Re: Opinions Needed, Please ...

You could easily incorporate Queen Anne features in a "farmstyle" exterior, I think. It could be pretty restrained on the outside and fancy schmancy on the inside. Around here, you see a lot of Georgian looking cream city brick houses out in the country. They're cool in their plainness. Never have g...

Re: Opinions Needed, Please ...

What "era" are you going for? I think that ceiling heights went lower as time wore on...... Our 1904 ceilings are 9' on the first floor and 8' on the second, , though I'm sure many of that era were still higher. We have (original) picture moulding at the ceiling rather than crown moulding.

Re: Any crazy cat people out there? My cat story

How funny to run across this thread right now.............. As I type this, I'm looking at a black cat who walked into our house this afternoon!

Re: Saved this from landfill...now what?

The more I look at this, the more I think it would be beautiful in our dining room. It matches the columns in our house and the color of the oak looks spot on. Seriously, if you're thinking of adopting it out, we would love it and pet it and feed it. Please e-mail at goosedance at wi.rr.com. I'll sh...

Re: How do you decide the name and age of your house?

I always liked the bronze plaque that said,"In 1890 nothing happened on this spot!" :D Don We have that plaque on our front porch. LOL Our house was named the "Samuel Breese House" when our neighborhood was put on the National Register back in the 90's. The bad news was that they attributed the hou...
