Yes, they make them in selvedge denim. If you work them on right they get sweet fadez over the drawer pulls.
That's not the post that came down - they actually wanted to take a shot of the full house, or the other side of the house (to the right of what's pictured) but couldn't at that time because the pillar had fallen.
I recently found a few Amish guys who put it back up for about $100. It still needs to be looked at but that was a steal to get it back up.
There was actually one pillar that was separated from the house some years back and was sold at auction. In one of the coolest Christmas gifts of all time, my Dad tracked it down and bought it back and gave it to us for Xmas. The only problem is that the sucker is 12 feet tall and it's too soft a wood (poplar) to really go back outside again. It's been damaged quite a bit over the years. And there are only 2 possible places in the house to put something that big, and one of them is the bedroom, and my wife refuses to put a giant Jesus (the sculpture is Christ touching Lazarus to life) in the bedroom. The other spot, in the living room, is highly problematic.
