CDLV - What it Means

If you read the blog often enough, you might read CDLV in random posts relating directly to our home. CDLV, simply, is the acronym for Casa de la Vanderdogan. It was the easiest, and most creative, way to give our home a name. Casa, the Spanish for Home/House, de la, (of the) Vander (the first two syllables of my last name) dogan (the last two syllables of Scott's last name).

Confusing? Now you know why I simply say CDLV. {smile} I've never thought to write it all down, but there's quite a story to CDLV, after all, it was built in 1922, and has a host of stewards before us. If you're interested, let me know! I'll start working up the post!

  3. Hey Steve, yes, it's a clipped gable, or hipped gable? I'm not sure the architectural term, but yes, hipped or clipped - one of the two! LOL!
