    Ready for use as a set for a Wes Anderson movie!

    That’s really beautiful. What a great idea.
    I wonder how she’s stopping the house from falling down?

      Or keeps it from getting wet, mildewed, etc.  Or keeps the animals out … Real houses have walls for a reason.

      Glancing at the “before” pictures, the house appears it was already in a relatively stable condition, so I’m guessing a few new boards nailed here and there was all it took to prop the thing up for a while longer.

      There are a lot of old barns or houses out there that are definitely death traps. Leaning at sharp angles, roofs bowing in, trees poking out holes.. fun stuff like that. This house wasn’t one of those.

    Cool as this is, what really intrigues me is that a town of fewer than 900 people (2006, latest I could find on a quick search) has an artist-in-residence.

    And the difference between a house with one wall missing and a full-size dollhouse is…?

    I love that the surrounding lawn had been mown in circles around it.
