last week i posted about this wonderful house that sits on a hill right by the road in lexington, ga. i usually don't enter old houses because of instability, but i just peeked in, since the door was open… and it took my breath away! i had to explore! how i would have loved to go upstairs but too risky, seeing what shape the house was in. the entry way was a wide hall with low ceilings and wide boards. the living room had pink plaster over horsehair and lathe that was starting to fall down. it was originally two rooms up and two rooms down with a central hall , then two rooms got added off the back. i think i may have to revisit and explore more!
