Tiny house living on Ferry

I've been on this block of Ferry many times, but never noticed this little house before. The bigger house, though with many updates, is the older of the pair. Is assume the smaller one was built as a garage? And then sometime converted into its own residence? 
There's a movement in 'tiny homes'; I think this one was ahead of the trend.

Sassafras Alley Life

Sometimes when you get out of your car and walk, you notice things you just don't see out of a car window. I would say most everyone in Easton wouldn't have opportunities to cruise our numerous alleyways, but there is much to see.
This one is interesting, especially when you notice the outline of the original garage. Could be a former carriage house? Could be an awesome loft apartment now if someone tried.
This one too has lots of potential. 
I don't understand how people who have garage space on the alley don't use them more, especially since street parking is tight. If I had a garage I wouldn't just be storing junk in it for sure. Well, some junk maybe.

Windows and ladders

I just liked this view, Butler St. The brickwork is in good shape, as are the windows. I like the angles and shapes, pretty cool.

Missing Crowns

S 11th St, four singles in a row. These are real nice homes for the area, much wider than typical. Its interesting how different owners over the years have changed things, perhaps for fashion, perhaps out of necessity. The built in gutters require a lot of maintenance so the second one from the right removed theirs some time ago. Only the last one still has the ornate crown and window trim.

I appreciate what was done here, just a splash of color on an otherwise bland block.

Looking up

Some of the more interesting things in Easton are up high or down low. This dormer for instance:
Needs some love obviously, but it's beautiful. But the lower part of the house is not nearly as detailed:
Vinyl siding is bad, end of story.

S 11th at

This is a wonderful house. On the alley, it's a single, with lots of original details. Somehow it avoided being wrapped in aluminum or plastic.

So why is it 'ugly'? The aluminum awning needs to go, and OMG how hard is a coat of paint?
