Cawood Mansion Part 1 Outside

Richard L. Cawood Residence From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Richard L. Cawood Residence was built in 1923 by Richard Cawood in East Liverpool, Ohio. Cawood was the president of Patterson foundry and owned a steel mill. He had an intense interest in architecture and design and often designed smaller houses.

The design of the house evolved over 10 years. Cawood included a tower, chapel, and Porte-cochère [a covered entrance large enough for vehicles to pass through, typically opening into a courtyard. NORTH AMERICAN a porch where vehicles stop to discharge passengers]. The house is an example of Italian Renaissance architecture combined with Spanish eclectic additions.

The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in January 1988.[1]A home built in 1923, being sold. Needs lots of work but if restored would be awesome

Legally speaking framing is still in a murky area of the law though there have been court cases in which framing has been seen as violation of copyright law. Many cases that were taken to court ended up settling out-of-court with the one doing the framing agreeing to cease framing and to just use a regular link to the other site.
