So, What Did You Learn?

Mark Twain once said, “I can live for two months on a good compliment.”

It was about a year ago today that this website was redone and revamped. I’ve been trying to – systematically and patiently – post a few of the 35,000 photos I’ve taken in the last 10 years of researching kit homes.

Have you enjoyed the site? Have you learned something new from the 200+ posts (and 1000+ photos) that I’ve put here in the last year? Earlier this month, this site had its 100,000th visitor.

If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read, I’d sure be grateful to hear from you. If you’ve learned something wonderful, please tell me, and leave a comment below.

Like Twain, I can live for a couple months on one good compliment.  🙂

And in the meantime, I think I’ll take a few days off from blogging and dream about my future life in the mountains.  I love the mountains, and one day, I’ll live there.

    This site has been a rewarding source of information.

    In specific terms, its expertise in the phenomenon of mail-order homes has been an eye opener. Now I see the influence of their designs over and over.

    More broadly, it has enabled reflection on the implicit logic and taste that underlay those designs and their times. In broadest terms, it has provided an entree into American history.

    Thank you so much for publishing your work.
