Efficient and charming little cottage offered by Sears & Roebuck. The kit would cost you $579 in 1913, although I suspect this subdued Victorian cottage is a retread of an earlier model. The estimated total cost to build with labor, kit, (plus plaster brick and cement, which is not included) was approximately $1100. I'll take 3! 💰💰💰 #floorplansofthepast
Here's a nice little panorama of Hillrise Cottage - you can actually see the east wing from this angle! Sounds grand, doesn't it? You can also catch glimpses of the tree-lined dam down the bottom of the hill on the right. How's the serenity...
Our dam is so full right now - I bet the yabbies are stoked! This is our dog's favourite spot on the property (6 acres to explore and he always comes back to the cottage soaking wet!). Pooches are very welcome at Hillrise. Link for bookings in profile.
Before / After... We didn't need to do much to freshen up the cottage - a lick of paint, some nice lights and curtains and a good scrub and the old gal is like new! The kitchen could do with a makeover next, but at least we have a coffee machine now - that's the most important thing. Mmmmmm, coffee... ☕️
Getting pumped to lead my 14th WalkingTown DC 'Hidden Gems of S.E.' 🚶🏻♀️tour of Hillcrest, on Sun. 9/24 ⏰10am. 🆓We'll go inside TWO houses. Featured: the 1934 Colonial Revival 🏠built by pioneering 📡radar and 📻radio developer 🔬Dr. Louis A. Gebhard (who kept a meticulous archive 🗂of the home). ➕we'll again visit last year's featured house: the historic "Dr. Fealey House" - the 1935 #aztecdeco 🏜#artdeco masterpiece ('swipe left' for photo!) by #polychrome innovator #johnjosephearley (known for #meridianhillpark , #dumbartonbridge & #silverspring Deco District)❗️The home is featured in the new book #capitolhouses by historian #jamesmgoode 🔍 Along the route you also will see exteriors ranging from #kithome#searshouse to houses designed by noted #washingtondc architects: A.H.

Narrabeen job currently in progress. It seems like we pick only the windy days for roof sheeting. 50km/h winds saw the sheets wanting to fly over to collaroy! As usual, teamwork and commitment from the team saw the sheets layed on schedule 👊
Introducing the sexiest kit home ever! In 2014, Danish pedal bin manufacturer Vipp unveiled their most ambitious product yet: Vipp Shelter which launched as a fully integrated and all inclusive retreat that is built, delivered and installed in just over 6 months. Everything is included, from the appliances, feature lighting and furniture to the cutlery, towels and bedding. So clever and infinitely stylish. As seen on Yellowtrace. #prefabricated#vipp#vippshelter#architecture#interiordesign#danishdesign#kithome#mrmitchell_interiors @yellowtrace

Kick back and relax knowing that being a #FactoryBuilt home and not a #KitHome , a #UniplanHome affords you the chance to acquire a bank loan or government housing grant as they are an investment with you for life! RG:@insideoutmag
