The Perfect House for a Teacher

What would be the perfect house for a teacher?  An old school house of course.


A couple of people asked about my house so I thought I would post a before and after picture.

Called Archer's School House (SS#1),  it was built in the 1800's.


This one room school house closed as a school in 1950 and was bought by a local family for $500.  They renovated the inside and in 1990 sold it.  It had one more owner before we bought it in 2006.  This is what it looks like today.  We added a covered porch last year and the deck this year.   I would love to find the bell and restore it on top of the house.
