    Now all craftsman homes make me think of The Flash. Is this Barry Allen’s house? 🙂

    Another Butler MO home this month on OHD and another bargain. I’ve noticed via OHD that the nicer older homes are often in small towns, where these homes did fall victim to rental owners. Rental property often is just painted over and patched up so much that you almost have to do a rehab on them. On this home, I’m guessing that it has been in a family for say 2 generations and is simply and lovingly worn. I’d do is sand and seal the wood floors, clean up the faded trim and stairs, and redo the bathrooms. That 3 piece pediment casing is a charmer that I love but it is huge time eater to produce (I’m having a hard time making them for the home I’m currently doing.) Nice house for a young buyer and only $49/sq.

    This one has a lot of great features.. all that wonderful wood and built-ins! I’d definitely have to “backdate” the kitchen and bathroom[s] though. The updated ones just don’t do it for me.

      Love that phrase Saphhy! Backdating, someone (John/Ross) should go with Kelly to start a tv series to counter all those renovation horrors, called “Backdate: putting the love back into your old house” – we could change the nation! who’s up for it??

        I’m so there, lbbjr! It seriously makes me sad when i see people update these old houses. Updating is fine as far as plumbing and electrical and that sort of thing goes, but when they update rooms [it’s almost always the kitchen and bathroom[s] that get desecrated] and put things in them that do not belong there, it makes me ill.

        Count me in lbbjr! We’d have a lot of “unteaching” to do. It’s so revolting to see these HGTV makeover shows where the new owners what “historic character”, then they rip every historic element out of the house and – or paint it white, then tear the plaster off a bearing wall (that was never meant to be uncovered) to expose old brick…then call it a restoration. If you want new and modern…buy new and modern – don’t destroy a beautiful old home.

          I’m so glad to have found this site. Where people actually appreciate the beauty of old things, and don’t try to change them to fit in with more modern architecture or ideals. To me, it’s the same thing as sewing Day-Glo patches all over a gorgeous Victorian dress. It just doesn’t go with it, and there should be laws against doing it!

    What stunningly beautiful woodwork – both the detail and the fact that the owners had the good taste to keep it stained only – at least on the first floor. And they did not paint the stone fireplace surround – kudos to the owners! I love the combination window/built-ins – and those nail heads on the stairs! What charm and class!

    i love the fact that the built-in sideboard in dining room does not take-up floor space.
