Victorian Splendor

Originally designed by J. Merrill Brown in 1887, this Queen Anne style home sits proudly in Cambridge's Avon Hill Historic District. Past was blended with present in the restoration of this property to its original 19th century elegance. The design satisfied historical requirements with its attention to authentic detailsand materials; it also satisfied the wishes of the family who has been connected to the house through several generations.

Clean out the shed and garage. This is a biggie! Divide the job over several weekends and plan a yard sale at the end to get rid of excess stuff.See ways to make more money and have fun at a yard sale

How the frame of the shed is the same of ours - the awnings and additions giving the illusion of a "porch" would be easy to build and add onto our existing frame.
