Single & nekkid

Duncan St., Charleston, SC  
There is a rare unpainted Charleston single house on Duncan St.
Charleston single house is a form of house found in Charleston, South Carolina. The house is well-suited to long, narrow lots which were laid out in early Charleston. A single house has its narrow side (often two- or three-bays wide) with a gable end along the street and a longer side (often five-bays) running perpendicular to the street.
So, if that is the definition of single house, how about the definition of Nekkid? I found that too:
Nekkid is not simply being without clothing--It means you are gettin' nekkid for mischevious purposes. Naked is natural; nekkid is naughty.
I had a lovely dinner with friends this evening at Hanks Seafood. We went to take advantage of the Restaurant Week deal but ended up ordering off the regular menu. Yum!

We have houses of that concept here in older neighbourhoods, though we don't call them that.

OK, I'll admit it...your blog title today brought me here. ;-)

I don't ever get tired of looking at your photos of Charleston houses, be they large or small or plain or very ornate.
