Hi I was wondering if you could tell me what home this is...it was built in 1923 right beside a train track.

Answer
Hi Michelle - thanks for your question!  I assume you want to know what style it is - it's been modified quite a bit, but it's a Bungalow form, in the Craftsman style (more or less).  Craftsman Bungalows were extremely common in the 1920s, there are many thousands of them all across the country!

Expertise

Ask me about all aspects of house, remodeling. , and room addition design and construction. Ask me about historic homes, renovation, and restoration. Ask me about materials and techniques, and about how you can get the best value for your design and construction dollar. Ask me how you can make your home a very special place. I can't, however, answer specific structural engineering questions in this forum - that's something you'll need on-site observation for.

Experience

I own a full-service residential architectural firm, and have been designing custom homes, remodelings, and room additions across the country since 1983.
