Richard Kronick paid a visit to the site in December 2006, and send this note:

"It was while Larry Brown (current owner with wife Nancy) was renovating -- knocking out some bad plaster -- that he discovered the following hand-written note on the inside of the opposite wall:

'Built for C. O. Jorgenson
by J. L. Day contractor'."
