I would scream "Stop!" or "Back up!". He would do it. It was great fun. After he got the hang of it, he found a few of the cottages too.
This first one was being worked on...Unfortunately the builders left the ugly scaffolding in front.
The people that own it must have gotten tired of caring for the garden. The whole front yard was paved and there was a new garage built to the right. Very pretty house, but with the exception of the trees and flowers close to the house, no interesting landscaping.
This one is of the same era, but by a different designer. It is being worked on also.
They did a little better at adding a garage(right side front). It has all kinds of interesting details. I love the triple window on the ground floor. The gate to the left leads to....Nowhere. The little gate post with the oval window in the center is just for "cute". There is an arch behind it, but no real purpose that I could see....Maybe there is a door on the other side and they keep garden tools inside? The corner posts were all heavier at the bottom than the top. Almost Frank Lloyd Wright style.
This one is the only finished one that I will show you today. The visitor's office opens at 10. Then we will purchase a map to the houses.
Walter found this one and it is fantastic. I want to move in here.
If you enlarge the photo and look to the left side you will see a wonderful wave roof! The whole house had this.
The wrought iron gate looks to be hand made. The whole yard was like a jungle. I love the weather worn fence on the left side. The trees behind it were planted so close together that they look like another fence behind the first one.
Here's a view of the front of the house. I imagine that the garage was added later, but whenever it was done, it blends into the house perfectly.
I think that this one is my favorite so far. It is really beautiful.....Much inspiration for mini houses here. And it is done in the same colors as our real house.
Hopefully, we will find the other houses later today with the map. Until then, I will leave you with a friend that I made outside our hotel room. I have no idea what he is, but he is not afraid of people. I am going to have to see if I can find out who he is. For now, he is a mystery.
Time to go find a map.
See you tomorrow.
