While Victorian-style homes (generally any house built during the reign of Queen Victoria, between 1837 and 1901) are equated more with romance than practicality, Spindler says they confer several structural advantages. Their old-growth redwood is less vulnerable to pests and earthquakes than newer homes framing. But there are also drawbacks. Victorians were almost always built without electrical service, so sometimes original gas pipes havent been turned off or may have residual gas in their lines after theyve been capped. This can be an issue for workers who might be cutting into old lines.

The intention was less about future sales and geared more toward simply introducing himself and expressing admiration for the condition and style of the home, something homeowners seemed to appreciate. “A lot of it was just approaching them and saying, ‘Hey, I live in a midcentury house too. I saw your house; its amazing. I love it, ” he says. “They want to talk about that. They want to share.
