Why "Eleven Gables"

When we purchased our home in 2006, I read somewhere that one should always name their house. So, the thinking began. I wanted to name my home after things I love.  Love antiquing, gardening, reading,.... I began to look around my home. I live in a Southern Living plan called the CrabApple Cottage. Not digging the "Crab" part. The folks before us added on a cabana of sorts with three gabled windows. I also have eight gabled windows on the house. Eleven Gables.... had a nice ring to it. Plus, I adore Anne Shirley of Green Gables! So, Eleven Gables was born!
