    we are figuring its about 100 yrs old. i havent gottne off my lazy ass to get to the library to see the actual date.
    it used to have this huge wrap around porch in the front and a carriage house in the back where the servants slept.

    The stained glass looks to be more in the style of the Craftsman era - and the other decore seems to be a generation or so earlier. But I am not an expert by any means.

    both the bathrooms are updated.
    jsut came back from the county assesors office and they said that they didnt have a construction date on it, so it means late 1890's. so up to 114 years old.
    i can vouche for that. not a straight line in the entire place...lol
    kind hard to make it look straight when its crooked in the first place... :eek:
    but room wise it was a 13 room house plus carriage/ servants quarters. now its 12 rooms and a garage. note that i said rooms not bedrooms. there were 7 bedrooms. but i took the liberty of combining two of the bedrooms to make me a larger one...lol
    just one more on the second story to redo. and im debating whether or not to redo all of it or skim coat the walls to cover blemishes or not. it would be simplier.
