Row Houses at Work – The Row House Storefront

Every now and then, a row house has to be more than a house. From the beginning of urban development, people have worked and live in the same buildings. Larger row houses are perfect for this intimate commerce. Below are a few of our favorite examples and we’ll be adding more as we come across them.

      1. Ah OK. If you are indicating the black cone-shaped bits at either side bottom, those are buffers that prevent the driver from hitting the wall. Better to bump into those and replace them than having to repair the actual wall. ~ Suzanne

      2. You know, I’m not really sure but here in Philly, you often have to pull in to your garage in a way that requires 0% chance for error. At least these protect your house. I’ve seen people use foam, like pool noodles and bumper protectors. Even without a specific name, contractors are going to know what you’re talking about. ~ S
