Nice old cabin, tex. And as Dondi pointed out, there's another of those old rail fences. I think maybe Tenn. & Ken. might still have many of these types of cabins & fences..............
well gee, since they have them on ancient buildings in europe, i figured they were good to go. i just loved knowing that was how they were made. and it made a perfect taper to sit atop the one below it. well i'll be!!! (L I B) that is what you get from the peanut gallery!!! good to type to you tonight Ms Tex. it sure was spring here today! gotta start pruning soon.
Thanks, PLG, Cel, Dondi, and Trish. It is indeed charming and probably easy to sleep under that roof. Dondi, it used to be that tin was plentiful and cheap and durable. I can remember as a child growing up that my Dad covered every outbuilding with it. And also I remember folks talking about how soothing it was to sleep under one when it rained. I didn't know, but Trish informs us that they are expensive nowadays. And Trish, the tile, which I had at one time here, isn't a very good choice here in Texas, as I learned the hard way, because of the hail we get. Very expensive, but pretty.
i have been told that the tin roof is the longest lasting, most durable roof out there, and very expensive. most of them are painted. lots of folks in the country and in town have them. i think the spanish tiles (originally made by forming clay over the worker's thigh) may be more durable. that is what i have heard, but it is only heresay... I believe that looks like east texas Tex, maybe arkansas? this is not your place? darn! i was ready to pop over!
And an original split rail fence in the foreground! Not many of those around any more. The metal roof - when I was a kid, metal roofs were for machine sheds and shacks - too noisy to live under, and rusted. But I've noticed there are a fair number of them on houses in rural areas - wonder why?
I like this.I know that metal roof would be awesome to sleep under with a steady rain fall :)
Has a special charm to it!
You bet I do, Warbler! I'd love a secluded cabin in the middle of nowhere (except with a mall nearby) with pretty surroundings like this one. Thanks, CM & Warbler!
I think you have cabin fever, Tex. Porches in the front and back, both. Its a nice one. Thanks.
Cute little cabin tex!
