Check Out this Beauty

Tim and I were out for a drive the other day and discovered this old beauty somewhere between Osage and Mason City. If I had to I don't think I could find it again.

The exterior architectural details on this house made me drool!

Can you see the diamond pattern in the fish scales?

The exterior doors had different patterns in the panels.

Here are a few interior shots I got from some of the windows.

No formal stairway in this home.

Parlor/living room???

Assuming this is the dining room with the pass through to the kitchen.

The kitchen.

The outbuildings on the acreage.

What a beauty. It makes me so sad to see these places just fall into decay. You can see what they were like in their prime.

They sure don't build em like that anymore.

Hi Tim & Becky,

I have recently stumbled upon your blog. You have an absolutely amazing house and are doing an incredible job.

I particularly loved this post and have actaully found this place is for sale for $35,000.

The real estate listing is at http://www.century21.com/property/index.jsp?id=34926584&campaign=listhub&refcode=C21gbase

It would be so tempting, however as i live in Australia, its a bit far to commute.

All the best with your continuing endeavors.
