Cobbled together old house

This is my "cobbled-together-old-house", pretty much as it is in real life, but taken down to its most basic form, as if filtered through memory. Perhaps my granddaughter might hold a mind's image like this of grammy's house when she is my age. I carry one of my grandmother's house in the foothills of southern Oregon. The image in my mind is like the one shown in pictures of the house, but with layers of memory that create an entire complex lens through which I see it, and gardens and fields around it.
