Profile Information

Tell us about yourself:
I live in a 1770 center chimney cape with most of the original features intact. I enjoy antiques and old historical structures.
Tell us about your old-house experiences and dreams:
I would like to share photos with others who live in, or have an interest in a 240 year old home. This incredible farm is the ultimate antique, but needs quite a bit of upkeep.
Currently painting interior of home using colors found in 200 year old capes.
More photos will be posted of the interior soon.
This home of my dreams has a lot to say, you just need to know where to look. Surprises around every corner.
