Open House: Historic SW Vernacular-Style Downtown Adobe.

Open House: Historic SW Vernacular-Style Downtown Adobe.
by Chris Lucas

SW Vernacular-style was popular in the early 1900's; it consists of creative ways to express rooflines that diverge from the typical Spanish Pueblo Revival style. Join me this Sunday, June 24th, for an Open House at this urban & unique adobe-built, SW Vernacular-style home. It lives Downtown at 900 Silver Ave SW & is a fun place to visit. I like how the kitchen has been remodeled to be included with the other public rooms, making it comfortable for the person(s) preparing dinner to converse directly with her/his guests.
