Holy toe holds, Professor

Is that a 1890's edition?

Yep yep yep gauge, you know your houses!
That's an original Erdman family house in Baltimore. They gave many acres of land to the city and they have an avenue named after them. I live on one side of that avenue.

Yes there are stained windows/doors but they were not in place because they were stored in the basement when the house was rented out before I bought it. There are over 35 windows and they almost all have the wavy glass of yesteryears.
There is more land behind the house, were the columns are and to the right were my garage would be. The garage was built in the 20 to fit two model T Fords and it has cathedral ceilings toped with slate and some superb copper work. It even comes with a small cute fireplace. I have a feeling that before the garage was built maybe a detached kitchen used to be there and they rebuilt around the existing fireplace. This could indicate that the house could have been near or on an older house where in the old days they cooked away from the dwelling.
I am not too sure about the size of my land but here is a view of the lake behind me from the second floor.

RE: Tile roof

Here is an example of what not to do. They used asphalt shingles that are OK in color but they will not last. They also cheapen the look of the house. This one is north of me.

There's some wacko with a copper roof around the bend. Once oxidation occurs it might look a little less like a occult temple.

Freude am fahren!

Nothing wrong with copper as long as you use heavy gauge. The color change is awesome at every stage.

Yeah, copper is very very classy and fits your house very well, as does that roof, wow. You are quite lucky to own such a structure.[:)]
