Thanks to Prince of Petworth

In the last few hours, I have received three emails from friends telling me my house was featured as “house of the day” on a local blog with which I don’t think I have any connection.
It’s gratifying that someone liked a house I’ve been working on — but it’s even more interesting that three people who don’t know each other all randomly ran across this local blog. It’s yet another confirmation that blogs are becoming standard in people’s lives.
Thanks Prince of Petworth.

    Very nice job. Reflects the mind and personality evident in The Washington Note.


  2. Jim Castleman says:

    I don’t know Steve, I kinda liked door of the day just as much.


  3. Mavis says:

    Do your dogs like the house?


  4. Spunkmeyer says:

    The interior and exterior were done tastefully in recent years. They
    retain their original character and still function well as a single unit.


  5. DonS says:

    I’ve got a feeling Steve, or predecessor, blew out the whole inside. This was no half assed merging of “duplexes”.
    As to porches and kitchens, the original houses (Federal flat fronts) maybe/probably had kitchen porches out the back. No doubt they were gone many decades ago. The Dupont Circle area has been upscale since before my time in DC, i.e., before the 60’s.

    PS Just noticed the fence. Looks great!


  7. Big Dog Bill says:

    Hmmm… the only car that might look better out front, would be a lil’ weenie! The yellow band would really compliment that blue. 🙂


  8. questions says:

    So did you have to pull out the extra kitchen, or was that done already? There are funny features in joined duplexes!


  9. JenS says:

    I’ve walked by this house a few times on my way to work. It is one of my favorites in the city. Nicely done!


  10. DonS says:

    Ahhhhh, that makes sense, given the proportions, which appear wider than your typical D.C. row house. Looking hard I can (think I can) actually see the different brick face.


  11. Steve Clemons says:

    The truck gets surprisingly good gas mileage, for a truck — about
    30 mpg.
    DonS — I’ve never seen porches like ours in DC…This house was
    actually the product of two smaller row houses that were merged.


  12. DonS says:

    I don’t guess the porches are original. At least I don’t remember many such configurations.


  13. WigWag says:

    Well, I hope they’re treating you well at the New American Foundation. With the price of gas these days, filling up that truck can’t be cheap.


  14. Steve Clemons says:

    WigWag — not my car. I have a GMC Sonoma Truck. I’m constantly moving plants, dirt, rocks, stuff around. But yes, the house is mine.


  15. WigWag says:

    Nice house; really nice car out front. Things must be good at the New American Foundation.
    Congratulations, man!

    This is the house you were redoing?
    Nice job!
    Why don’t you post some pictures of your interior work for us.
