I am very surprised? I would expect all priests in all places to always be blessing things. It is not difficult and just requires a prayer blessing the object for its use. Cars are blessed, homes are blessed, anything appropriate can and should be blessed.
When I was given an icon as a gift at my baptism I asked my priest to bless it since that's what I was used to, and he told me that we don't to that. He said that only the icons in the Church are blessed, and only by a bishop, not by a priest... Obviously that would be consecrated the way most people talk about it, but there doesn't seem to be a concept of a lesser blessing for personal use like other traditions have. It seemed strange to me, but as far as I'm concerned if an icon is made properly, and used properly, it's still holy even if a priest hasn't prayed over it... I really do like the EO tradition of placing it on the altar more, but oh well.
I have heard of some people having a bishop come to their house and consecrate their home icons with myroun. Our main icons are a gift from a priest who used to be EO that he used in his home for years, so the best of bost worlds.
The Coptic Church doesn't even seem to have a service for blessing a house. My priest composed one, and a neighbouring bishop adopted it. I wonder what the historical practice was in this regard?
