So many nooks and crannies.  Perfect for collecting dust.

Is the bed made or not?  Can’t tell with all those wrinkles in the material.

There is no way at all!”

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.

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.

Sometimes home décor can be too personal.  Parents are excited about their newborns and kids and decorate their bedrooms.  That’s fine.  But when selling…
