Hello friends. If you've ever visited Papa Ted's website you probably remember his "House of the Month" section. January of 2005 featured what Papa Ted might be the only surviving "Hacienda Lighthouse". Well I found one so we know there are two the, a right handed and a left handed tower. I am posting both for your viewing please. Enjoy

HOLY SMOKES!! What a find Pete! I remember when that lot hit ebay, I have a bunch of photos saved from it to my harddrive somewhere. Super Cool!!!

I don't recognize that 9 pane window to the left of the door either unless it's rounded off at the top. I've never seen a 9 pane square!! Might deserve a repo some day.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing!
-Brian

That is an incredible find, Pete. Am I understanding this correctly? As far as you know there are only 2 of these in existence? Amazing. I am also impressed that Brian can look at it and realize that there is a unique window set as well.
