Someone once told me that our home in Yazoo city was just another character in our story. Like any character, our homes, whether old or new, have a back story.
My sister and brother-in-law's home situated on the Tchoutacabouffa River on the Mississippi Gulf Coast has an interesting history. Much of their home utilizes reclaimed wood from an old schoolhouse in New Orleans. One of my favorite "tells" are the doors. These grand 12 foot beasts were once the entrances to elementary classrooms and have had their doorknobs moved a little north to accommodate taller passers.
