Seattle Art Museum – Disguise

Today on “Homes Gone By”, were probably going to ask questions with no answers, specifically about the heritage home at 1249 East 11TH Avenue in Vancouver.

Once downstairs, the extra height was perfect for a large shop or a future suite/living space, at the time it was the main shop used for the home reno.

With many efficiency upgrades throughout, including next generation insulation, lighting and an on-demand 12-zone hot water system

The IBC command center

The top floor was unfinished at the time, it seemed to be the sleeping quarters for the person working on the reno.. What happened? Run out of money? Personal Issues? I have to be honest and say it was a little sad, seeing a project unfinished, the potential never reached…

The backyard was back to the curves with a strange concrete border and small grass area, I didn’t quite get it myself but I have to say, the garage was stunning.

Once again I’m left with more questions than answers, maybe I’ll drive by one day and see if somebody finally finished the old house on 11th…
