    Wow, paint job is stellar–I wouldn’t change a thing. A very stately yet homey house. Curious about the brick repair on the exterior side though.

      Do you think that there could once have been another section of house there? There seems to be the faintest trace of an outline to the right–and also a very wide span between the windows. With a house the size of this one, six or even eight windows to a side would seem more likely. This is a truly wonderful house.

    I knew there was an Indiana, Pennsylvania, but was unaware of Vermont, Il. Love to hear great new town names; and that’s a good one.

    While this is a beautiful house, unfortunately it’s in Forgottonia Illinois. This is about 30 minutes from where I grew up in Macomb, Illinois.

    For those interested, it’s best to work from home or be retired. The only major employers in Macomb are the Pella Window company, NTN Bower, and Western Illinois University. Unfortunately, WIU just laid off 132 employees (almost 10% of their staff). Unless emergency funding is acquired from the state, the layoffs may be permanent.

    One local does not think there are enough jobs to provide all 132 people with employment. And those who do stay and get jobs, the pay will be less, most likely part time, and most likely with no benefits.

    WIU enrollment was around 15,000 students when I attended 1996-2002. This last year it was 6,113. So it’s unfortunately looking bleek.

    Other major cities (75,000+) are Peoria, Springfield, and Quincy. Those are all over an hour away, so commuting from Vermont (in my humble opinion) wouldn’t be practical.

    I’m a bit confused about the two different types of trim around doors and windows. Anyone have any insight?
