Thursday Trios, Doors and More: Prescott Home Tour#1

Our neighbors bought a home in downtown Prescott and plan to turn it into their dream home. It’s been about a year process so far and they are probably about 65-75% of the way finished, in my somewhat inexpert opinion. Better than inchoate, but they still have a ways to go.

Nubile new house
Test to make the best of old
Rest and admire

Doors and windows in
Spaces not malleable
Challenging to fit 

Their new front door fascinated me with its trio of windows.

The new windows offer a fabulous reflection.
From the porch – the view and three side windows in their Jeep. CMMC PICK A TOPIC – view
Look to the right down the hill from the front porch for a different view, behold two more window trios.

Here’s a look at three panels of the back door, both in time and location. Until you look at the view out in the front, you wonder what they might have seen in the place. 🙂 CMMC – PICK A TOPIC – Back

LOL, Even closed, the door isn’t closed, or isn’t it closed? 🙂

Odd Trio Pics

I loved the red door. This house is across from the Prescott Library. Two windows plus one door = trio. Lots of other trios as well 3 numbers, 3 rows of 3 windows in the door, three chairs and more.

  1. It is always interesting to me to see the progress on project houses. Over the years, I’ve been a fan of the home improvement channels as they document the changes made to make someone’s cast-off into a family home.

    • I love that too. That’s exactly what Vince and I did with our home in CA. We bought a repo in a good neighborhood, and turned it into our dream home of 20 years. It was something that we were both so proud of.


    • Thanks, Cee. I had fun with it. Natalie is one of my new favorite people. She’s full of life and enthusiasm. I’ll follow up on the story once they get farther along.


    • Isn’t that a beauty. It helps to have that view reflecting in it! Prescott downtown is about a two minute drive away from the Prescott National Forest. It is built in the Granite Dells and is quite mountainous at 5300 feet – a mile-high city. So it is quite beautiful here.

  2. I have friends in Prescott. I enjoyed your glimpses (pictorial and verbal) of the area and the sense of the home with the doors. Great idea, doors. I’ve not seen my friends’ house as they chose to live there relatively recently [after I already moved decades ago] and I met them elsewhere. They’ve visited me twice, since their move, though. Maybe I’ll travel there. I did see a backdrop of downtown Prescott in election news, a little over a year ago.


    • You’re welcome. It was fun. I’m not used to doing word challenges very often. I read KL’s and thought I should check those three out. I’m glad I did.





Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
