This weeks theme is Old Fashioned
This weeks photo theme is old fashioned and well … my house is of an old fashioned North American style since it was build in 1927.
When we first moved into the neighborhood we met a man who lived across the street at the corner house. He remembered the houses being build and in fact had lived in his house as a child! He moved away as a young adult but bought the house when it was available later in life. So he lived most of his life in that home!
We got a lot of stories about the old neighborhood and what the area used to be prior to housing going up. Basically it was farm land. I guess back then, this was the outskirts of the city, but these days it’s almost downtown!
The photo above was taken a couple of years ago when my husband and I, with the help of some friends, were putting a skylight in the roof of our enclosed porch. That’s why there’s a big hole in the roof … we were only half done the job at that point!
Our house is triple brick and the walls are plaster and lathe – with no insulation! Luckily the house was very well build and it seems warm enough even on very cold winter days.
BTW see our narrow driveway? Our car barely fits in it and it’s a compact car! Believe it or not that’s a shared driveway. We only own half of it! Luckily our older neighbor (Sofie my stalker) doesn’t have a car and doesn’t mind us hogging the driveway all the time. Otherwise we’d have to make a deal with the neighbors to use the driveway half the time or something. No wonder I sometimes think about getting a Smart Car … it would probably fit our half of the driveway easily!
