Thanks so much for your friendship!

I'm not a realtor but I must say, "it's got lots of potential!"
Handsome photo!

A picture (and a house) full of promises.. i hope you'll show us the end of the work restauration!
(I like the ice falling down from the roof..)

I can just imagine how charming this place must be. Restoration is so time-consuming, devilish and costly, but the rewards of an old house just can't be found in a new one.

This house certainly is worth restoring. The time and work needed to keep up a frame, painted house is illustrated by the fact that my brother decided to do put up new siding and new windows on his two-story house himself to save money.

What was supposed to be a project to be done during his summer vacation became a project he did not complete until Christmas vacation -- and this was in northern Minnesota, not where you want to be doing outdoor work in December.

I expect the people working on this house do not want to be working outside in Vermont in the sinter.

Nice composition in this one. By the way--- Tuesday, January 5 is surgery d-day @MMC.

An oeil-de-boeuf being restored is always a nice sight.

This is an interesting old house. The photo catches it as it is in the processes of restoration which is more interesting than either a before or an after shot. The viewer becomes part of the transformation.

I like seeing "before" and "after" in one very nice shot!

It looks like a lovely old house with 'good bones'. I bet it will be a beauty when it's finished.

It looks like it will be beautiful again. I wonder if it was a church in another life? MB

I see a wonderful house: the works are going well, I guess...

It's great to see some of the architectural details preserved. I like those icicles on the side.

It will be gorgeous. Like MB, I wondered if it used to be a church? It's wonderful to see old houses becoming new again... I hope our neighbors say the same about ours, even though things are going very, very slowly since we do it all ourselves.
