Abandoned Home near Independence, Oregon

P6070545-A-lo-res

Nicely designed old home. Note the way the plane of the roof extends to form the porch roof. A stairway led to two upstairs bedrooms. There was a brick fireplace.

When I go inside places like this, I can feel the lives that were lived within.

Old homes designed like this show the cluelessness of almost all homes designed these days by architects.

    I always feel a bit sad to see old homes like this….

    seems they must have been very well built / designed to be still standing, even with such neglect.

    Yes, I love homes that have the roof extended to cover a porch. Just seems sensible, and it keeps the snow/rain off the porch…

    Shame at least the wood is not rescued/re used.
