How to Make Money From Your Home

1965 Turner Street is an example of a typical, gabled "Vancouver Box". This common vernacular style of building was quite popular from 1886 - when the city was first formed - up to 1914.

As you can see, there is a full two stories and an attic. The porch is a separate structure that is attached to the house's "box" frame. This home has an interesting addition which extends into the side yard. FYI, the lots on Turner and Ferndale street are half the standard depth and this has led to some interesting combinations of small, deep and wide properties.
In 1907 and 19089, this address was listed at 1971. A teamster by the name of William T.  Ashford is listed as living here from 1907 through 1912. There is no building permit listed so perhaps the "addition" is in fact the original cottage and the Ashfords added to that around 1910 when the family became more prosperous and settled.

This is an interesting structure located at 2028-2034 Triumph street. What seems to have happened is that the owner of the property built a house. Then decided he or she could make money from this large lot so the house was moved to the back of the lot and an apartment building was built. All this seems to have happened in 1912.

Don't forget that the award winning, The Bond, A Paranormal Love Story, is on sale. The ebook is ONLY 99 cents but this is the last week for the sale. So go here and get one!

The Grandview Heritage blog supplied the information on the Turner Street house while bob_2006 at 'told' me about the Triumph property.

I hope you find the beauty around you.
