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!


  1. I've always fancied the idea of a big airplane as a house. I've seen pictures of deserts filled with them in the US..... couldn't you get one of those?

  2. Or a gypsy THAT would be right up my alley.

  3. Cro, I may have to reconsider the driftwood option and move to looking at abandoned 747's....what a "first class" idea that is!

  4. mybabyjohn, ah yes, a Gypsy caravan. Something that rolls. Yet another brilliant idea. Apparently there are more options out there than I anticipated!

  5. And your humor is back! You are healing!!!

  6. I love you beach place...just my speed!

  7. Nice huts there, T. I do love ad hoc beach architecture!
