i was searching around online one night trying to properly identify the style of our house, and someone recommended this book by virginia & lee mcalester, so i ebay'd it immediately. it arrived yesterday and i've been stuck in it ever since. i can't wait until it gets warmer and we can ride bikes around the neighborhood identifing house styles. that sounds like the perfect day to me and i'm getting a little impatient waiting for the sunshine. i've done pretty good this winter, but now i'm so over it.
