  1. Perhaps the person who was doing the patching has moved on and something broke in the bottom of the house. Looks like the time the coyote chased a cat under my place…right through the hole it made in the chasing…. That was a racket I’ll tell you!


  2. It’s a fabulous find of an authentic Dutch door! There are old shake shingles on the roof too. This is a cool one, Mike!
    A Dutch door (American English), or stable door (British English), or half door (Hiberno English), is a door divided horizontally in such a fashion that the bottom half may remain shut while the top half opens. The initial purpose of this door was to keep animals out of farmhouses, or keep children inside, while allowing light and air to filter through the open top. This type of door was common in the Netherlands in the seventeenth century and appear in Dutch paintings of the period. They were also commonly found in the Dutch cultural areas of New York and New Jersey before the American Revolution. (Wikipedia)
