I bought this church door from #kerrasjeffery a dozen years ago, imagining it eventually would open onto an impressive wine collection. Instead, freshly sanded and painted, it will be a focal feature leading to my #smallhouse utility room #savingcliffordshouse #deserve2preserve

Who wouldn’t want to come home to this historic home and zinnia garden in Greensboro NC

Simplistic two-flat in the 4700 block of N. Ashland in the Ravenswood/Uptown area. The decorations above the cornice are especially unique; I’ve never seen those before. They look like cutouts from a gable fence.

// we are fourty weeks and two days pregnant today and still waiting for our little bundle to make their arrival! Baby won't be sleeping in the nursery for a while but it's certainly all ready! I was walking past after putting addie down and loved the evening light pouring through our new window. #letterstobabyhanley

I pulled a shot from my Thornhurst catalog for the 2019 @indianalandmarks #inmodernlove #indianamodern contest. The Thornhurst Addition in Carmel, Indiana was designed and developed by Avriel Shull, a local self-taught architect. The houses were constructed from 1956-1971. It was listed in the NRHP in 2010. #historicarchitecture #oldhouse #indianaarchitecture #hoosierarchitecture #historicindianaarchitecture #archi_ologie #archilovers #thisoldhouse #oldhouselove #architecturephotography #deserve2preserve #brickstory #architecturelovers #thisplacematters #avrielshull #thornhurstcarmel #carmelindiana

Originally constructed during the Second World War for use by the @britisharmy while constructing dams in Northern Ontario, this bridge was acquired by the Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario following the war's end. In 1952, it was one of two bridges that were installed across Lake Shore Boulevard for pedestrian traffic from @explaceto to the waterfront; the second was removed when @ontarioplace was developed. Bailey bridges are portable, temporary, easily assembled bridges used mostly for military purposes. This bridge, renovated in 1998, is one of two Bailey Bridges in the city, and is the only one remaining in the old City of Toronto. Lake Shore Boulevard West Bailey Bridge.

Massive mounds of leather rot away inside this decrepit decaying gymnasium.

The Thursby House located at Blue Springs State Park in Orange City, Florida was constructed in 1872. The house was once a two-story structure built from three kinds of center-cut pine that had been milled in Savannah, Ga., and transported by boat to the site. Louis P. Thursby and his family settled on the inlet to Blue Springs, on the St. Johns river in 1856. Shortly after his arrival, he constructed one of the first steamboat landings and planted one of the first orange groves on the upper St. Johns River. His first residence was a log cabin that he built. Thursby's son added a third story and kitchen wing in 1900, which is still standing today.[1] A Cypress water tank stood near the Northeast corner of the house. The tank has recently been recently removed from its supports. The Louis P. Thursby House is a historic home in Orange City, Florida, United States. It is located inside Blue Spring State Park. On May 11, 2000, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. Text by Wiki

Good Thursday morning! Ever wanted to live in a gorgeous, opulent villa, but can’t afford to spend millions? Here is a really cool opportunity to own TWO apartments in a magnificent Italian villa near Florence, Italy! $388,414 The apartments are in need of total renovation but they are architecturally stunning, with enormous original frescoes stretching across walls and ceilings. The photos almost make it feel like you are living in a museum – with the stunning scale of the windows and quality of the 18th century construction. Interior photos include CGI renderings of the completed renovations to help you imagine the amazing potential. The view across the manicured formal gardens out to rolling hills and charming village – absolutely beautiful! From a financial perspective, these properties would be excellent investments as well! 🌿🗝 🌿 Tap link in bio to view the listing and more photos! 🌿🗝🌿

#tbt When we removed the mid century wrought iron railings on the front porch. Someday those spider loving posts will be replaced with wood columns. And we are also considering removing the brick & cement porch & steps & replacing it with wood. Originally the entire front and back of depot had a wood platform for passengers - but it was removed decades ago to make the structure more “house like”. • • • #taylortraindepot #edenton #edentonnc #historicedenton #historicdistrict #historicbuilding #historichome #historichouse #historicrestoration #historicpreservation #historicrenovation #thisoldhouse #deserve2preserve #fixerupper #myvintagehome #nchistory #vintagehome #restoration #preservation #trainstation #railwaystation #railroadhistory

This gorgeous Second Empire style home in Hastings was built for William Thompson in 1880. Thompson served as vice-president of the German American Bank in Hastings, co-owned a sawmill, operated a door and sash factory, and owned several acres of farmland in Dakota County. His connections with woodworkers at his door and sash factory was reflected in the exquisite woodwork throughout the interior of the house. Outside, an ornate mansard roof with scalloped wood shingles towers above its red brick walls. In 1929, Dr. Herman Fasbender, Sr. purchased the home and remodeled it to use as a new location of St. Raphael Hospital. After the new Regina Memorial Hospital opened in Hastings in 1953, St. Raphael’s closed and the building was converted into apartments. The mansion was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, and in 1979, Pam and Dick Thorsen purchased the home and converted it into one of the most popular bed and breakfasts in the state. The Thorsen's completed extensive renovations in 2008 in the mansion that turned the bed and breakfast into vacation/corporate condo rentals. Sadly, a fire damaged the building in December, 2017. Pam and Dick are now looking for someone to purchase the property (MLS# 5267657) and carry the historic property forward. . . . #forgottenmn #deserve2preserve #archi_ologie #mansardmonday #exploremnhistory #theamericanhome #historichomesofminnesota #deserve2preserve #nationalregisterofhistoricplaces #preservationmatters #mnhistory #onlyinmn #visithastingsmn #frenchsecondempire #minnesota

North Avondale is such a stunning neighborhood for big old beautiful homes. . This was somewhat recently listed for a half million. Maybe a lot, but... also not really. Not when you see what shlock that same money gets you in a new suburb/exurb. But, also last purchased in 2014 for $72k. That sharp spike represents substantial stabilization work, a discounted purchase price (was REO), and an upward market. And maybe some wishes and dreams. 😉 . . . . #firmitasutilitasvenustas #oldhouse #architecture #design #travel #archigram #city #theamericanhome #architecturephotography #street #urban #explore #historichouses #historicpreservation #igerscincinnati #queencity #housesofinstagram #deserve2preserve #preservethenati #thisplacematters #oldhouselove #wherepigsfly #porkopolis #513_cincinnati #makecincyyours #flemishgable #americancastle #gildedagemansion #houseporn #brickstory

Ruffles. Orangeville, Ontario. Love the gingerbread trim on this old beauty! The black, yellow and orange is so striking together! This home was constructed by James McIntyre Hogg all in the Gothic Revival style. 43 Zina, built in 1873, has the original footprint but was modified in 1920 to the Home Smith style popular in larger cities at the time. Hogg constructed 41 Zina in 1875 and sold it to Alex McGowen, a merchant. It has the same floor plan but with a rectangular front bay. Hogg built 45 Zina Street in 1877 for H. Wiley. His wife, Jane, was the inventor of a boiler lid called the “pastugeta” for which she was awarded the bronze medal at the Toronto Exhibition in 1906. Of the three, 45 Zina is in the most original condition and is a more elaborate version of the previous two houses Hogg built. Note the buff brick banding, the decorative bargeboard, the simple lancet window in the additional front gable and the angled bay. The porch has been altered, probably after 1920. The short brick piers with squared columns reflect Edwardian Classicism common at that time. • • • • • • • #orangevilleontario #architectureporn #canada #victorianhouses #houseportrait #victorianarchitecture #oldhousecharm #housestalker #urbanexplorer #beautifulhouseoldandnew #architecturelovers #victoriancottage #architecturephotography #oldhouselove #arkitektur #urbanexploration #architecture_hunter #archi_ologie #oldhome #houseporn #deserve2preserve #mansardmonday #historichome #houses_ofthe_world #casasecasarios #mansion #architecture #historicpreservation #la_houses

Van Vlack House The first European settler of the area, Aaron Van Vlack, built this house around 1741. The house would be added onto in 1795 and 1882 and later become a restaurant and inn. Today, it lives on nicely preserved as a mental health service facility.

On a recent trip to Buffalo to tour the impressively restored Martin House Complex (I may share my photos of that home one day) we took the time to stop by another FLW-designed home in the area. • • • William Heath was the eventual Vice President of the Larkin Company in Buffalo. The administration building for Larkin Co. (razed in 1950) was also designed by #flw as his first major commercial project, but I digress. Built in 1904-1905, the Heath House is considered a precursor to the UNESCO world heritage site #robiehouse, due to their similar narrow lots. The Heath House is a great example of Wright's Prairie-Style design, and his ability to work with the surrounding area and landscapes. Typical of these homes, the front door is more or less hidden, with the living room rising above street level for an extra measure of privacy. This 7 bedroom home has a master suite with windows on three sides, giving a 270° view of the Soldier's Place traffic circle, and beautiful neighborhood the house sits within. Some time in 1911 the stable was replaced by a garage, and later owners would convert the servants quarters into a Doctors office. The structure is still a privately owned residential home. • • • #beautifuloldhomes #oldhome #home #oldhouse #house #prettyoldhouse #mansion #oldmansion #architecture #residentialarchitecture #americanarchitecture #archi_ologie #deservetopreserve #deserve2preserve #20thcenturyarchitecture #architecturelover #prairiestyle #prairieschool #photo #photography #history #ipulledoverforthis #oldhouselove #explore #buffalo #newyork #ny #franklloydwright

Down the road

Repost from @repurpose_savannah "It is with great pride that we announce the publication of our latest project history, the Webb House, which can be found at www.repurposesavannah.org/webbhouse. Get to know the residents that called the Webb House home and glimpse the early life of the mansion through newspaper clippings, personal stories, and beautiful architectural renderings drawn by our staff. Experience the transformation from deconstruction to rehab project. This has been a labor of love in partnership with the project owner, Historic Savannah Foundation. Join in our mission to deepen the conversation at the end of a structure's life, and broaden the field of preservation! Built in 1902 by Richard Webb Jr. and Margaret Webb, this Free-classic Queen Ann style home experienced years of neglect and a tragic fire. Many thought it was a total loss. The Historic Savannah Foundation, unwilling to see it that way, hired us to deconstruct and thoroughly document the surviving structure. Thanks to their open minds and our intensive labor, along with many key partners in Savannah, we uncovered a surprise... the Webb House can be saved! We invite you to enjoy the story and share our passion for Savannah's local history. Are you the face of the next critical phase for the Webb House?” 》learn more at the link in @repurpose_savannah bio》 #savethewebbhouse #repurposesavannah #emergentstructures

🏛 The northernmost country house in Romania - the Balș manor in Darabani. Built around 1830 by Theodor Balș, a key political figure in Moldavian history, the manor now houses the town #library and the Museum of the North, a local #museum organized by the local community. Totally worth a visit 🤩🕰🗝📜

#deserve2preserve the A. C. Lowell house. Fort Bidwell, CA. The house is historically important and needs to be saved.

Slide to see the stages of #shousugiban on my cedar fence. I burned it, scraped off the char, and finished with #penofin Brazilian rosewood oil, (clear) after some help from @preszlerwoodshop with some helpful advice! This fence should hopefully outlast me! Got all this done today along with moving the rock wall back into place. I’m beat! 👍👍

So, I just got word today that this bungalow will be FOR SALE soon! It’s such a cool house guys! I’ve been inside and it has a really neat layout, with a HUGE attic. It needs a bit of love... but it’s in pretty good shape.

I just love how these vintage advertisements turned out! 😍 . Both of these are early 1900s 😧 . I wanted to use reclaimed wood and not new to match the look and feel of these advertisements. I had recently found some parts of a piece of furniture in an 1800s barn. I even left the square nails to give it more character and uniqueness. 👍 . These are available now in my shop!

The Mindenville House disassembly is moving along pretty quickly. This is the second floor of the back ell, over the rooms that allowed for “extra floor ventilation” if you are following along 😉. Our architect has been on site, and is onboard with our idea of vaulting the back ell to expose the upper windows to the first floor living space! Not a very livable second floor, so this will bring a bit of drama to the kitchen and other rooms planned for that section of the house. Happy with the progress so far! #oldhouselove #deserve2preserve #historicpreservation #archi_ologie #thisoldhouse #kevinoconnortoh #chipgaines #fixerupper #greatnortherncatskills

hello! This is your friendly neighborhood Tchoup Coast, awakening from an instagram hiatus. Since I’m no longer in New Orleans (😭+☺️), I had a bit of a name change. I’m not really sure where this account is going at the moment, since, my favorite parts of the historic architecture realm are kind of gone now. San Francisco certainly has a number of older houses, but they really only go back to the early 1900s versus the more robust timeline from New Orleans. It took me quite a while to realize this and it’s why I kind of stepped away. Also, my life is slightly more fast-paced as I get this real estate biz off the ground (who knew learning a whole new market could be so time consuming 😅). Anyway, I miss those who I connected with frequently here and am trying to figure out where I’ll go from here, as I miss this community in general and how inspiring it was. So! Here’s my update. ☀️ I hope your summer has been cool enough and moved slowly enough for your liking.

Great afternoon brainstorming with Mejay Gula and @tenderhouseproject . How would you repurpose Chicago’s bridge houses? Also pictures of the beautiful bridge house at Washington #bridgehouses #bridgetender #deserve2preserve #historic #archi_ologie

Buildings as beautiful as this one were seen for a long time as a scar in Indonesia’s history. However, rather than removing it, the changing attitudes here have resulted in a much more wholesome attitude to coming to terms. The best thing to do with any scar is to own it, and make it beautiful. This building was once a Dutch credit bureau, and is now being converted into a local arts/cultural center. Architecturally, the details are superb: a remotely cathedral-esque tower system with straight modern lines consistent with Indonesian architecture. I am a fan! #architecture #jakarta #indonesia #kotatua #deserve2preserve #thisplacematters #oldhouselove

↔️Swipe through to see what this house looks like today. This old house and barn are one of my favorite pairs in all of Georgia, but it breaks my heart to see how far she’s fallen. The images where the trees are barren are from 2011 the more recent images were taken in 2018. I wonder if there will be anything left the next time I visit.

Super cute in-town #farmhouse. No way around it, #woodsiding has the most character if you’re dressing your stick framed house.

Just above the once thriving town of Sims, North Dakota, sits this abandoned homestead. In 1878, when N.P.R.R. was extending their railroad bed, a vein of coal was discovered 35 miles west of Mandan. With coal and spring water in the area, the railroad decided to build a side track and station there. The area was originally called Carbon, for the Carbon Pressed Brick & Lime Company. It was officially named Sims after George V. Sims, chief clerk in the executive office of the railroad in New York. A coal mine was opened on July 5th, 1879, for the N. P. Coal Company by Charles W. Thompson. The next year, the post office was established. The town was platted in 1883 by N.P.R.R. surveyors. The town only thrived for about 30 years. #raw_abandoned #rural_houses #trb_rurex #renegade_rural #renegade_abandoned #style_and_decay #ruralruins #ruralexposures #trb_rural #trb_abandoned #rurexposures #ruralexploration #discarded_butnot_forgotten #deserve2preserve #abandonedplaces #abandoned #abandon_seekers_ #abandoned_junkies #abandonedbuilding #rsa_rural #rural #rurallife #ruralphotography #rural_love #backroad_visions #ipulledoverforthis #hdr_country #country_features #raw_country
