I love this one too, Clif. The south seems to be an inexhaustible source for great scenes full of a wonderful mood.

Nice scene Cliff, the uneven clapboard adds real interst to the structures, the hill in the backgound to the right of the structure is Louisiana on the other side of the Mississippi River.
There are areas in Vicksburg that look like that today, (Vicksburg is only about 45 mins away from me), unfortunately they are not areas of town I have felt comfortable driving around slowly while leaning out of the window taking photos with an expensive camera .

Why you should check references before hiring a contractor:

Me thinks the contractor was also the customer.

This would make an interesting model;



Probably easy starting with a "sierra west" or similar small building board by board kit.

Yes, very interesting leaner!

Why start with a kit? It would be fairly easy to scratchbuild, just need a bunch of stripwood and you're halfway there!

Hi Clif, yes this is a great structure with character! I like all the advertising on it, 666 this must be for a devil of a cold.

Chuck, I tried to look at this one, but all I got was a come-on from Yahoo to sign up for their service. I haven't had that problem when looking at the other Flickr links you've provided.

I clicked on the first one here and it worked, but who knows, marketing guys can be tricky!

Great building, Chuck. You've got a sixth sense to dig these great places out.
