Culture on the Cheap
Fedders Friday: Casa D’Agosto
It’s been awhile since I have indulged my fascination with the architectural marvel that is Fedderstecture. The reasons for this are numerous, but basically boil down to things:
- The weather: it’s frequently been too cold/damp to search for these beauties.
- The transition from housing boom to bust has rendered new specimens pretty scarce.
Luckily I discovered on Powers Street that not every aspiring Fedderista has had his (or her) activities curtailed by lack of funding.
Presenting Casa D’ Agosto!
It is not only richly appointed with Fedders boxes, but also sports this solitary (if slightly crooked) exposed gutter. Any more would be ostentatious in these lean times.
Besides, they needed to save money for those little refinements. Like concrete…
and this rather formidable looking garage door. We are in a recession after all!
