Oh yeah.....and in that area, who knows who you could get to work on the thing....I think the workers would almost have to live there while they were fixing it up. And the shipping. I mean the whole COUNTY only has about 2,000 people. And the property has been for sale for almost 2 years!!
Just those old family ties...Daddy was so full stories of various ancestors and their doings. I was so young, though....I have no idea who was who and how they were related. My sister is older and is keeper of the family genealogy
I wouldn't know anybody or anything.
And we're quite settled here (in Colorado for almost 35 years now) and have needs they couldn't meet.
It is a pretty house though, isn't it? Love the woodwork and trim inside---in the more presentable areas.
But did you see that thing that looks like it might be a bathroom (apparently the only one in the house, mind you)? My dad grew up with an outhouse. I remember the house we used to visit (similar age, down the road) had a sort of bathroom tacked onto an outer wall that was referred to as new (back in the 1960's). So who knows when the one in the picture was added---septic tank, I'm sure, and in that rocky soil. UGH...
And that bedroom with the weird walls and strangish ceiling. The paneled exercise room. Not quite built to the same standard. Those may be add-ons too.
About being built right on the ground though; I can see latticework on the left of the porch front side of house, so at least part of it might be above ground. Probably built on solid rock too, if I remember how scruffy the farm fields were around. LOL All that exterior wood to keep painted.
I remember the old store with holes in the floor, and seeing the ground a few feet below when I looked through the holes. At that price, it's probably still original floors even now.
Looks like a money hole for sure.
