While packing this past week, I’ve stumbled across a number of long lost (including lost from memory) items as well as bizarre ephemera. Sometimes I feel like I’m conducting an archeological dig, carefully dusting off historical discoveries. One of the bizarre items I found was the above note written back when my bride-to-be and I were in the market for our first house some 20 years ago. Included on the list:
Places for plants
Big bathroom with 3-D mirrors
Little lake by the little swing
Lots of windows
Two cat doors
No onions in the garden
Some of these things are still on our list…
The dining room is now hey-uge: there’s room, I reckon, for a buffet or buffets. And it definitely increases space off the side patio. Oh look: There’s the horno (the circle near the AC units). According to The Architect’s contacts at the city, the horno can be placed in the easement. That deserve’s a hip-hip-hooray!
Update (April 9, 2013):
The Architectural Record recently posted some photos of this house. A couple are below, and here is the link to read the article and see more photos.
Dorothy Parker wrote about attending a party in New York and the home having the palette of freshly polished steel and sawdust. Like this kitchen. Kind of timeless, really. Like Dot.
