Here are a few action shots of the traditional wood storm windows we recently made and installed. We usually like to install stays that also lock, which would eliminate the need for the extra hardware here. Due to an abnormally thin blind stop we had to go a different route. Instead we went with some budget minded cabinet stays. We also added retaining clips about midway up to help snug the window against the blind stop. This also will prevent the window from wanting to bow out in the middle over time. There is a hook and eye installed at the bottom for further security. #windowrestoration #woodwindows #woodworking #oldhouses #architecturaldetails
Custom closet shelves made out of 100+ year old salvaged rough cut wood from an old barn. My wife's new office project. Next I'm building a custom desk. #Follow for more custom projects here at the farm. * * * #farm #farmhouse #farmhouseliving #homeoffice #customfurniture #homerenovations #homedecor #oldwood #barnwood #woodworking #oldwood #customshelving #oldhouses #antique #vintage #craftsman #homeprojects #farmhouseliving #tools #stanleytools #build

The (newly posted) signs say "NO PARKING" and also "NO TRESPASSING". In order to take these photos I both parked and trespassed. . . . #abandoned #derelict #barbados #caribbean #bajanarchitecture #caribbeanarchitecture #traditionalarchitecture #oldhouses

The carved architecture of this place is yet so alive and I happen to see and feel it. History is boring in books but trust me I felt India had a great one. Patan has a lot in it. . . . #travelgoals #traveldiaries #traveller #instacheckin #patan #gujrat #woodcarving #oldhouses #pood #poser #explore #exploring #vibes #goodtime #igers #photography #instagram
We have bugs. We live in an old house and they don’t scare me anymore and I figure it’s like having nature inside with us. Anyway, there was an American cockroach on my ceiling and so I got the broom to knock it down, well, I smacked it instead, I have no idea where it went and I smudged it’s blood on my ceiling as a warning to its brothers. Then I went to wash my hands and this tiny adorable spiders was doing it’s best to get away from the bug smashing asshole. To be fair roaches are just nasty. Spiders I have no issue with.
Oh Stockholm, you pretty little thing.... ❤️ Would not think twice about moving here. Could stroll these beautiful narrow streets of the old town for days on end. Ah yes, true love it is 😍
When we hear the word ‘charm’ in real estate, it’s usually referring to details like this gorgeous doorknob. For some reason, charming details like this have been lost to the past. We don’t see stuff like this in houses built after the 1960’s for the most part. Seriously. Go into any hardware store or building materials box. Look at the doorknobs. They range from boring to boring-er. Owning and old house comes with lots of charm (they just don’t make ‘em like they used to!) but sometimes lots of big surprises and hefty expenses with repairs and maintenance. What say you? Is the charm worth the work? Would you love an old charmer? #oldhouses #thisoldhouse #charming #oldschool #theyjustdontmakeemliketheyusedto #minneapolis #stpaul #historichomes #doorknob #twincities #houseyhouse #antique #brickandbanisterrealestateco
This over 120 years old building Sabiha Hanım Köşkü iş located in coast of Kadiköy, next to Marmara sea in Caddebosta park road. The Bigger building next door Ragıp Pasa Mansion has been repaired, but what will happen to this. Tämä yli 120 vuotias talovanhus Sabiha Hanım Köşkü sijaitsee Kadıköyn rantabulevardilla Marmara meren rannalla Caddebosta puistossa. Vieressä oleva isompi huvila Ragıp Paşa on jo korjattu, mutta tämän kanssa olisi jo kiire! . . #kadiköy #istanbul #mansion #oldhouses #renovation #turkey #caddebosta #foreignerinistanbul #walkings #decemberinturkey #woodenhouse
There was a time when windows were more than functional, when craftsmanship was everything. I swear I can see a young girl leaning out of one of those upper windows to wave at her friends. I see the little desk in her room with her diary neatly placed on it. I see the hooks on the back of her door with her nightgown hanging from it and a candle holder on her bedside table. Unlike new houses, old ones tell stories.... Also..... I obviously see dead people lol! . #doorsworldwide #doorsondoors #doorsandwindows_greatshots #doorsandwindowsoftheworld #windowsanddoors #windows #facadelovers #facadelover #oldhouses #oldhouselove #oldhousecharm #architecture #archi_ologie #architecturephotography #montrealpics #streetsof514 #montrealmoments #montreality #montrealcity #montreal_gallery #quebecoriginal #canadagram #mycanada #canada_photolovers #canada

Exceptional -- there's no other word for this home!⠀ ⠀ ($3,195,000 / Long Beach, CA)⠀ -⠀ From the listing: With its rich, warm skin of cedar shingles, the Bixby Ranch House is an example of the “Shingle” style of architecture. This very American genre eschewed Victoriana’s verticality and ornate pastels. Instead, similar to Craftsman ideals, Shingle architecture emphasized simplicity and “honest” materials such as stone, wood, and brick. However, this humility was combined with a sophisticated aesthetic that strove for the sense of a house as one continuous volume whose various shapes, dormers, and bay windows were all unified by that taut shingle sheathing. Mostly seen in the late 19th century East Coast seaside houses of rich industrialists, finding an expression of that style in Southern California is very rare. But perhaps it should come as no surprise. Ernest Coxhead (1863 – 1933) was known for his highly personal interpretations based on the rustic, romantic ideals of the Arts and Crafts movement and his own memories of a pastoral, picturesque England. What’s even more exciting, Coxhead’s fearless exuberance in combining elements from other styles to add functionality or interest—such as an American Colonial Revival gambrel roof; the alternating curved and triangular pedimented dormer windows, straight out of Italian Renaissance and the Medici family circa 1550; or the wooden spiral “Solomonic” columns from the Byzantine era that flank an imposing fireplace—is fully on display here.⠀ -⠀ ⠀ #circaoldhouses #oldhouses #dreamhouse @deasypenner

Our two front doors are oddly shaped and have these portal-like windows to the world. We’ve talked about replacing them so we can get more light into the front of the farmhouse. But two new custom front doors are out of reach for us just now. ... On days like today, when a cold has slowed me way down and all I want is warmth, I’m grateful for the cozy front rooms that were designed to keep heat in. ... Plus, this peek at the snowy farmyard makes this place feel even more magical. ... May you find portals to magic everywhere you look. ... ... #farmhouse #frontdoor #oldhouselove #oldhouses #snow #oldhouse #oldhouselife #oldhouselovers #farmhousechristmas #farm365 #farmliving
Heres what we found!!! We uncovered a beautiful brick chimney in the kitchen. It’s not in use anymore but it sure will look amazing! #mydad #oldhouses #fixerupper #renovation #cottage #kitchens #creativity #thisismyhouse #staytuned

This is the third floor of the warehouse. To get here you have to climb through temporary makeshift planks working as stairs. There is no railing and one might just topple three stories down, if not careful. But as wonderfully random this city is, people stay here and there are godowns of plastic which is heavily combustible. Can you spot the Second Hooghly Bridge in the backdrop? . . . . . . . . . . #kolkatagram #calcuttadiaries #desidiaries #indiagram #ig_india #calcuttacacophony #calcuttawalks #kolkata_diaries #kolkataphotography #amarkolkata #bengal_ig #bengal_undiscovered #oldhouses #kolkatablogger #travelaroundtheworld #travelgram #thekolkatabuzz #dd_kolkata #indiaclicks #incredibleindia #storiesofindia #storiesofkolkata #kolkata_calcutta_city #thisiskolkata #kolkata_igers #india_undiscovered #bbctravel #sokolkata #calcutta_minimalism #indiapictures

Old colored houses with splashes of snow atop. Do you feel the cold through the lens ? 'Cause it sure already is freezing hell over here for the last few days / weeks 😂🥶
