So much for the uniqueness of our house 😉 Today I noticed that a house a mere two blocks away and that I’ve passed by thousands of times is basically the same as ours. Like the other twin, it sits on a flat lot, so it doesn’t give the same “street feel” as ours, meaning it didn’t jump out at us as a copy. It is very interesting to see how each house has the same basic plan but varies widely in the details. Both of the twins have single-gabled dormers on the side, while ours has the unusual double-gable. Since both twins have multi-paned windows, it makes us wonder if ours did, too. I suspect not, since our remaining original windows in our house were not, but many of our windows were stripped out in the 60’s and replaced with non-opening glass. 8/2009: we found another look-alike.
