our renovation

waiting to close…

After renovating our 50s ranch for the past 9 years, we sold it. Fast.  And for a decent price.  Hurray for market shift!  Now we are waiting on closing on a huge 1962 mid century ranch… that needs work.  Something I said I didn’t want to do again.   we ‘lost’ a quad level house that was perfectly renovated/updating keeping original MCM finishes in tact.  I shouldn’t even mention it… The house we DID get, well, it is in my dream neighborhood, quiet, centrally located and the hood is FULL of custom mid century modern homes.  I just may start jogging again just for the eye candy!  We will be renovating again… with two kids… and the house is 2.5x larger than the one we are moving out of.  Raise your hand if you are already overwhelmed!

I will be blogging the process.  And as soon as we take possession, the before photos will be shared!

Here goes nothing.

Exterior… pink doors will likely be painted a blue hue.

While the inspector, inspected, I did selfies in the half bath that is wall to ceiling orange toucan wallpaper.  It is amazing.  And it is staying.  Half bath needs a new toilet & light fixture…
