As mentioned in the past, I have a fascination with old craftsman style houses. The other day I ran across a site called Antique Home.org that has scans of tons of old home catalogs from the early 1900′s through the 1960′s. (Talk about a way to waste a couple of hours on a hot Saturday sitting indoors in the air conditioning trying not to melt away…but I digress.) These old images and plans made me long for building my own dream home and modifying it just for lil ole us. Not that that will be happening anytime in the near future, but it was fun to dream. Anyways, out of all the ones I looked at…the one I thought was just about perfect (with some slilght interior wall re-configuration) was this simple craftsman style.
It’s a 1920′s craftsman called the “Avon” built by Bennett “Better-built” Homes. It’s straightforward in it’s design, and probably not what you thought I’d say was my dream home, right?! Look through the Antique Home website, and tell me if you have any dream home’s of your own!
