Dennis Rodkin linked to this great Projectophile gallery in his story earlier today about whether a Mid-Century Modern house is a good investment.
Dollars and cents aside, there is another factor to consider. Won’t your kids just fall to their demise from all those artfully open ledges and rail-free stairs? What parent could feel comfortable with a toddler taking an open bridge across a pond, just to reach the front door?
With so many fantastic Mid-Century Modern homes in the Chicago area, these concerns walk a fine line between practical and paranoid.
But here’s the point, as illustrated by the blood red arrows scribbled over Projectophile’s images: When it comes to your dream house, you just can’t be too careful.
