Hello! New here
Hi, I've been lurking off and on, but thought it's time to join in on the fun here. We bought a 1905 farmhouse in NE Oklahoma a little over a year ago, and have been very slowly fixing it up whenever we can get up there, about ever other weekend.
Anyway, I have a couple of questions, not so much about our house, (although, there are plenty of questions about our house for another time and post) but more, etiquette questions. The other day I was on my way somewhere and saw a house that looked similar to the one we have, but looks like it's completely restored. It's so cute! I took some pictures of it, but was very tempted to knock on their door and ask for a tour to see what they've done, and to see what's different about their house from ours. Has anyone here done something like that - just knocked on someone's door and asked about their house and restoration job and even asked for a tour? Secondly, I thought about posting a picture of that house so y'all could compare them, but wasn't sure if it's proper to do so. I don't feel right posting a picture of someone's house without their permission. What's the etiquette for that?
p.s. I've read some of the thread about vinyl siding, and if you'll note, the above example shows how NOT to do vinyl siding. I can't wait to get rid of that, but there's so much more to do first.
