I appreciate Jerrys STYLE of house very much...That is not what I talk about. I talk about the Surface of the Wood. If wood looks like this on your side of the pond...It must have been affected by nuclear fallout from Chernobyl during the years and you got my full support for Brexit !!
The house is very nice,,,, but even here on this side of the pond , we got pretty much experience from Wood weathering and oldering too!!
