Yeah ... I love scary old houses. I figured we could get creepy this month. I've always wanted to buy a house like that and refurb it.

Ditto on that, but I am afraid of a Money Pit sequel.

I'd love to see what the history of an old house like that was, better if you could find remnants of the previous owners somewhere.

My mom bought an old bungalow that was built back in the 1920's or a bit earlier - still had the stained glass windows in the frontroom which were dead cool. When we took down the wallpaper in the frontroom and livingroom, we found boarder impressions in the plaster - somewhere back in the 20's or 30's when it was fashionable, someone had squares of wallpaper bordered by wood trim in those rooms - it probably looked really nice, providing it wasn't red velvet, which is always possible.

I think I'm in, if I can fit in some time for the challenge. I'll definitely stop by to read everyone's though, if I can't get in a story.

Merry,

Me too ... I'm always interested in the history of houses like this. I'm always picturing Ms. Havisham, and I'm kind of delighted when I run across those little bits of construction or architecture that unwittingly tell a story. I own a house now that was built in 1958. I feel like I know the owner's previous personalities because I'm always stumbling across their work as I'm working on the house.

My wv is premoil. So I guess that's the first week of a Jewish baby's life, right?
