Re: The spirit of Lotta Livin'-

As for me, "The spirit of Lotta Livin'" should be to try to improve
things.

I do believe everyone here is doing their part to "improve things." And that was kinda my point. Maybe I should have said "you're preaching to the converted."

While I like to come here for inspiration, I have found that positive change comes when I conduct modernism tours for preservation groups, or take the time to educate my fellow real estate agents, developers and remodel contractors.

In fact, a blog post I did prevented a remodel contractor from neutralizing a 1964 original condition James Ream designed home. We need to inform the unaware...start this thread in a builders' forum.

Spreading the word-

Shannon- I'm really glad to see a Realtor doing what you're doing. We all
preach to the choir
with the hope that we'll all go out and spread the word.
You might enjoy seeing some of my architect efforts on Rain City Guide.

Sadly, the Frankenmansions of Vulgaria are creeping into even the most interesting of real estate websites:

http://www.architectureforsale.com/addr ... rty_ID=780

The terms "Frankenmansion" and "Vulgaria" are meant only in a light-hearted, positive, and friendly way.

It was only a matter of time.

Even with their exorbitant fees, I'm sure Architecture for Sale isn't getting by with 20 properties or less on their site.
