Buying and remodeling a home wasn’t at the top of my “to-do” list, but I couldn’t resist when the opportunity presented itself. This 1950 Modern Home, located in one of the most coveted communities in Tacoma, walking distance from my office AND equipped with a separate apartment, was a complete slam dunk. I knew I had to have it. Hoping someone else didn’t snatch it up before me, it was a HUGE relief when the stars aligned and BOOM! Here we are, completing a studs out remodel! I’m honoring the traditional features of the 50’s trends (More Modern Please!) and learning so much along the way.
Follow along as the adventures continue in Old Town Tacoma. Whether you are addicted to HGTV and want an insider peek at the renovation process, considering remodeling a home yourself, or are interested in learning about all the “charm” older homes have, this video series has something for you. FOLLOW ALONG!
This first episode lays the ground work for the renovation; giving you a birds eye view of whats happening inside the house and a few of the hardworking professionals making it happen. The contractors aren’t so enthused about the camera. I am sure they will warm up as time goes on. 😉
Just less than a month has passed and I have fallen more in love with the location (and my neighbors!) the views (I can’t wait to watch the sunsets) and the simplicity and easy living it will bring. Never did I think that a home that was dusty, dirty and stripped to the studs could bring such calm inspiration, but it has and I’m so excited to brush the dust off of this ol’ girl and show her off!
