It’s Great To Be Home . . .

a homebody’s guide to home renovation and more

Home Tour February 12, 2009

We fell in love with this 1960’s ranch early on in our home search, and jumped at the chance to buy it when the price was slashed over the summer.  Four bedrooms, 3.5 baths, an actual yard and almost 2,700 square feet just begging for some love – let me tell you, this place was a dream come true after the tiny tan townhouse!  After several months (yes, months!) of negotiations, inspections, dealing with construction loans, etc., the house was ours!!!!  Then we got to start in on the fun stuff – RENO! 
 

We finally moved into the new digs the day after Christmas, so we’re still settling in.  As you can see, it’s a work in progress, but I’m pretty proud of what we’ve accomplished so far.  Take a look at the before and after pics!

    Man that looks awesome!!!! I cannot wait to see more pictures of the ‘after.’ 😉

  2. Chris Clore Says:

    This is such a fun, functional, and fabulous site! It gives us all hope when we see a redo with “lots of potential” to see what you have done. I can’t wait to keep visiting this website and see what else you and others contribute.

  3. Kerry Hollingworth Says:

    Wow, Liz!! Everything looks so great!!! I’m impressed. What a great idea on the website…

  4. Janis Lilly Says:

    Where were you when I lived in the clone of your house — same floorplan, same cabinetry, same rock wall fireplace that I despised — and desperately needed your transformational touch? Congratulations on your beautiful work!

  5. Jen Kachel Says:

    Love it!! It looks amazing!

  6. Casey Cummins Says:

    Liz – Absolutely incredible transformation (and website). I’m saving this site as one of my favorites. Congrats!!!

  7. Liz, your remodeling projects were lengthy! Whoa, what an undertaking! I love the sleek, clean lines. The flush mount sinks and great tile work are really beautiful. How much of this did you do yourselves, I wonder? Very impressive. Also, the dome light fixtures in the hallway, are those from Ballard Design? If not, you should check them out online; you’ll like what you find there! Also the CQ3, WestElm and Z Gallerie websites are fun. I love what you’ve done! Bravo!!

  8. Liz Says:

    Thanks, Melissa, I’m so glad you like the site! The dome light fixtures in the hallway are from the Monterey Mosaic Collection by Quoizel. As for the renovations, we are really pleased with how they came out! We had the help of a great contractor, Mike Sepik from Unique Home Construction.

  9. Jaci Goodman Says:

    Liz- I am speechless. Not only is this website awesome, but you’re house is gorgeous. Unbelievable!!!!!!! Is there anything you can’t do? This is going to be a huge success.

  10. Karen Bashara Says:

    I love this! That is the kind of fun I would like to have. You have great taste!
