Carson Zoom In

I was being lazy and bored today so I downloaded some of the high resolution B&W photos of the Carson Shack from 1960. I zoomed in on some of the detail and cropped a few of the highlights. Enjoy!

























I think I need to stop looking at these photos. My house looks so plain and boxy to me now.

I am in awe of the skill and talent that went into the creation of the Carson House. I was also in awe when I saw the Full Frontal post. You are doing an excellent job restoring the Petch House.

HPH,

Thanks...

You know, I think I appreciate that place even more now that I've been able to get "close" enough to really see the detail.

Awwww Greg, the Petch House does not need to feel inferior nor compete with the "mix of every major style of Victorian Architecture" which "'epitomizes the range of possibilities for eclectic design expression'".(1)

You could own a cinder block like me! Keep up the good work.
