Seattle area home sale and prices still strong

Beautiful vintage homes on Capitol Hill located on 16th Ave. E. 98112

If you've been trying to buy a house lately, you realize that inventory is really low and any well-priced house gets multiple offers. Great for home sellers, bad for home buyers. The Seattle area's multiple listing service (NWMLS) recently reported that home prices have "clearly recovered" in King County and a few other areas served by Northwest Multiple Listing Service.

Frank Chopps’ Modern “Urban Cabins” in the Central District

Seattle Real Estate

Growing up in Seattle, I was fascinated by the two very different homes that were built on the corner of 24th Ave. E. and East Yesler.  As a kid, and unfamiliar with modern architecture, I had no point of reference for the unique structures I saw that reminded me of an eagle in flight or perhaps one of the pyramids at Giza.  Who built the two structures and why?
