Our New Old House

1918 Bungalow


Drawn from memory after 60 years

The lady who lived in my house as a little girl sent me a letter with a floorplan she drew from memory. She moved out of our house when she was six years old or so and it’s amazing how much detail she remembers. Her drawing is practically to scale and nearly all the locations of doors, windows, and other details are accurate. If you click on the image below it will take you to my Flickr account, where I’ve added some notes to the image listing the little inaccuracies. But for our purposes here, you can pretty much think of this as the current floorplan of our house. I’ve never gotten around to drawing one myself, so this one’s as good as any. I’m so grateful for her generosity in sharing all this with me!

    How neat is that to have! It would be neat framed and hung up on your wall, too!
