my house (circa 1931)
I adore my little Storybook home. My neighborhood is full of them....
here are a few examples of some of my neighbor's homes....
a charming cottage (circa 1934)
the house I almost bought (circa 1929) but glad I didn't...cause I love mine so much
my friend, Deidra's house (circa 1929)
As I was saying...I adore my Storybook home but sometimes I fantasize about what I would build if there was one empty lot still available in my neighborhood or heaven forbid my home got totally blown away in a tornado.
I should never have said that....
I do NOT want my home to get blown away!
(knock on wood)
Anyway, I sometimes fantasize about building one of these storybook homes by this incredible company just for fun.
They sell books of their plans. Most builders don't get the right proportion or details when designing these type of homes. But these are just delightful and just right.
(as Goldilocks would say)
Here are just two examples of their wonderful designs.
Go to their website www.storybookhomes.biz to view more. They are absolutely charming.
I've mentioned before the book Storybook Style that I found to be a great resource for learning about Storybook homes.
find it at Amazon.com
and there is also a website dedicated to Storybook Style...it's called...
webmaster, John Robert Marlow explores Storybook Style and includes photos of Storybook homes in California.
Here are a few of them...
Living in one of these homes would definitely mean...
living happily ever after
"living happily ever after"
