Hats off to the other people's pics posted - you all have some great shots.

Below, an old empty farm house, Northern, Minnesota. Shot with my old Nikon D50 several years back.

Old house in the village of Cetturu, near Houffalize, close to the border with Luxemburg in Belgium.
On the second picture, you can see that the house is still inhabited, with new window frames.

wow , even after 50 years of being not lived in it still looks like a solid home. For fun take a metal dector to the place and see what turn up. IF you can find the orginal 1780 crapper it might be wroth diggin up because stuff that got drop down never got retrivied. After all the years all that shit has turned into dirt so it's not as crappy as it sounds.

I'll certainly go through the place with a fine tooth comb , already had a snoop round and found an old mobilet in the roof and 5 old ploughs , wooden cart wheels and wine barrels !!!!

As for crappers !!!!! "Where there's muck there's money" and it's got it's own well that'll need investigating

Only another 3 weeks before we get the official key

Here's a couple more pics of the inside

Phil,
I'm loving the Oak Truss barn. Perhaps bike storage/man cave downstairs and mezzanine living area, lots of glass and light???
