more About a Gunnison Home...
"prefab-ulous: Gunnison Houses Were Sturdy, Affordable and Went Up in a Wink. Who Put the Magic in Gunnison Magichomes?
that Was Foster Gunnison, the Man Who Wanted to Do for the American Home What Henry Ford Did for the Automobile.
and What Was the Magic?
"if You Had Your Foundation in Place, You Could Start [construction] Tuesday Morning and the Family Could Eat Dinner On Friday Evening in Their Home," Said Randy Shipp, a Lexington, Ky., City Historic Preservation Specialist Who's Been Researching Gunnison Homes for About Four Years.
in the Early 1930s, Mr. Gunnison, a Lighting Engineer Who Illuminated the Empire State Building and Rockefeller Center, Worked With a Group of Architects, Engineers and Plywood Experts to Develop Affordable Housing Using Assembly-line Techniques. the One-story Houses Could Be Put Together On Their Sites from Ready-made Components, Including Walls That Already Contained Steel Casement Windows and Wooden Doors.
gunnison Homes Were a Hit Because They Were Moderately Priced, Well-built And, Thanks to a Variety of Add-on Features, Could Be Custom-made to Accommodate Families of Different Sizes and Means. in 1961, Mr. Gunnison's New York Times Obituary Called His Product "the First Commercially Successful Mass-produced Home in the United States."
marketed Through Franchised Dealers Across the Country, Gunnisons by 1950 Came in 11 Sizes, from a Boxy 24-by-24-foot Model With Kitchen, Living-dining Room, Two Bedrooms, Bath and Utility Room to a Spacious Four-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath Model. All Had Built-in Bedroom Closets and Linen Closets. Traditional Styles -- Cape Cod, Colonial and Ranch -- Were Chosen to Boost Consumer Confidence in the Novel Prefab Building Method.
mr. Gunnison, Son of the Publisher of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, Established His Company in 1935 in New Albany, Ind., a Suburb of Louisville, Ky., On the Opposite Side of the Ohio River.
"new Albany Had a Good Central Location, Access to a Good Supply of Materials, and the Building Had Been a Wood Veneer Factory," So It Already Had Some of the Necessary Equipment, Mr. Shipp Said.
Michelle is a middle school, grades 6-8 NBCT of social studies and Faron is a coal loader operator who loads coal trucks all day long. We live in a small rural town with our sixteen year old soccer playing daughter Erin and three Morkies (Yorkie/Maltese): Jazmin, Charlie, and their baby Coco.
Michelle Gambill and Faron Gambill purchased this house in 2014
This Property Was Owned by Another Perry County Couple, and a Realtor Friend Told Us About It. It Had Been Vacant for Awhile Because the Owner Inherited Her Mother's House Upon Her Mother's Death and Moved Back Home. It Was a Mess, and That's Putting It Gently. But We Saw It's Potential and Were Excited About Owning a Home in Lexington, Since We Come to Lex Often and There Are So Many Things to Do, Whether It Be Sports, Historical, Outdoorsy Or Indoor! It Took Us Over a Year to Renovate Through Our Hard Labor and Jimmy's Hard Labor. Jimmy is My Only Niece's Husband. We Are Very Proud of What Our Blood, Sweat and Tears Accomplished. It's Such a Joy to Stay Here Now, Seeing What It Has Become...a Beautiful, Comfortable Home That We Did Ourselves. It Has a New Heat Pump, New Duct Work, New Water Heater...only the Shell Was Left After We Began Renovating! Thank Goodness the Outside Was in Good Shape, Or That Would Have Been a Deal Breaker. Windows Had Been Replaced and the Outside Has Neat, Pale Yellow Vinyl Siding With Burgundy Shutters, Which I Repainted. a New Front Door is All That Was Needed for the Outside.
the Inside Was a Loooooong Process. We Began Ripping Out the Old Carpet in the Spring of 2014. We Tiled Floors, Painted Everything, Ripped Out Damaged Closet Doors, Found the Second Bedroom Door Under the Outside Building, Stripped the Layers of Paint from the Two Bedroom Doors and Repaired the Holes, Took the Bathroom Door and Frame Completely Off--flipped It Around to Open to the Outside for More Space in the Bathroom. You Name It, We Did It. Jimmy Completely Remodeled the Kitchen Using My Plan. He Widened the Hall Entrance and Closed Off the Original Kitchen Entrance. When the Original Gas Furnace Was Removed, It Added Space to Walk Into the New Kitchen Entrance. He Tiled, Grouted, Sheet Rocked the Walls, Painted, Hung the Microwave, Ran the Water Line Through the Cement Floor to the Ice Maker. You Name It, He Did It. and the Result is Superb.
This Home Has Been Renovated With Love. It's Located Close to Everything "lexington". My Neighbors Are Cool... One is 88 and is an Original Owner Along With His Wife of 60+ Years. He Lives Two Doors Down and Owns the House Beside Me As Well As the House On His Other Side. Another Neighbor Has Been Here for About 10 Years. Her Dog Salty Likes to Escape When He Can Run Out the Door! the Neighborhood is a Good, Nice Place to Be. While Working On the House and Walking My Own Dogs, I Would Talk With Someone Almost Every Time I Went Out. It Has Sidewalks That You Can Walk/run On, a Park Nearby, and Many, Many Nearby Attractions.
They s property is amazing plus the owners are fabulous! We enjoyed every minute of our stay and the owners assured we were comforble. The property was indeed fully stocked and the decor and essentials were awesome! This place is a must if you are heading to Lexington. Thank you so much to Michelle and her husband.
The home was very lovely, love the decor, very clean, all updated, I felt right at home. I had everything I needed. The neighbors were very nice. Michelle was very accommodating to my needs, super nice! I would highly recommend this place to stay.
Loved the house and the location! Definitely planning our next stay. Everything was clean and neat. The owner provided so many things and little extras. Highly recommend!
This property is exactly as advertised. It is squeaky clean and comfortable. The owners are extraordinarily accommodating and responsive. They have furnished the house with all the essentials needed fior cooking and the appliances are state of the art. We appreciated the extra unexpected amenities like bottled water, furnished condiments and all the extras. We actually overpacked for the trip. All you need is your food and personal items.
We had a very good three night stay in this wonderful little house. All was just as described: well-organized, comfortable, well-maintained and clean, nice neighborhood, park nearby. All questions and communications were answered very quickly and clearly. Would recommend it, and stay here again. Thanks Michelle and Faron!
My husband and I and our black Lab visited Lexington for the first time over Thanksgiving and were completely satisfied with our stay at this charming cottage. We found it to be very clean, comfortable and in a nice quiet neighborhood. Michelle went out of her way to ensure we had everything we needed and that we were satisfied in every respect. We would definitely stay here again when visiting family in Lexington. Our comfort level in this cute cottage was a major contributing factor to a positive introduction to Lexington!
