Oh, what thrill it was! The one-hundred-percent, doubt-free identification that we so rarely get to see! But just wait; we will get to that later. This week's historic kit home is actually a rare find, at least for Washington, DC (correct me, if I'm wrong--I'm always looking to make new discoveri...

(Modified version of original source: Good School, Good Neighbors, Bad School, Bad Neighbors?) Last week, my first contribution to Where We Live, the Washington Post's new buzzing real estate blog, dealt with a stormy issue: neighborhood involvement in the site selection process for the planned M...

This is going to be so exciting! Yesterday, the Post started its new real estate blog, Where We Live, and it looks great--lots of interesting features and series, and hopefully a very lively discussion are coming up.

Yesterday, I promised more on kit homes. Here we go. The next amazing discovery I made when I was b...

Original source: DChouseCat--Over And Over Again   It's no fun, and one of those endlessly repeating things a homeowner has to put up with.  But it’s so important that I will preach it here again: Clean out your gutters! If the gutters on your house look like the one on my garage here in the pict...

"What?!," asked my pre-teen daughter, "we are what?"  "Getting up a bit earlier and walking to school," I said. "October 5th is National Walk-To-School Day." "You've got to be kidding." My daughter normally takes the bus to a magnet school that is--according to Google--2.7 miles from our house.  ...
