Good to know Tara! I like that look. An older home is just a gem of an ol gal! Cranky sometimes, can be a bit of a wind bag but always there to keep you safe, warm and is very stable!

Nice brickwork. I love a brick home but they are uncommon in the north. I am all for low maintenance.

Good one, I liked the previous tip as well, transition from wider to narrower for creating the illusion of greater depth.
