Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe June 05, 2010

Nicely done. Have you seen this exact same house in Monroe, GA? I think it's an office of some kind. It's unusual to see the exact same house from that era duplicated elsewhere. If someone doesn't fix this one up before long, the whole rear section will be lost. Good job. #8668884

Linda- I loved the first one and the way you let us look in the open door and was I thrilled to see that you have taken us inside to see more of the beauty that still remains.
