architecture CONTEST

This home was completed in Dec. 1900. George F Barber was famous Architect from Kentucky. He sold house plans all over the US. My wife and I have owned this home for the last 30 years, the interior and exterior have been fully restored. To give you an idea of the scale the downstairs windows are 6'6"tall the second floor are 6'0". The roof finials are 48" tall. We have the original blueprints for this home so I was able to scale them to reproduce and trim that was missing. This home is listed in the Wisconsin and National Registries of Historical Places. I used two of the interior photos in the stay home contest.
