Lisa, I know EXACTLY what you mean! That isn't exactly the style I'm looking for (haven't made up my mind exactly what that is, but I'll know it when I see it), and if someone ever posts one that is THE one, I would consider driving across the country to get it. I just don't see much good stuff advertised in Southeast Texas. I once saw an Estate Stove advertised in Houston, about 1-1/2 hour away, but it was 60" wide. I want 40", but could squeeze in 48". No way to get a 60" one in without taking out a cabinet. It was in pristine working condition, but it was several thousand dollars. Too big and too much $$. The "look" was perfect though. If cheaper (a LOT cheaper), I might have considered taking out that cabinet to make it fit.

Too bad the spam got so bad. Some of us have been spending time at the new community for folks with a love of old houses at wavyglass.org

This is a high priority if you want any of these things, he is going to move on the demo soon. We were out there today to pick up some rollers and tracks from the barn. Barn is rough, house still has the clapboards on it, as well as half round gutters and some interesting old windows, nice interior doors, some trim and a nice front door.
