If I had a million dollars...............I've spent two DAYS looking at all the pictures. My house has none of the pretties in this house. In fact it had no pretties at all. Working farm houses were pretty low on the pretty list. The money went where it was needed for the farm to be profitable to support the family. I doubt I could afford the electricity bill for this house but oh, would I ever love to live there!

I LOVE this site. I can't recall how I found it, but I have shared it with all the old house lovers I know. I have spent hours looking at it!

I posted on old house forum about this house and tonight there was discussion http://www.myoldhouseonline.com/profiles/blogs/real-estate-agent-who-does-not
I emailed Craig Schaible
Were you able to keep your house?
No we lost the house.
