This old house

This old house...  Seems quite fitting for the state of the home when we first purchased it.  It's an old 1890 Victorian / Tudor house...  We were so enchanted by its merlons (the saw tooth effect) to the top of the house.  Structurally the house was very sound but it had a lot of cosmetic work needed.  Landscaping, trees, fencing?  Forget about it, it had none of the above!  Check out the before photos, before we started working  stripping it back to its original roots!
