House of the Day Rock Creek Church

Well, the awesome tree in full bloom initially got my attention to warrant house of the day status. It is a really nice corner house with a beautiful porch. I like the wind chimes too. Looks like a lovely place to read the paper with a cup of coffee in the morning.

It would look even better if the original-style columns, newel post and railings were reinstalled. It's not that expensive and it looks sooo good.

too bad you gave away your lovely wind chimes, since you like them so much! Maybe we can loll near this house and listen to theirs...

The PoP can have his wind chime back if he likes. They haven't found their way to a new porch yet.

For your question on newel posts. Fortunately for hipsters, there's a thing called the "inter-net" for such questions.

I rent the basement at this house and I do agree it is cute, especially the yard. The owners are in the process of painting the house bright yellow and soon it will be even nicer!
