Atomic Ranch features BH&Gs 2809-A, like ours!

Postby robbhouston » Fri Feb 22, 2013 11:41 am

Hey all,

Just received my Spring 2013 issue of Atomic Ranch magazine. There's a feature on a Seattle neighborhood called Surrey Downs that has several homes based on a Better Homes & Gardens design (the Five Star Plan No. 2809-A, Architects Omer L. Mithun & Harold J. Nesland). In fact, the original 2809-A featured in the Sept. 1958 issue of BH&Gs is in that neighborhood. Still beautifully in it's original condition.

The author of the piece and I have corresponded for a couple of years now. We both live in the same BH&G 2809-A design homes, he in Seattle and my wife & I in Nashville. We've had fun exchanging pictures and stories. He'd told me about the article, and I was so pleased to see it in this issue. Great piece and excellent photos!

Here's a related thread about that neighborhood...

I actually email the editor over at AR to praise the article, and to remind her that our own 2809-A appeared in the Fall 2008 issue of Atomic Ranch, on the "Home Page"....

Nice! My home is also a BH&G plan: one of the "Better Homes for All America." I have yet to run across another one like it. Several years back I was in a retro store that was going out of business and my hubby and I sat down and paged through Every. Single. Copy. of BH&G that they had, just hoping to find our house plan. No such luck. It's very cool that you've made the connection with the Seattle folks.
