A new carriage house is about to be delivered to a property owner in New Jersey.
The house is a carriage house, and owner Brian Ladd Jr. said he bought the house in 2010 to be able to enjoy the views from the top of the White Mountains, but the old carriages have started to rust, he said.
The carriages are made by a company called Ladd Co. in Pennsylvania.
The owners say they have received no complaints from neighbors about the rusting cars, and Ladd says it’s a problem that could be corrected if he purchased more of the property.
In 2015, Ladd bought a house on the same lot in Ladd County, Pennsylvania.
He says he has spent thousands of dollars to improve the carriages.
But, as he and other owners are getting ready to move the new house, the rust is starting to show.
“The rust is really starting to come off the old ones,” Ladd said.
“They’re pretty bad.
They’re pretty dirty, but you can tell that they’ve been cleaned.”
Ladd told WCBS 880 he bought them in the late 1960s.
He said it’s not uncommon for the rust to be visible from the street.
“They’re just kind of rusting,” he said of the old cars.
“I don’t really care what they’re made of, but they’re really bad.
I’m trying to figure out how to get rid of them.”
The owner of the carriage house in New York City has told The Associated Press that he’s seen the rust come off in several other cars, but he said the carters rust is worse in his car.
Ladd said the old carriage houses in New Brunswick and the Netherlands have seen a decrease in rust.
So far, Lapp said, there are no plans to replace the old Carriage Houses.
