More houses from Attica

This is a turning the corner shot...I was pleasantly surprised with it being as good as it is.
We did go on down the block and stopped and I walked back and took these photos...
After taking a few of the house below. I think it looks like something from the North Pole with those steep, steep roofs.
Look at that trim, and if you don't enlarge any of them, enlarge this one and look at the door, I don't know if that was an old style of door or if it is one that has been made by a craftsman. I suggest enlarging all of them to see better, though.
Today has been one of those days around here. We have been talking about having a new furnace put in Roger called today. The guy came out and they are coming back tomorrow to put it in. They should be able to do it in one day. We both feel relief at having made the decision.

The guy from the heating/air conditioning place had no more than got gone when I noticed that our phone was not working. I got busy and called the phone company, and they told me it should be repaired by 6:00 p.m. tomorrow. Again we were pleasantly was fixed within an hour or two.

Tonight I have spent most of the evening working on finding all the pictures of Roger's knives...and making resized copies and putting them in a folder all their own.

I still need to go down and get my quilt folded and put away till nothing happens to it tomorrow...I went down earlier to do it, but started quilting on it again. I have hardly touched it since the day I started quilting it, but did feel like I was getting 'in the zone' this afternoon.

Beautiful pictures of those homes, Rose. I especially like that last one with that fancy trim... Looks like a Gingerbread House!!!!!!

Congrats on getting a new furnace. It's always hard to make those decisions ---but when you do, it feels kinda good, doesn't it?????

Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday.

If the handle on that door is at the normal height, the door itself is unusually tall. That makes me think it was custom made.

We replaced our furnace a few years ago. We added central air at the same time. I was amazed at the size change in furnaces (from something huge to something small) and such better efficiency.

Sometimes things work out the way they're supposed to! And you do need heat up there!

As I've said before, I love these old houses. The first one reminds me so much of small towns in Kansas where my grandparents lived.

Rose: The houses you are capturing are so neat.

Great old houses. I love the trim but I bet it's a pain to paint.

We got a new furnace in December. We had no heat (except for electric space heaters) for a week. You are smart to do it now in April. :)

What fine homes you shot! I like the detail in your images Rose. It does add so much to enlarge them.
The intricate art work on these eaves is remarkable.
Fine shooting, Rose!

Aren't those houses so pretty? I would hate to paint one, though. :)

Looks like Attica would be a quaint place to live. :)

Wonderful details on all of these! I had an aunt and uncle that once lived in a nice house like these and I should post a photo for Remember Whensday of it. It is now a B&B and I would love to go stay there some time! I really love old different from what I live in.
