1956 Cape Cod - A Modern take that Respects Roots
Good design is at the heart of this house's re-imagining. Even if you're not a master designer, you can see the massive visual effect that clearing or moving unattractive landscape plants can have on curb appeal. Small touches and large changes combined have given this house a completely new life.
1955 Brick Ranch - Modern Gardeners
The main BIG change in this house was the installation of the backyard mini-farm. Otherwise, most of the changes these homeowners have made were small, simple, and inexpensive improvements that add up to higher quality of life: Adding aftermarket remotes and a keypad to the VERY old garage door opener, stalling improved thresholds to keep water out, making use of vertical spaces in the kitchen, making and installing updated house numbers, painting, and CLEANING. Cleaning is always free and it always makes things look better.
