What are your favorite house names?

Do you know the origin/meaning of the name?


The Swamphouse is the only

The Swamphouse is the only one I'm vaguely familiar with.

What's the definition of a "punk" house?

The Mad House (so called because it's on Madison): I went to a great party there once, a dress-up dance party (awsome!). Plus, this woman that used to live there had my phone number before me, and when I first moved to Oly the folks at Safeway used to say, "Thanks, Mrs. Dimatteo" when I used my club card. I finally met her at a barbeque at her house, and she turned out to be really cool. :)

I'm pretty sure all the black houses have different names to distinguish them, but I only know a few. The Track House is by the train tracks, the Swamp House is by a swamp, the Puget House is on Puget, etc. Kind of boring nomenclature, if you ask me.

Casa Hueso: Bone House. What's up with that name?

We should come up with a comprehensive list! 

My old house

My old house was called The Peoples Republic of Flav-a-flavistan. That was a cool name. Before that I lived at the Doll Haus.

Rock Haven

south of Chehalis on the Jackson Highway. Beautiful place, lots of stone work, great creek. Somebody built several wonderful rock houses in Lewis County a few decades ago. I know where three of them are. Rock Haven is the most visible and best known.

I will take pics of the three in the next few months and post story about them. The builder liked rock and water. They are not Falling Water but they are unique craftsman works.

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed." President Dwight D. Eisenhower April 16, 195
