    I too would not be surprised if a leopard answered a knock on the door. Looks like the stovewood laid in a bed of mortar was made to last!

  10. Really love the dotted look that the construction method gives to this home…it would’ve been my choice as I love polka dots of all kinds. Wonder if they are more or less durable than other types of early construction. Sure is pretty!
