Bungalow Makeover

Donald Tucker and his wife today touring his childhood home now revived.

​Built, we believe in the mid 1920s and owned early on by Captain Claude S. Tucker, the house is mentioned briefly in the book, “The Last of the Fairhaven Coasters: The Story of Captain Claude S. Tucker and the Schooner Coral” stating that “the house no longer stands”. Actually the house does still stand albeit in a location other than its original address of 84 Main St. Captain Tucker’s son Donald, who co-wrote the book, was born in the house in 1932 and recalls viewing the transport of the halved house down route 6 from a window of Fairhaven High School in 1948. ​Being in the rear parking lot of Park Garage, the house was relocated to allow the business to expand.

Being in the rear parking lot of Park Garage, the house was relocated to allow the business to expand. Many renovations occurred over the years but the floors remained a key feature. Mostly fir and some oak and pine, deep herringbone corners and diamond design inlays catch the eye as soon as you enter the home. Click the photos below to learn more about this home.
