We've been house hunting in Detroit (the city... not a suburb)
for 13 months now & have seen over 50 houses. Now we're
currently in the process of buying one... but there's lotsa ducks
that still have to line up. (to coin a corny phrase... hee hee)
Walking through all these bits of history has taught me more
about Detroit, then & now. I've learned lots from our friend,
Tim, who's basically a walking Detroit-Housing-Historian.
As frustrating as "house-hunting" can be, it serves to enrich
my understanding & love of Detroit!
Here's a tiny sampling of the many interesting things we've seen.
(I've taken an average of 30 pics per house. That's 1500 pics.
Most are deleted, but I saved a few.)
(historic but poorly functioning kitchen)
(elevator, built in 1920's)
(Missing furnaces, water heater, copper pipes)
(bathrooms with nothing in them)
(historic beauty... and secret rooms!)
(Remains of a kitchen in a 5 yr. old house)
