Pictures of My "New" House

Caution: Clicking on a thumbnail with (BIG) in the name opens a picture that is from 500K to 1MB.  These will open up as large images then resize to fit your screen (at least that is how they behave on my system).

Click HERE for a floorplan.  It is not to scale, but is quite close.
