OTR tour of homes

The OTR Foundation puts on a tour of homes every year or so, and I really wanted to go this year because there is a lot of new rehabs to see. Unfortunately, I did not have my camera with me, but this guy did.

Some of the projects were impressive, notably 1214-16 Vine by Uban Sites. They had the largest units, and EVERY unit had some kind of private outdoor space. The importance of this outdoor space cannot be emphasized enough. They also had larger units, which could fit a family, although families are more likely to choose a side street. I think I only saw one unit that was a three bedroom, and that was the townhouses on Orchard Street, by Mike Uhlenhake. In my opinion, this would be an ideal family home.

Damn, I wish I had brought my camera.
