Even When Money is No Object...

Just visited Gari Melchers' home in Fredericksburg. He was active at the beginning of the last century. He changed his style to more impressionist. But he got $6000 per large portrait: equivalent to $92,000 today. Saw some adjustment even tons of money couldn't perfect.

He painted this young woman 12 different times to get to this one!

There's a box outside so you can reach the sunporch.

This mahogany dresser was so tall they cut holes in the floor to recess it!

Here's the original copper drip edge flashing plus a brand-new copper downspout...must have been very costly.
