Mid-Century Real Estate Question: The Carport Enigma. Why Are Most Mid Century Modern Homes Built Without Regular Garages?
Mid Century fanatics out there, can you tell us? I was born in the (ahem, way latter) part of the mid-century and grew up with this stuff and in a tri-level home. But in Chicago, bet your booty we had a garage! Anyone know why most mid centuries in Dallas and Cali come with carports instead of garages? Where did the carport originate anyhow? Speaking of, I drove by the “Bruce Goff House that is not a Bruce Goff House” the other day at 7507 Baxtershire, JanMar, Dallas’s famous round house. They have completely removed the dome in front.
