In Portland, OR, this week. We're staying at the Bluebird Guesthouse, a wonderful place that's kind of a cross between a B&B and a hostel. The Guesthouse is in a 1910 Arts and Crafts style home in the Hawthorne District. (www.bluebirdguesthouse.com, nightly rates $45-80) The house has a beautiful, vertical pocket door at the foot of the stairs. The door runs on this wheel with counter weight. The wheel is a beautiful architechtural element of the home that can be viewed from the second floor.
