Multi-Story Gothic Wood Structure

Gary Brewer has been adding decking onto his house since the early 2000s. He also has portraits and sculptures on the property.

[Laura Gatannah, 07/07/2020]

Brewer's ultimate plan is to make his wooden construction taller than the county courthouse across the street. Not everyone in town is happy about that. Brewer hopes to open the decks to visitors when he's achieved his goal.
