Garconnière shedworking - 1

We mentioned the Garconnière at Houmas House in Darrow, Louisiana, some time ago but now Bill Alger from Houmas has sent in some more detailed and up to date photos. The garconierre we featured has been transformed into an office for the Houmas House historian, with a wing attached. The photos show the downstairs living room and the upstairs office.The conversion, carried out in 2007, also includes a bedroom, kitchen, dining area and bathroom. Tomorrow we'll feature a second garconierre on the property that has been transformed into a bar.

    Isn't the building featured tomorrow correctly known as a 'Pub Garconniere'?
