    I love the Jacksonville, FL house! Couldn’t ever afford it, but love it. So light & bright, with great views, too. I’d even keep the present wall paint colors & wallpapers.

    Is there any chance, experts, that the Benton Harbor, MI house’s woodwork was originally painted black? It certainly has some patina to it.

    The Texas home is the one for me, so intriguing!

      I also wondered about the woodwork in the MI house. I guess either the lighting was really bad, or else it really was painted black… (Cue the Stones’ Paint It Black?)

    What a great assortment today. All of them offering something special. Sigh. I love the Milwaukee house but it’s so close to its neighbors. I’m so spoiled living in a semi-rural town.

    I can’t believe the price on the Milwaukee house! I wonder why it’s so cheap? The neighborhood looks like it’s okay.

    This house belongs to a former employee of mine – a gifted restoration carpenter and a perfectionist.
    I have been in it a number of times. It is in a good location in central Maine, overlooking the Kennebec River (out of the flood plain). It is the earliest house in the area – probably about 1785. I know that every bit of work Mark did was of the highest quality, but there is much work left to do.

    I love the CT house! Why are there no interior photos of the ME home? The FL view WOW.
