1950’s Revisited

Editing and Rehab of A California Classic

A 1950’s ranch house in the California central valley was remodeled to remove a 1970’s kitchen, rehab the original pink & grey bathrooms and open up all interior spaces for light and views. It was an editing project designed to blend the best of the home’s mid century heritage with modern updates. In addition to resolving the many electrical and plumbing ‘surprises’ familiar to all remodeling, wall openings were realigned, rustic beams were painted out, carpet was replaced by oiled oak flooring and two stone fireplaces were revived with colored concrete hearths. The project was a heartfelt rehab and revival of a family home that was custom built for the owner’s family decades before and has never changed hands.
