Sweet. I love the old appliances and craftsmanship they had!
Here are a couple pics of mine. 1920 Cleveland Colonial. Bought it in 1984. Prepped for paint and later, sporting new siding. Remodeled the entire interior, plumbing and electrical. Excuse the glare.
A beautiful Craftsman house, Chris B Critter. Sad that it got demolished.
My joint isn't super old. From the mid 60s. And she doesn't look like much from this view looking at the back porch...
But the view FROM the back porch makes it worth it...
What a cool thread. Our brick house in Hamilton, Canada was built in 1908. has all the right quirks and creaks.
No one knows exactly when "my"house was built,but probably 1870-80.
It was a general store until 1967,then it became a modern house with running hot water and indoor toilet.
I still have most of the bathroom from 1967 left!
Pic:3-4 1950-60 from inside the store
Man this is a cool thread. Some great homes.
My childhood home was an officers quarters that had been moved from the local naval air station after wwII. My grandfather owned a half acre and per my dad move and build the house on part of the property. The other house on the property was the original farm house from the area. It had a stacked stone foundation. We have pictures of my relatives that owned it with no other houses in the background. When it was built it was outside the city limits in farm country. It's now in a dense city neighborhood Lake City.
After there I moved to Wallingford, into a 1920 craftsman, it's a huge 3 story house. My parents ruined it.
Then I moved around a few houses. Nothing of note. But old. After a few years I landed in Ballard in a 1912 farm house. Again the oldest house on the block. Almost all original besides the kitchen. Original claw foot tub. 10 foot ceilings. Covered sitting porch. The garage had wood floors. It was really cool.
Then I had a 1922 alki beach bungalow that was moved in the 60's to the Georgetown neighborhood. Tiny little shack. No insulation . Built out of 2×3. Shed roof. It was really cool as well. Very funky. Spent a summer remodeling it. Sold for about 200k more than I had payed and into it. Then bough a boring 2014 with a huge shop. Enjoying not fixing things for once....
Gonna start on a 20's style Craftsman bungalow copy here in the next couple years. Build it on the other side of the property, then rent this one.
I'll have to grab some pictures.
Yes, please do!!!!....
My wife and I are up in New England doing the fall foliage deal. There are phenomenal houses up here!
Okay, I'll play. This is our vintage farm house, we believe to have been built in the 1860's. The abstract mentions a dwelling existing on the property in 1850 but no mention of a house until ten years later. We refer to it as our moron house. Watching on of the home improvement shows my wife heard someone refer to their house as having had been added more on to multiple times. And that describes our home.
My shop is the blue building hiding behind the jeep.
Mine. 1911 Craftsman. Second family to own it.
We close on this one next week. It’s just a block away from where we live and is on the Wisconsin Historical homes website. Built in 1860. Second oldest house in our small town.
It’s made from local quarry stone and the walls are 2’ thick. It’s built like a brick shithouse.
Our home in Connecticut for 23 years that was built in 1979 which we sold year end 2019. In
new condo in Florida now,
Are you sure this house was built in 1979?
Looks a hundred years older!
Picture from yesterday, my 1958 Facel Vega FV4 in front of our 1936 moderne house.
Yeah, I can’t wait to get some pictures of my rides in front of my stone house, but in my case I think a horse is more appropriate.
Sorry for posting a couple pics from Google street view guys, but the grass is brown and the trees have no leaves yet, so I figured the street view pics looked better.
My house in Los Angeles. Built on the west side in 1930 (Melrose & Santa Bonita). Moved in 1955(!) to Boyle Heights, just east of Downtown.
Very attractive house, but isn't it time you got an indoor toilet?
I’ll play. Here’s our vintage, pre-war farmhouse. Pre civil war, that is. Oldest part of the house was built in the 1850s. Just after the end of the war, the family that owned the farm to the south bought this property and lived here for the next 100 years or so. The house has been expanded and renovated over the years. If you go down to the basement, you can see that they used trees for the floor joists, even left the bark on. They finally added electricity and plumbing sometime in the 1960s. There are several barns on the property that are over 100 years old as well.
This yours? I have a 1850's limestone house. Just wondering if the masion work is the same on all sides or was there a front side where the work looks better? Thats how ours is
We closed today. I’ll post some pictures after I get a few of each side.
My House built 1946, pic taken 2015.
Indoor toilets are almost off topic here! Lol.
I do love this thread. Awesome houses guys, keep um coming.
one thing ive noticed since we moved (almost 3 years ago) is that it takes awhile in spring for the house to warm up, same in fall takes awhile for the house to cool down. Walls are so thick the retain the heat/cold.
Here ya go. Looks the same on all sides really. Obviously the rear view is an addition.
I measured yesterday, and it’s actually 21” from the outside wall to inside. I had to open a window to figure it out.
I’ll have to see if the heat and cool in spring and fall is the same here. I would imagine it would be.
