Row House in Antwerp, Belgium

The Tuck Box was built in 1927. Because of its unusual location it was built on skids in case the owner wanted to move it.

Finished in 1934, this cottage was one of about 350 homes constructed by Charles Dilbeck in the Dallas area.

In fact, it sits on a corner with 4 other Dilbeck designed houses at the intersection of Shenandoah Street and Douglas Avenue. Locals call them “the four sisters.”
