It took a while, but I finally got the exterior of my 1840 farm house redone, and had a new garage built. More photos are at http://usher51-myoldhouse.blogspot.com/
Complete Interior do-over is next.
The new garage fits well, too.
When was that house built? I'm guessing 1825. Looking good!
My house is in one of the western suburbs of Detrioit. It was built in 1840, owned by 4 families before me, one a Civil War veteran. While the renovation was going on, I met a woman who was born in the house in 1916, grew up and was married in it. She's the second youngest of 11 children.
Wow, that's interesting, lots of history there! Most people don't know much about the history of the former people who lived in their homes.
What a cool and nice house...
Gorgeous job! I love that red color--it's perfect for your farmhouse. Good luck on your remodel; I know what a job they can be!
