On a recent walk around the blocks surrounding the Little Bitty in the Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood with my dear wife Karen and Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle, a recently painted house caught my eye.

Two recently painted houses, in fact, next door to each other and the same exact color.
The way they sat, their architectural style, the way their roofs sat and lined up … Even though the one to the left was way bigger and the one to the right was almost an after thought, I couldn’t get one concept out of my mind.
Back in the day, I have a feeling, these two houses were one. And somebody split them apart, moved the little guy off a bit to create another dwelling, and there came freedom and independence.
Do you think these two houses were once one? If so, do you think they moved the little one to the right, or removed a section from the middle? Or am I just imagining things and they were built in different years by different builders?
