    I never understood replica homes (White House, this, etc.). However, if a replica was the goal, this one is pretty darn accurate, at least from the front facade. Interior isn’t bad, but I can’t the way the paneling in the living room only goes up half the wall.

    Kind of idiotic concept.

    The home was designed within the framework of a time and era where lifestyles are radically different than today and when the the limits construction materials and components greatly affect the outcome of the design. Firstly, throw out the dated floor plan; then re-imagine the facade to take advantage of more advanced window technology and freshen up that which Jefferson himself would have considered had he had 21st century technology…..
