Houses on Hills

Houses in Astoria, Oregon May 20, 2010

Here is the back of the house in yesterday's post along with its neighbor. They show two more adaptations to living on hills. The white building in the distance with the gray roof is the apartment building I lived in when I first arrived in Astoria. It has five stories, but only three are at or above street level. I lived on the bottom story, and even the back part of that was high above ground level. The hallway was buried in the hillside, and it kept the place cool on those rare hot days.

A very strange house, but surely fascinating!

Must have been rather nice living in such a unique (for a Floridian) building. I spent some of my early years in Duluth, Minnesota, which is built on a hill and there were some very interesting houses there, too.

Re your comment on Paree: Did I miss something? Are you an artiste, too?

I love the stilts!

I'm still not sure about living on a hill in Astoria ... with a history of mud slides ...

But they are very picturesque!
