Memories of Home by WayneBenedet Memories of Home by WayneBenedet
I am particularly fond of the "L" shaped farm homes with the wrap around veranda. I have never lived in one, but that have always held a special attraction for me.

Perspective has been corrected.

I totally get why you like those, the other L-house-photo looks great too, but
this is particularly beautiful, a shame the house is abandoned.
The photo looks so "happy", it invites to dream: I could totally imagine living there, my future children catching grasshoppers around the house etc

I have always thought it would be a great experience to live in one of these houses. I think part pf the attraction for me is the isolation

This house reminds of the one from the film; Night of the Living Dead (remake).

I can imagine the film's characters trapped inside this house wondering what to do next, as they board up the windows and argue over a TV that gets pulled out from a closet (I mention the TV because of the roof antenna in the photo).

Very beautiful!
I love L-shaped homes, in general, they do not look as flat as square homes do.

me too. It was a common style out here that has gone out of favour.

It's somehow strange to see abandoned homes with TV antennas on top!

It is a lovely house. What a shame that it has been abandoned.

:iconwaynebenedet:

yes. I think it could still be lived in if someone had a desire. It is just a few miles from a small town.

It could be fixed, with some money for repair. Wish I could do it...

yes... it is still pretty livable, as long as the basement has not been flooded.

I like that style too.. I have lived in a couple of homes that had large verandas but not wraparound..

I can only imagine that. We have a covered deck that I can watch storms from, but it in not really the same as a wrap around porch.

Yea... the one mom had in her last place was in a small town in New Jersey, and we would sit out there to watch the Fourth of July parade (..which consisted of about every local fire truck, boy scout troop, and aging veteran).. go by lol..

That really is a beautiful house. I love they paint job the previous owners chose. You don't see bold coloring like that anymore. It really highlights the architectural features like the panelled doors and the mouldings

I bet this house could still be lived in, but the location is not great.

I like this house too. Nice roomy design. A bit headroom short upstairs, though.

BTW "StickyReens91" is nothing but a spammer dumping the same comment on picture after picture to promote the suspect photography course. Not that dA will do anything about it if you complain, of course.
