Something is not quite right about this Buckeye, Arizona kitchen.  [click on photo to expand]

The flooring is not level. The cabinets were not installed level. An optical illusion? Or bad photography?

Construction Photos

December 12th, 2013 · 6 Comments

We’ve got a real treat for you today.  It’s not often we see vintage photos of homes along with the current photos, especially with construction workers.  The sellers of this 1941 Gilbert, Arizona home were kind enough to include construction photos.  They bought it in 1965 and recently sold it 48 years later.

Their house is on the left, as seen in February 1966.

They expanded the front room in 1966.  You can see the worker on the right.

The finished addition.

Building the fireplace back then.

It’s no wonder the house had multiple offers.  It isn’t a fancy house and certainly not modern, but when you see the attention paid to construction and knowing it was owned for 48 years, it becomes more valuable.

We Can’t Handle It
