They Don’t Make ‘Em Like They Used To!

As I held an open house on Sunday in the area of Colonialtown South, I was admiring the character of the home and took a few photos.  It is amazing the detail and craftsmanship that went into the Bungalows built in the early to mid 1900s.  At the time, that was just how things were built; but there is just something about those architectural details that make you feel at home.

New construction cannot seem to re-create that feeling.  Even the most detailed custom home lacks that charm and history of an older home.  The creaking boards, the crack in the plaster, the tarnished door handles, the peeling paint – all of that history is what makes a little Bungalow so special.  I thought I would share a few photos of the detail that I am so captivated with.
