This house was under a great deal of stress from all the years of sagging and settling that she had experienced. As we removed the siding we would occasionally step back as sounds of snapping, popping, and groaning came from her.
Without a doubt she was the most vocal old home that I had ever experienced.
It was not until after we had finished building the clients home, nearly a year later, that I ever showed these photos to the them. I was afraid that they would think me mad to have used such a structure to build them a new home.
