Before: A Promising American Foursquare
It's rare to find an unaltered circa-1926 house in Florida anymore. And this isn't your typical construction. It was built by a wealthy merchant, Benjamin McCall, who had also worked as a carpentry foreman in the construction of the Panama Canal.
More recently, the front porch was falling in, the electrical didn't work, the condition was awful, but every original window, door, piece of hardware, and light fixture was still there. But, Judy and Pat Ball weren't in the door five minutes before Pat turned to his wife and said, "We have to buy this house." They signed the contract that night.
