life-long dream come true....I was unhappily stuck in a depressed city, in a California style Slab foundation, cookie cutter house, vintage 1961 ranch for 37 years.

Thanks for the Welcome

Thank you for the greeting, I have noticed many kind words, and help extended to the newcomers, and it is well appreciated. Compared to most owners on this site, my house (though I love it to pieces) might not even compare as unique and/or interesting enough. It is a tiny (1869sqft) 1880, Folk Victo...

I got caught in the same web....

First post! I love this site! But to remark to your plumbing problem I bought a house with the same problem. I found out after I owned the house several months, PO did the plumbing, and didn't pull a permit on anything he did with the remodel. He was a carpenter by trade but not any kind of a plumbe...
