Mes amies de Saint Louis! Jump on a bateau and let's paddle down the Mississippi to visit New Orleans. Thanks to Karen Gadbois who provided me with bad mansard pix around New Orleans. She writes a great blog Squandered Heritage, CLICK HERE, about New Orlean's architecture and the struggles of post-Katrina rehabilitation and demolition.
Karen labeled this home 'mansard with wings.' A perfect description. This house is the bulky maxipad of architecture. I'm not sure there's another house like this anywhere in America.
