I was shooting around Queen Anne and came across this wonderful home under construction. This house is a four rankÂ structure because theÂ front windows (which are attractively tall and multi-paned!) and the door line up in fourÂ neat vertical lines. (the windows on the far right are actually on a bay on the side of the house)Â Note: nice integration of salvaged double front doors.
In colonial timesÂ glass was expensive,Â the rank countÂ of your home was a matter of prestige; the higher the rank the better your standing in society. Most average homes were 3 (a door flanked by two rows of windows.)Â Â Queen Anne, Seattle, WA, USA, Contemporary, 2010
