Some of you may recognize this old house. I recently took another trip back, and the man who owns it was mowing the grass. So.... I got a little history.


The Guyitt house was built circa 1845 and purchased by the current owners grandparents Roy and Ethel Guyitt. Their children a son and a daughter remained in the home until the daughter passed away in 2003. At that time the grandson Pete purchased this home to keep in his family. He does maintain the exterior as best as can be, there have been wedding photos taken here among other countless stories he was happy to share ~ thank you so much Pete


Still away but trying to keep up, hope you are all having a wonderful weekend, it's sunny here in Nova Scotia today, a great day for adventures

This house sits quietly in the middle of nowhere, miles from any occupied building. Most of the snow had melted around here and we enjoyed above average temperatures.

Another found subject (previously visited) during the TAG project hunt! This would have been quite the house...

Clandeboye House on the Clandeboye Estate,currently home to Lindy, the Marchioness of Dufferin and Ava, widow of the last Marquess. The estate dates back to the late 1600's with the current house dating from 1801.


It was open to the public today and we were free to roam around the beautiful grounds....a fabulous day out :)

The Christian House in Heritage Park, San Diego. Heritage Park has preserve some of the Local Treasures(Houses), that would have been otherwise destroyed in the name of progress. The covered windows are due to current renovations

When you drive across the surrounding park and see Chatsworth House for the first time, a sumptuous pile of yellow stone surrounded by gardens, fronted by the River Derwent and backed by a tree-covered hillside, it fairly takes your breath away. It is not hard to see why this is the premier tourist attraction of the area.


The original house here was the work of Sir William Cavendish and his third wife Bess of Hardwick in the mid 16th Century. Sir William was a Crown Commissioner responsible for dissolving monasteries and his reward was a gift of land here. Sir William died in 1557 with the house partly constructed and Bess completed a house with a central courtyard and four corner towers, facing east towards the hillside. No trace of this can now be seen, but the modern house retains many of the Elizabethan interior walls and the Huntingtower on the hill above the house dates from the 1580s.


The first Duke rebuilt Chatsworth in Classical style between 1686 and 1707, using an obscure Dutch architect called William Talman. He later fired Talman and the house was completed by Thomas Archer.


The Library and North Wing were added by the 6th Duke between 1790 and 1858, the work of Wyatville, and the stables and bridges over the River Derwent were added in the 18th century by Paine. The park was landscaped by the 4th Duke (1720-1764), who engaged 'Capability' Brown to reshape the formal garden into the more natural one you see today.


The 6th Duke engaged Joseph Paxton as the head gardener at the age of 23, resulting in the enrichment of the gardens and the creation of the Emperor Fountain (to impress the Czar of Russia when he visited) as well as the Great Conservatory. Paxton worked at Chatsworth the rest of his life, staying for 32 years. The house and gardens have remained little changed since this time, the only major exception being the demolition of the Great Conservatory and its replacement by a maze.


Many famous people have come to Chatsworth, some to stay and others to live there. Among the most famous are Mary Queen of Scots, who was here as a guest and prisoner of Bess of Hardwick and her fourth husband, the Earl of Shrewsbury, between 1573 and 1582. Another was Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, who lived here in a famous 'menage a trois' with the 5th Duke and Lady Elizabeth Foster in the late 18th century.

Some of the houses in the village of Aldworth on the edge of the Wessex Downs. The house in the foreground used to be a chapel, while the ones behind used to be the village school.

Mother Earth will have this all back someday.

After several sweet, little bird pictures, I wanted to do something a little more dramatic so I got out today and went to this little shotgun house I've driven by a million times. For those of you who don't know, a shotgun house is a small frame house and if you fired a gun through the front door, the bullet would travel straight out the back door. Hope that makes sense. It's a southern thing.

Anyway, it's been abandoned for sometime and the paint is peeling and there's poison ivy covering one side of it. The kind of house only us photographers would love!

After posting a couple of dreary winter scenes in a row, I've decided to go back to a fall image with a bit of warmth to it.


I know nothing about these abandoned homes on a farm south of Laporte, Saskatchewan. I can only speculate on why the two houses were built so close together. Perhaps one is the old house and the other is a newer one. Perhaps the newer house was for an offspring of the farmers. In any event, both are empty and forgotten now. I thought it was kind of odd for that truck to still be there, considering it has considerable collector value.

The Scottish capital has an astonishing number of houses made of stone, probably due to the abundance of it in the area. The best thing is, the colours of the stones change with the weather. Imagine having a different looking house with every season!
