the purple house

i'm a big fan of colorful houses, so am glad to add "the purple house" to the anacostia repertoire.


kinda dumpy looking, but with a certain charm


the porch re-build

off with the old imitation-brick shingle siding, in with the old(er) wooden clapboard


new porch, new paint, new outlook on life

and i'm holding off on a full profile of the house to the right until it's totally done, but clearly it is looking mighty swell.

(yet another example of the power of the Historic Homeowners Grant Program. Deadline to apply is January 5 ~ and hey, knock on your neighbor's door and help them get it done, too!)
