    Glad you included the original listing. The original listing shows some sweet details, like the gingerbread, shingles, multiple styles of shingles, stained glass, screen door and more. (I know. Just a screen door, but it’s a darling little old screen door! Love it! Love the sound!) I always thought that if I had a home like this, I’d paint each type a different but complementary color. And wouldn’t iron cresting just be the cherry on this sundae?

      Sharon, the photo you shared is surely a show-stopper, and a great example of the impact of a well thought out paint scheme!

    I live in Oregon and wish that I had a loan for this much. I would never move from this gorgeous home.

    I would Move to Oregon for this home!! Gorgeous bones! Love the gingerbread shingles, they remind me of my favourite place –Cape May, NJ. What a labour of love to restore this older lady to her former glory. Foreclosure makes me feel sad for whomever lost this beautiful home….I wonder where they went.

      Forgot to mention, Yes the old listing Really shows this house better! I love the snow covered pictures, but they do cover all the beautiful shingles. And seeing some of the furniture in the rooms, even with the packing going on, I think gives a better idea of what the possibilities will look like once she is furnished again. She sure is lovely!

      It is a sad story. The owners ran this home as a B&B. When his wife became sick with cancer, the husband turned the sitting room into a bedroom on the main floor. After his wife passed, the owner lost the home and moved away. There are hints around the house that she loved butterflies so we have decided that we will incorporate a few of them were we can.

        I am so delighted that the Woolery House has a new owner. My grandparent, Oscar and Mary Petre Lundell owned it in the late 1940s and through the 1950s. I loved that house.

        Grandpa and grandma bought it when they retired from the ranch on Willow Creek near the Gilliam county line. The Woolery House was their home but they also took in boarders like school teachers and people who were in Ione working on highway projects.

        Grandpa built the fence around the property and he juryrigged a contraption that opened the garage door without him having to exit the car

    Did anyone else notice that the risers on the stairs have a beautiful recessed panel? I don’t see that a lot! How beautiful!

    Glad you posted the link to the old listing, it shows the house as a home, in the new one it just looks sad. Also, my Grandma had the same wallpaper in her kitchen in Duncan, Ok.

      We believe the kitchen wall paper to be part of a 1950’s remodel including the beautiful (although not appropriate) ceramic farm sink in a metal cabinet. We will be saving the sink/cabinet in hopes it will find a new home in a more appropriate setting!

    Hey everyone, wanted to drop in and say hello. My wife Catherine and I are in the process of purchasing this home in Ione, Oregon. We are both excited and overwhelmed to be a part of this restoration AND at the prospect of becoming the current caretakers of a home whose story both predates our own and with any success, will outlast our great grand children.

    In researching this home I have discovered that it is very likely a revised version of a G.F. Barber CS2 (cottage souvenir 2nd edition) Design No. 1 and MD3 (modern dwellings 3rd edition) Design No.16-E although certain details match other GF Barber designs (ie private porches off of rooms to left and right of turret)

    Everything about this home screams GF Barber. That being said, design factors that I used to identify it as GF Barber: 1. Turret height and size 2. Room layout 3. pocket door size/location 4. Local stories 5. cellar height detail and furnace location 6. attic window size and location 7. dining room location/size/detail 8. Fireplace /hearth detail 9. Private porches off of bedrooms to left and right of turret

    We have a 12 month construction loan and our goal is to return the home to its original condition. Very little has been changed to the structure itself with the exception of removing the stairs to the 1000+sf attic and adding 3 bathrooms one of which may or may not have been original. All hardwood floor are still largely intact though some is under tile, laminate and linoleum. weighted wood framed windows are 40% operational (painted shut, broken ropes/weights and some broken glass. The windows each have 2 panes, top (stained glass) opens down and bottom (clear) opens up. Vent windows exist over several doors and kitchen windows “disappear” inside the wall cavity when opened. Electricity is currently a mix of cap and tube and new wiring.

    One more very interesting detail of this beautiful home is that the entire roof surface is clad in 1×12 old growth some boards appear to be nearly 30′ long! The interior walls are clad in 1×6 pine which is then covered with canvas material and wall paper.

    We have been unsuccessful in locating a contractor willing or capable of doing this type of restoration work with most suggesting a metal roof and vinyl siding/windows. The local insulation contractor suggested sealing the “disappearing windows” so we could blow insulation into the outer walls. We said thanks and have a nice day. With exception of electrical and plumbing, our sole focus is to get back to original architecture and design.

    We hope to close on or before July 3rd when we will be having an open house to kick off the restoration. We will be planning a grand party once construction is completed (est spring 2020)

    My wife and I have 30 years of construction experience between us and are realizing that we will most likely be doing 75% of the work ourselves because it seems very few have the craftsmanship or even basic understanding of this home’s historic significance or construction techniques.

    If anyone has comments or suggestions we would greatly appreciate any help!

    Blessings and have a wonderful day

      Again, so delighted to hear that the beautiful Woolery House will have a new owner soon. Getting a contractor to come to Ione for such an extensive project will be tough. I know an excellent and affordable roofing contractor in Boise but I’m not sure you could get him there. I tried to entice my son to look at the house but none of us wanted to relocated to Ione.

      We will check in with you periodically to see how thing are coming whenever we are in Ione. If you wish to contact me please do so at jahli2003 @ earthlink. net

      I have several cousins who still live in Ione. You may already know Susan who was raised in the house next door to you on the west side. She can supply some of the history of the house.
