At Home with the Push Button Manor

. But we still like to keep it old school.

The Push Button Manor in Jackson, Michigan is about as old school as the concept can get. The modern (for the time) house was equipped with analog mechanics of the “future”, things like windows that close automatically during rain, remote control drapes, and automated dressing table lighting. What’s great is that the home’s owner made all the stuff DIY. Make, eat your heart out.

Many of these devices are things we’d take for granted these days, but at the time of grand engineering, a man building these devices into his house wasn’t geeky, it was “Genius”. Now if we could convince the signif to let us try our hand at this, we’re all set.
