best-of-instagram-week-oneWelcome to our first ever “Best of Instagram” post! Whether you’re walking the streets of Brooklyn, or stumbling upon wood-frames in your travels, we want to see them! We hope to add more of your photos every week, so please keep instagraming. All you need to do is add the #woodenhouseproject to your photo and we’ll display your works of art each week.

The photos above come from our travels this summer to New Orleans, walking around Park Slope, and from Wooden House Project-follower ‘colombianbeef’ in East New York. Thank you all for sharing your photos with us, and we can’t wait to see what you find next week!


Do you own or are you curious about a house in Brooklyn, but don’t know where to start your research? We are excited to be giving away one free ticket to the Brooklyn Historical Society’s Research Your House workshop, taking place at 2pm on Saturday, April 27th (retail value of $50)! Entering is easy and requires just two simple steps:

1) Start following us on Instagram and Twitter
2) Upload at least one photo with #woodenhouseproject

Winner will be chosen at random on the morning of Monday, April 22nd. If you are already following us, don’t worry, you’re still entered – just follow step #2!

Also: Does anyone know where the wooden houses above are located?


The Wooden House Project is now on Instagram! Follow us here and be sure to tag all of your photos #woodenhouseproject  – we’ll be featuring a photo from the pool each week. Or visit our Get Involved page for other ways to connect with us!
