Did you know that our 1940’s cottage does not have AC?
It was never put in and frankly, we don’t usually need it even during the hot California Summers
A bonus of older homes in our area is that they usually have extra thick walls
(and ours are wood planked as well) and a basement
We do have a basement that is always cool-it’s actually a perfect temperature wine cellar year round
even that cool basement doesn’t do much for the house
and then distressed it accordingly.
I love that they bring such sweet vintage charm at the same time
even when they are wide open
