    I like this! We should start a drinking game called “a left piano…” We’d be drunk in 10 minutes I think…

      An OHD Drinking Game sounds like an excellent idea! I feel like it’d probably have to include taking a shot/sip for each creepy doll spotted in a property too. 😛

        • I’d buy a mug, if you ever sell merchandise. Not a 12 ounce one, though.

            I need to get my butt in gear and get started on the ideas I’ve had for mugs, cups, shirts, postcards and the like. Thanks, I’ll try to have different sized options. 🙂

                This weekend, I’m going to make a design and order myself a shirt, see if the quality is there. So maybe in the next month, I’ll have something going like that.

                I have some (self taught) graphics design experience but it’s a time issue. Plus I’d like to test different company products myself, make sure they are worth it and not junk before “selling” it to others. I could use some time, if anyone has any to spare. lol

                  I’d certainly buy a T-Shirt and probably a shot glass or two. Back in the late 1980’s, a company called Architectural Originals sold old house themed items including T-Shirts. They featured an old house in white (on a navy blue shirt) with the words: “keep it original”. I could envision something similar for OHD with maybe a Victorian, an 18th century Colonial, a Prairie style house, and a Mid-Century Modern, as choices. Best to let a well established merchandising firm handle all of the orders (and stocking inventory or printing on demand) unless there’s lots of free time for packing and shipping. (not to mention keeping inventory and handling returns if needed) Since I’d need some coffee after one too many shot glasses full of liquid libation, having an OHD logo coffee mug would also be a great addition. The website address should appear on all merchandise, IMO so that newcomers could become aware of OHD. Done correctly, adding merchandising might prove to be a reliable source of revenue over time.

                    I need a tag line! I’ve had two or three before. First one, someone stole it from me and I got tired of people accusing me of stealing it from them…pfft. The second one people said I wasn’t wording it right (although the history of the English language says I was), eventually I got rid of that. Now I’m tag line..less.

                    I have a shirt that inspired me to use some of the old post card images along with Old House Dreams name and then plain old “Old House Dreams” or whatever. By the time I get around to designing and order it, the site will probably be dead. lol

                      On these proposed shirts (of which I shall buy one or more in every color offered), you must include on the back some OHD-isms. You know, the old house phrases coined only here! ????

                      Aaaaaand…(don’t freak out Kelly)…we should consider an OHD field trip sometime next year! We could all buy a shirt and wear them to the field trip so we recognize each other! ???? Was it Chris who had a great idea for a museum outing somewhere?

                      I’m kinda serious! How fun would that be?

                      Oh, that’s a good idea about OHD-isms!

                      I am working up to OHD field trips! I think they’d be fun!

    I would negotiate the “instant relatives” collage remain hung on that wall, along with the other forgotten goodies strewn about, and I’ll drink to the piano, Tommy. 🙂

    Seale is near the Georgia line. Nice year-round weather. As for pianos, I live in Alabama and have seen dozens left behind. If lucky, you can get fifty dollars for them in estate sales or at auction. Turn of the century pump organs bring about the same down here. I love the primitive feel of this house. Plenty of land is included for fantastic gardens, either the flower kind or the veggie kind, or why not both. Fruit trees would also produce a bountiful harvest. Some of my ancestors lived in Seale and Russell County. Nice people live there. It looks like old growth trees are all over the property. That central hallway is fantastic. I can envision Empire furniture lining it, or primitive cupboards and chests.

    So much potential here

  6. Sharon says: 98 comments

    That exterior is total “BEFORE” shot. Just imagine the “AFTER,” with painting and landscaping and placement of porch furnishings all behind you. And then open that front door and — WOW!

    Oh, and count me in on the left piana/spooky doll game. ?

  7. What pray tell is in the attic? Maybe the buggy for the creepy doll, or the sheet music for the piano,love the central hallway. I can wish for more pictures.

    The fact that it is rewired 2004 (if done right) is a big ticket expense off the list, I see so much potential in this and gotta love 6 fireplaces!!!!!

    This conforms to the “Southern Cottage” type of house with a center hall and an entry with transoms and sidelights that appeared in the Antebellum era. Must have been a very popular folk form of house based on how many have survived. Ornamentation varied over the years, as did the porches. Those from the 1890’s often had wrap-around porches while earlier versions were often just across the front. The mantels in this house are consistent with a 1902 date. Seems reasonably priced when you consider it comes with 4.85 acres.
