this house is beautiful and intriguing to me. i love it`s sagging eyes, it`s boarded over door, and the paint that has faded and chipped and refused to be any distinguishable color. i think i love this house for it`s defiance. it`s rebellion. it stands proud and refuses to believe that it`s anything other than strong and beautiful. i love this house. we found it a couple of years ago, without realizing it had a twin. but yesterday as we drove further up the road....only about half a mile....we found the same house, that had recently been restored. certainly brought back to it`s original beauty. the same slight curve on the front windows. the deep box around the front door. with wonderful detailed moulding. the same angle to the peak of the front dormer. all of it distinct. and identical. were these houses built together by two family members? i love this little discovery. although my favorite is the faded one with hay in the front yard, this certainly celebrates new beginnings.
