Thanks for sharing that! What an interesting article. That's probably what it was like for a lot of people who let the show use their houses. Except, Peyton's was probably one of the worst. I don't think the other houses saw the same amount of physical "abuse" this one probably did. This article also explains why they had to use a different house for Peyton in the later seasons.
And, I've been one of those stalkerish people, stopping my car across the street to take a picture.
