Sad Craigslist House Salvage

Posted on 8/8/12
Tracy sent me this Craigslist ad for a house that is going to be torn down and the owner is selling off the parts. I do not know the reason why it will be torn down all I know is that it's a shame that something so awesome will be lost. This one hurts to look at, knowing what's to be done to it.

The ad description, phone edited out (please do not call unless interested in buying all or part of the house): "I am selling the anitique woodwork and stain glass windows from an old house that is to be torn down. There are about 16 dorways with trim, 12 windows with trim, 3 bay-like window trim, 3 pocket doors, 8 swinging doors with hardware, curved stair railing, complete baseboards for 10+ rooms, stain glass windows. The pictures try to show the trim, I can show the house anytime or send more pictures. It is located just outside of Griswold, Ia. Call my cell no. 712--------1. I would like to be done by about mid Sept. I will take bids on any of the house parts and sell to the best offer. It will be burned there after."
