A Good Door

Don't you just love this door. I pronounce it, "Good" ~ not that my opinion matters a whole lot but I took a picture for two reasons. 1. I just like it, plain and simple. 2. If we ever build a house, I wanted Tim to have a picture of one of my favorite doors. You never know!

This is the front door to the house that Rose Wilder built for her parents, Laura and Almanzo. The house is quite charming. And in 1928, she built it for $11,000, a hefty little sum in that day and in that part of Missouri!

I like this house but there is something extra special about the house that Laura and Almanzo built with their own hands. It only took them 17 years. See....maybe in 17 years we'll have our house, too! :)

Oh! I like this door too. You should enlarge the picture, frame it and hang it in your house. The stone house of Laura and Almanzo's is charming, isn't it?

I agree Renee, I love this door too and the whole house! I would love to see this and my girls would think this was very cool too. What part of Mo. was this?
