The windows slide left and right but they also open to the inside to really let in the southerly breezes and springtime fragrances.
Aura's house across the street was sold last year not long after she died. The people who bought it have completely gutted it and rehabbed it from top to bottom, inside and out, working nights and weekends for months.
They intend to put in back on the market as soon as it's complete, which should be soon. Click photo to enlarge.
Robbie's been also using a website called Freecycle for items that either don't get taken from the curb or for ones that can't be put out in the rain.
"The Freecycle Network is made up of many individual groups across the globe. It's a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns."
I’ve added a Flickr album of winter photos of the house, taken last month after a pretty snowfall.
