About the Building

Fernando Nelson lived in this house on Castro Street for ten years.

This understated Queen Anne is unlike most of Nelson's Victorians in the neighborhood (which lack towers but feature his trademark donuts and drips), but it served to demonstrate the quality of his work to his prospective clients and neighbors.

There's a colorful art glass window beside the front door.

When built, the house was on the back of the lot; Nelson's lumber yard and shop stood where the house is now. A later owner moved the building forward atop the newly built brick garages.
