    Default The iggly piggly house


    This farmhouse I visited has to be one of the most dangerous I have been in.the house looked like it was originally two houses converted into one.i might be wrong.it had two sets of staircases.the house is suffering severe subsidence.all the bottom rooms have acro props holding the upstairs up.there was even props on the outside laying on the ground pushing the walls in because they are sliding sideways.i think the whole thing will eventually collapse.i braved the upstairs.i could feel the boards underfoot very brittle.i for once did not hang around up there.the house is mainly empty but some nice decay and features.the rooms were all shapes with walls leaning in and out.

    Great stuff, I regret missing this one out the other month. But then, I wouldn't do a good take on it like this one.

    Nice set there. I particularly like the window shot.

    Not sure I'd have braved the drum/acroprop combo myself.

    It looks like this house is just about ready to collapse, going by the cracks in the wall. But somebody is trying to save it with that much supports being fitted.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Bloody hell, that looks like once strong gust of wind in the wrong direction could topple it. Great pics though, love the window shot with the sun coming through, and the one of the range cooker. Cheers.
