After receiving all your encouragement, I am stepping outside of my comfort zone and blogging about our passion. The restoration and revitalization of old mid-century homes is in our heart. Scott and I used to jog/run a route in the Midway Hollow Neighborhood on a regular basis. There was this fabulous mid-century modern home that sat on a corner lot with the dreamiest 1950s wood awning windows. Every time we ran by it, we dreamed of owning this home. And then it happened, one August day, I ran by the home and there was no furniture in it. We immediately called our realtor and learned that the house would be on the market in a few days. We got the sneak peak. It was DIVINE! We scraped every dollar we had together and made an offer. Several days later we learned that it was sold to someone else. Behind the tears, I accepted that it wasn’t meant to be. After an early morning coffee conversation, Scott and I headed out to find our next house. And 30 days later we were the owners of this amazing 1956 Ranch Style home three streets south of the original house we tried to purchase. Please follow along to see how our vision went from this… to this!
