Good Bones

Jon Real Estate Leave a Comment

Often times, you hear folks referring to “”the bones”” of a house.   While people love to swoon over granite, steam showers and surround sound, it’s the actual framing of each structure that gives each home its own soul.  Once you’ve pulled a house apart- and only framing studs remain- its as if you’re looking at a naked home.  It’s actually a little embarrassing.

I was just catching up on one of my favorite Atlanta blogs, Architecture Tourist, when I came across this pic:

The post is all about a complete renovation, and the blog’s author- Terry Kearns- has some great shots of this Morningside makeover.

If you like houses, architecture, neighborhoods or photography, you should spend some time on Architecture Tourist.  It’s a great site.
