Beuatiful color of the sky, nice pictures.
It's a beautiful blue sky!
This is great, Ben! I love that part of town.
like the shot...and like bungalow heaven too.oh how i miss so cal.it's a nice day here...try 8 degrees. so far no snow this season but lots of cold temps.have a great weekend...
Glad you linked to the neighborhood website. This really is a wonderful neighborhood for all kinds of reasons. They have an annual walking tour that used to be the last Sunday in April. Its fun stuff.
Good Life - we're aiming for 82 degrees today. Not to rub it in or anything!
I like that typeset used in the sign. Are these new? They have plans of doing something similar to the signage on the Pasadena Freeway. Renaming it the Arroyo Parkway with a craftsmen feel to it.
They've been up as long as we've lived in Pasadena - a year and a half. I wonder if people will start referring to the 110 as the Arroyo Parkway?
Have a nice weekend in Joshua Tree, MC!
Bungalow Heaven is one of Pasadena's sweet spots. I like the park in the middle.
How's that for a great Pasadena sky. Heavenly blue with heavenly neighborhood.
Weren't at least some of the bungalows based on the exact same floor plan? I recall someone who lived in one telling me this, but I'm not sure.
I have never been there but must be a "paradise"...just by looking at the blue sky and the palm trees..beautiful photo!!happy weekend!My blog
Attempting to answer my own question, I found this in an article, "Bungalow Bounty," about craftsman homes:"The consummate Craftsman homes were designed by architects, such as Greene & Greene's Tiffany glass-studded Gamble House in Pasadena. But many bungalows were produced by carpenters who worked from standardized floor plans and pattern books that were sold by the thousands, said Miedema. The style was, after all, developed for the "common man." https://www.entrepreneur.com/tradejournals/article/63299029.html
Mr. Earl, there are also a few "kit houses" in Bungalow heaven. In the 1920's (I think it was) you could order a kit from Sears and other places. It came with instructions and materials. You could build the house yourself or hire a crew.
Are some of the bungalows kit houses, Petrea? Do you know which ones they are? I think the quote from the article above about standardized floor plans and pattern books may have also meant to incorporate kit houses as well. I do recall hearing about them.
I know of one on Mentor, but can't recall the address. If you google "Pasadena kit house" - I think that'll get you some info.
Wow, Petrea, you actually did a whole blog on Kit Houses last May!
She sure did, check it out right here: http://pasadenadailyphoto.blogspot.com/2008/05/bungalow-in-box.html
*blush*The research is half the fun.There's one on my block, too, but I don't live in Bungalow Heaven. These houses have held up 70, 80 years and more and are still in fine shape. Pasadena has some unique home architecture and it's not all Craftsman.
