The Brick House

Often the “before” shot is better than the “after,” but not here. Above is a nice use of nearly black paint on an old plaster wall in this Hemet, California midcentury cinderblock house. Via the blogĀ The Brick House. Read the entertaining FAQ, in which the homeowners talk about buying nothing for more than $100 (except the house of course). And they’ve done this greatĀ simple exterior which looks so much better than the earlier raw cinderblock.

    I don’t know if you’ve ever been to Hemet, but this has got to be the coolest house there by a wide margin!

    I love this house. Pretty inspiring homeowners. I’ll have to try out that buy-nothing-over-$100 thing.

    Yes, they did a great job. I think I’ve been doing the nothing over $100 thing for years out of necessity.
