  1. I thought to myself - "there's something odd about that staircase" and when I clicked on it I see it's upside down :) I found your blog through a facebook comment made by Leigh McKenna (Rosebank) from whom I purchased an old farmhouse on Butcher Rd. (Elmsdale) Currently we just come out for the summers but in a couple of years we'll be living there permanently. Love learning about the island's architecture through your blog!
