message 2: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments I can't tell architectural styles from one another outside of Chicago bungalow, which I recognize. I am, however, going to see a Frank Lloyd Wright exhibit tomorrow at the members preview at the Milwaukee Art Museum:

Something like this would be good. I want lots of windows and high ceilings.

Aynge (ayngemac) | 1202 comments #5 looks like an earthquake hit and it collapsed. The middle red one in #7 is a house???

I love how the Mini Cooper is parked right out front off the smallest house.

Yes, nice touch.


message 15: by [deleted user] (new)

Are you trying to tell us you will live in anything LG, as long as it has a roof walls and windows? At least I think that's what each of those houses have in common.


message 16: by Lobstergirl, el principe (new)

Lobstergirl | 24154 comments Mod
No, I don't think I'd want to live in one of these.

The Rebecca Nurse Homestead, Danvers, MA, 1678. Nurse was hanged for being a witch, at age 71, in 1692 and secretly buried on the property.



message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

Was she concidered to be a witch because she lived so long?

I am unable to see the picture in msg 18.

No, because several young girls went into convulsive fits in her presence, or under her influence, or something.

Msg 18 is just a big development of closely-set tract houses near Las Vegas which all look alike.

Lafayette House, 1731, Marblehead Mass. I like the color and the chunk taken out of the house at bottom left.

Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) I like Tuscan/Mediterranean style homes. Also Spanish style homes, but not the adobe ones. More of the ranch ones with a lot of ironwork and stucco.

#32 vanished on me. It was an interesting apartment building.


message 36: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca White (rebecca_white) | 1028 comments There are so many lovely houses above, and one of my problems is that I think so many are wonderful in their own way I have a hard time deciding.

I've always had kind of a fantasy, though, of living in a Victorian house that looks haunted. I mean, pretty fixed-up Victorians, yeah, yeah, yeah...but I want the run-down, paint peeling, leaf-covered, stay away from that crazy woman kind.

Or a Tuscan villa. Either one.

janine | 7715 comments my billionaire uncle is paying for the house, right?



[image error]

these two are both pretty close to where i grew up, but they'll NEVER be for sale.


message 38: by janine (last edited Feb 11, 2011 05:53AM) (new)

janine | 7715 comments but this one is for sale for half a million i think, and has a pretty big garden. downside: i'll be living on the same street as my parents.

message 42: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments I like farmhouses and old Victorians, places with history and character. My house was built in 1919.

Sarah | 13815 comments OK, those are pretty awesome.

So are these, in Turkey.

Jammies Treehouse code? Bureaucracy at its finest.

Ko, those are so cool! I'm reading about earthship houses right now.


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments Beach cottage with lots of windows and hardwood floors.


message 47: by Aynge (new)

Aynge (ayngemac) | 1202 comments *sigh*

That reminds me of how much I wanted a tree house as a kid. Never happened. But I did go to my cousin's house and he had one. After sitting in it for five minutes, I got bored and left.

I really like the clean simplicity of modern architecture, but it's hard to find something that isn't cold. I'd want a lot of technology and light but not too much glass.


message 48: by janine (new)

janine | 7715 comments building the tree house is the fun part, even if it looks like crap.

Oh! I was v. impressed with the Naumkeag estate in the Stockbridge/Berkshires area. I could've spent my entire summer camping out in the gardens. They probably would've kicked me off the property, though.
