Squint Shot 021412

We are spending some time looking at squint shots of a beautiful house on East Grand River -- sometimes still referred to as the "old Defendorf" house. If you check back the last few days, you will see the windows are the front door (including a glass bubble in one window) and the doorbell.
In the living room, I thoroughly checked out the beautiful trim around the front and side windows. This trim was all hand-cut and created by layer different types of trim together. It has been painted over the years and the size of the trim commands the room. Looking closely at the corners that were created, they were not always cut at exact 90 degree angles -- so much of the cutting must have been done by estimation. It is certainly unusual and gorgeous to look at.
