Our mid-mod vacation rental

This year we rented a part of an oceanfront house that was built as a single family home in 1961 (by Jacksonville architect: Taylor Hardwick). It was converted into three condos in 1979. We mostly rented it because of the architecture, and today the owner, knowing this, provided us with original pho...

We installed an IKEA kitchen with Abstract light grey fronts in 1996 and used it more than 10 years. When we sold it, it still looked like new. http://foto.arcor-online.net/palb/alben/41/1063141/400_6135386139626435.jpg http://foto.arcor-online.net/palb/alben/41/1063141/400_3861326530623337.jpg http...

I was at Ikea tonight (a jammed freeway and the lure of a $6.00 salmon dinner) For a budget, I liked a counter they may even stock. It was plain formica but thick, like 1 1/4 or so with a multi layer plywood edge. This one? http://foto.arcor-online.net/palb/alben/41/1063141/1280_3365353536376430.jp...

Two years later I have to dig up this thread because I found out about the architect of the first house - Darrell F. Fleeger. He built it for his family in 1962. It is for sale again and listed with architectureforsale for $900,000. Sales history on Zillow says 01/12/2004: $465,000 06/10/2003: $403,...

I always thought some of the facade that was still standing (and was so typical for the WTC) should have been kept for the on-site memorial. But that was probably not feasible plus nobody thought about it anyway in the aftermath of the desaster. Until this day I'm not able to watch relatively low fl...

As always, I'm amazed that someone with *that* kind of taste in furniture and decoration chose to buy such a house. Aren't there enough others that better match the "style"? This incongruousness (does that word exist?), which you can see in so many homes, really baffles me. Anyone out ther...
