‘Livin’ is easy’ at Saturday’s home tour

Also “Lynn Haven,” the Porter-Spohrer House at 127 Ave. B, a grand Queen Anne home built by Richard Gibbs Porter in 1898. An 1856 Steinway grand piano is quite noteworthy, and at the rear of the house, an art studio is the latest addition.

Also, the Lauver – Sawyer House, at 50 10th St., an early 20th century cottage that measures only 800 square feet and is a perfect example of how well one can live in a small space.

Also, the Richardson – Gallant House at 203 9th St. , a newly completed home with subtle colors and finished detail sensitive to its woodsy environment; and the Dagenhart House at 174 1/2 Frederick S. Humphries St., a Charleston style house which replaced a tiny shotgun house on a half-lot. A collection of bird houses, an antique collection of snow globes, and art work collected over decades of travel add personal touches to this modern home.

Evensong service at Trinity Episcopal Church will be held on Friday, May 2 at 5:30 p.m., the traditional opening for the home tour. It will be followed by a reception to which all are invited. Homes will be open only on Saturday, May 3, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pre-sale tickets will be available at $20 until the day of the event. On May 3, ticket sales will begin at 9:30 a.m. at $25 per ticket.
