The Dexter House in 1937
THE DEXTER HOUSE Happy Friday, folks! Sorry for the radio silence as of late. We've been busy with planning for the lower unit and enjoying the nice weather. Mostly the later. After a long, gray winter we just can't let this sunshine go unappreciated!
Today I wanted to share a photo of the Dexter House from 1937. We think this house was built in 1905, so it's already 32 years old in this photo. I love all that ivy on the brick facade!
Fast forward to 2016 and the Dexter House looks a little different, but still pretty original. I miss the ivy and the original windows, but I still love this house. It's all charm and quaint and history and soooo unique for Seattle.
This front facade will see a lot of changes as we begin the lower unit renovation this summer, but we'll keep as much of the history in tact as possible.
What do you guys think of the brick facade of the Dexter House? Does it still feel relevant or do you think it's feeling a little...dingy/sad/old?
p.s. We're going to start the new fence and backyard renovation this weekend and it's going to look nothing like Ina Garten's garden. But a girl can dream ;)
p.p.s. This Spanish-style house in LA is sooooo good. Check it out on Lonny!
p.p.p.s. Bee keeping...yes! We've been trying to talk Nana into keeping bees at the farm for a couple years now. Can you imagine fresh honey on toast EVERY MORNING?!
