I corresponded with the owners of the Fawcett house, and this filming was done without their knowledge or approval. Does anyone know what recourse they might have?

The Teater studio is about 4 miles from Bliss (pop. 318) on River Road. The best way to find it on Google Maps is to look for the roof shape. There isn't another one quite like it near Bliss.

SDR: You are correct, the upper part of the wall suffers from comparison with the lower. Kent Hale, the original stonemason was fired by the Teater's with his work about 2/3 complete.
