Killer

I kind of want to think that someone didn’t read the directions on the bag of ant killer there in the foreground, and this is the result…

Separation

Well, I am not sure what caused this, but somehow the contents of the house became separated from it. (The debris field included a photocopier. If you’re interested, let me know and I’ll provide directions. I don’t think anyone here is using it.)

Prairie Style

It’s probably hard to tell from my usual posts, but I know a couple of things about architecture. Which is sort of pathetic, really, since I’ve got an actual degree in architecture. But that’s neither here nor there.

Prairie style architecture, according to this link*, is “marked by its integration with the surrounding landscape, horizontal lines, flat…roofs…, and restraint in the use of decoration.” So it’s no wonder that this scene seemed to be a fine example!

Welcome!

Thanks for hanging in for the run of photos from the Cliffhouse Project. I’ve been fascinated by this place since it was just a random urban ruin, and am excited that it’s got someone who loves it and who has a vision for its future.

Stick around and I bet you’ll see more photos from here, as it evolves into its new life.

Reach the goal

Yep, keep climbing that hill* and eventually you’ll make it to the top!

* I know. It’s not really that much of a hill, to normal people. But if you’re from here, it is actually rather formidable.
