The houses depicted in today's photos were not lived in when I visited the Twillingate area in 2004. Each was boarded up and hadn't been painted for quite a while.
The red siding on the house in the first photo was starting to fall off and it looks as though part of the lower roof may be ready to fall. The high grasses indicate that no one had been there for a while. The The grass around the home in the next two photos is well maintained and it looks as though someone had started to paint, but never finished it. There was no evidence of recent activity around the house in the last image.
