11 Landers – Project 11

This house is a little harder to place in architectural style. It has elements from a few different periods and some that seem made up. The front gable is of a proportion I haven’t seen before. It’s a little bit of dutch-farmhouse meets early gambrel. The gambrel breaks so high in the roofline, it reminds me of really old dutch buildings….like in the Netherlands. We’ll see what the trim details and the shadows tell us when strip the layer of asbestos shingles and then probably other layers that cover the original skin.

Update July 2015: We are getting close to finishing this one. The addition is built and plastered. The interior trim is almost finished and the baths/kitchens are getting installed. The winter was tough on all of us but we have great neighbors and the summer has been as good as the winter was bad. I’ll start posting pics in the next few weeks and we will probably be ready to sell by mid September. All three units will be roughly the same. 6 rooms, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and about 1300 sq ft. It will be a really nice place to live.
