i’ve moved into this crazy san francisco earthquake cottage and the oddness of certain nooks and crannies never cease to amaze, and yet charm me. i’m constantly discovering some oddity of architecture and wondering, ‘why the heck did they do that?‘. as in all rustic spaces that certain vintage charm can go a long way — and if doesn’t you need to make it work. modern touches in very old places just work for me. there’s a history there that when enhanced can make a home just that much more interesting.
