Good framing here Carolyn. Typically these New England shoreline homes are huge and rambling and I would have a hard time not including all of it in the photo but as I sit and admire what you've done here I must agree the framing is just perfect. This Floridian, once a Rhode Islander has only to look onto this scene and become home sick. I just love it! #6589881
