Old Houses

For as long as I can remember my dad has had a subscription to the magazine This Old House. Home improvement is definitely not my forte; my very favorite section is the last page. Each magazine showcases an old house that needs to be 'saved'. Usually the houses are cheap (sometimes as low as $1) and need to be moved to a new location. Aside from the fascination with the logistics required to move a house...the histories of the homes is always interesting.

I do like new houses too. Here is my favorite from the same magazine:

While I was traveling over Thanksgiving I saw a sale advertisement for a gorgeous old house built in 1890. I wish I was in the market for buying a house...I didn't get a chance to stop by, but I plan to do so in the next few weeks.

  1. I like old houses, too. I would love to have one someday, although I'm not sure I want to take on the work involved with old homes. It would be a lot of fun to trace the genealogy of a house!
