Mansard de Orleans Nouveau!

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.
