In looking for a more economically appropriate place of dwelling this weekend (considering present circumstances), I happened upon these gems in the charming "village" of Port Townsend....
This one is in need of a new roof, but I'm attracted to the rather free-form & distressed nature of its design elements (I'm pictured here out on the patio):
The enchanting A-Frame motif going-on here appeals to my love of geometrics, but something about its location makes me worry about tidal waves and gale-force winds. I don't know -- perhaps I'm just a bit of a worrier. What do you think?!
The sturdiness and old world charm of this concrete-block structure -- the way it really feels rooted to its foundation -- has me going back for a second look. I'm concerned, though, that the front-yard landscaping might need a bit more than I'm willing to shell out for. But I'm going to give it some thought. (I'm thinking: xeriscape, low maintenance, no mowing.)
The best part, though, is that no matter which hut I eventually settle on, the realtor will throw in this dead car for free!!!!
All I can say is "Wow."
Just when you think life has booted you down to the lowest circle of hell, jewels like these come along and suddenly the world is a brighter place!
