403 Dimm, Richmond

Today we feature a stylistically transitional house built shortly after the conclusion of the Second World War. Materials were in very short supply during the war, so few homes were built and those that were lacked much of the detail that was common in years prior. Once the war ended, tastes had changed and builders attempted to adjust as they ramped back up. This home, built in 1947, has the steel sash windows and exposed lintels of a traditional period revival structure, but it also looks a lot like the ranch houses that would proliferate in the years after the war. It is an interesting snapshot of a particular moment in our local architectural history.
