Special Wallpaper

This was another gem found on the original plaster walls in a house located in College Park, Georgia.  Drywall was removed and it revealed this bucolic scene - of certainly another place, from another time. The wallpaper is very ornate and colorful, but also very peaceful.

Restroom Break - In Historic, College Park, Georgia

This bathroom toilet was installed in the barn-bathroom in a turn of the century home in College Park, Georgia. This relic of restroom history has been successfully secured and saved from the landfill.  It is available for sale - but not guaranteed to meet current building codes calling for low-flow!

Not necessarily deconstructed.........

I wanted to share a site I stumbled upon:  "http://weburbanist.com/2009/10/12/adaptive-reuse-15-creative-house-home-conversions/

These homes are truly "repurposed". But I really can't imagine hauling groceries up all the stairs in a "billboard house"........
