Thursday is "This Old House" Day

[click image to enlarge]

This sad looking house located on Lincoln Avenue, definitely needs lots of TLC. If you click and enlarge the photo you will see the front gutter hanging by a thread and a missing attic window . . . perfect hangout for neighborhood squirrels and raccoons.

Houses on Lincoln street should look good. I would certainly change the garish paint color from teal green to something warmer. These days I am guessing it would take a lot of money to restore the house to its original glory. It makes a nice photo and a telling one on the state of real estate in this country today.

I guess it's on the way of being a green environment house. That is good for I wounder what kind of tax break he will get from the Obama nation government. Great picture's on all but this one jumped out at me for I live with Houses like this all around me in Mount Clemens Mi. USA
