I went down to Landrum, South Carolina yesterday to check out an old house my parents are looking at buying. Its a 4,600 sq ft craftsman style home built in the early 30’s. It needs a ton of work, but its full of history and character. Dark floors, wide mahogany moldings, crazy fireplaces, and windows everywhere. You can help but love it.
The space hasnt been touch in years. The rooms are pretty much empty, except for the occasional odds and ends and pieces of furniture. Why with old abandoned homes are there always things left behind? The desk or dresser, the random cups and plates. There is always a chair in a corner or a stack of books in the closet. Why? Why didnt they take everything? It fascinates me.
