    What’s better than a wraparound porch on a Queen Anne? A double wraparound porch on a Queen Anne. I guess the same goes for upper kitchen cabinets.

    This is a beautiful home. The floor showing was so shiny & pretty.

    The person that invents an affordable and non intrusive way to air condition old homes will make a fortune and most of us will bow down and kiss their feet. We’ve priced and looked at all the current options and they don’t work for us. Someday, someone, will care about the A/C efficiency/appearance/cost issue and we will all be happy.

      Are wooden houses warmer than brick houses or concrete/parpens buildings? As a French person, I do recognize our houses are sometimes warm in summer (either built of stone for the old ones or concrete parpens for new ones), but I don’t get the obsession with A/C (especially in the US version of “way too cold” when outside is “way too hot”), and seeing the amount of hot air rejected outside to cool the inside, you’re gonna have a local warming over the US territory 😀 . Are really most of the houses and appartments equiped with AC? I do admit that in our stone house the 1st floor is livable without AC, but in our bedroom under the roof on the 3rd floor, it’s 28-32°c (82-90°F) in summer and the fact that window units do not even exist here is a pb, although we could find a huge and noisy standing A/C unit (like a truck parked in your room).

        Yes, pretty much everyone, in Texas at least, uses AC. Cuero Texas has an average high in August of 98 F or 37 C but can reach well over 100 F or 39 C or higher for several days in a row. It reaches highs of 104F or 40 C. All of this can include pretty high humidity since it is about an hour from the Gulf of Mexico. Living in Texas is pretty miserable without AC unless you don’t mind sweating… a lot.
        FYI the sound of our units isn’t really heard, as all our windows are closed and the compressor is outside. Almost all homes have a central unit with compressor outside, all newer ones do. If you have a newer high efficiency unit, you barely hear them even when you are outside. The AC companies have made living in Texas bearable at a inexpensive cost with high efficiency units and good insulation.

          Thank you for your reply and explanations 🙂 Well, we did have 2 months of summer 35-39°c (in the sun = 98-102°F) here too, that’s why i can imagine what it is to live in the heat for a few months. But i do admit that before we found this huge AC for our bedroom I slept on the sofa once or twice in the living-room with stone walls (the upstairs are drywalled over stone). 27° (82°F) is not uncommon in upstairs bedrooms and we have to live with it. And it is worst in Paris were there is little air circulation contrary to countryside. The thing is we have to live with it (and fans) as we do not have other options…

            Even if the thermometer only reads 35C, the humidity can make it feel like it’s 37. The humidity can get so bad it’s hard to breath sometimes. I really have no idea how our ancestors survived the heat of the summers, especially in the deep South.

        Hi, Miss Apple. We live in a 1912-built brick-on-bottom/wood above house and it’s pretty comfortable in any season. The place seems like all window so we’re usually able to set up a draft (and thankfully, there’s a skylight in the attic that can be opened to bleed off some heat) but it’s never really oppressive (except occasionally in the kitchen – that goes a little beyond cozy). We don’t feel like we suffer for not having AC, anyways. With temperatures sometimes in the high 30s for a few days or a week, we’ll get sweaty on the second floor but that’s about the worst of it. (We’re in northern/northish Canada, in Edmonton)

    When you think about it for the price of 365.000. you get two houses, one a mansion to live in and the other could be a rental to help with the mortgage … who could ask for anything more … you would never find that in Canada. AMAZING!

      Hey, Colleen. Just tire-kicking, but how vivid are your dreams of old house ownership? We’ve got a nice old 1912-built historic property in Edmonton that we occasionally waffle on. Incredible place, but not cheap and my work is unstable. If you’re in the area, we’re also considering opening up the basement and/or attic for rent.
      Scott.

        Thanks so much, Kelly. We’re the third owners but the preservation and updating was all done by the previous owners, who left us with a treasure-trove of photos, architectural drawings, and some of the original furniture.

        OHD bears some of the responsibility for us having the house in the first place. We could only look at so many beautiful old places before needing one, ourselves.
        Scott.

    “Two-fer” deal here with the main Victorian house as well as a more modern guest house. (which might be possible to use as a rental if one wished) There are probably some interesting period details not shown in the few photos. I had to chuckle in reading the comments from Miss-Apple. It was 96 today here in Fort Worth and even though this summer was relatively mild we did hit 107 F. back in August and still average the low to mid-90’s F. daily until perhaps the beginning of October. Our latest recorded triple digit temp here was October 3rd so yes, Texas summers are formidable. Unless you are the rugged-pioneer-stoic type, air conditioning is expected by most Texas folks for the summer months. I do have a longtime friend who insists on not using his central A/C because he works outdoors a lot and feels going from a chilled interior out into the heat is not healthy. I’ll take my chances and stay cool.
