An Old Chippy Paint Victorian Farmhouse

Most may look upon this building and see a derelict teardown. I see charm and potential.

You’d have to win the lottery to afford to restore this home with its gorgeous mature catalpa tree. 
It's beyond a mortgage and insurance.    See how the left exterior wall torques?

But it would be worth it because of the original detail.

It moves me the way the Sistine Ceiling moves me.

I’d leave the blistering paint.
These pictures are from a Flickr group that takes
very inspirational photos of hauntingly beautiful Victorian architecture.
They leave me breathless.

Until next time, stay shabby!
