Denver Historic

Look what I found! Last summer, Denver Historic hosted a tour of Hilltop Mid-Mod houses. We were in a bit of a rush with a cranky and sleepy toddler…and we had just started remodeling our house. I already did blog posts of the other three houses that we saw on the tour. But, I forgot […]

This Usonian house was designed by Victor Horbein and it is huge! It’s loaded with wood on the walls, wood on the ceiling, wood everywhere. I got […]


The Francis House was our first stop on the house tour. Instad of making slideshows, I’m going to just link to the first pic in my  Flickr stream.
