MidCentury Modern

Look what I found! Last summer, Denver Historic hosted a tour of Hilltop Mid-Mod houses. We were in a bit of a rush with a cranky and sleepy toddler…and we had just started remodeling our house. I already did blog posts of the other three houses that we saw on the tour. But, I forgot […]

We’ve been so focused on the remodel and haven’t spent much time on our future decor. Actually, our serious lack of funds is dictating that for now. But, I’ve been doing occasional scouring for mid-mod goodies. We can’t afford any great stuff (can you say a Womb chair), but we’ve been picking up some fun […]

NanaWall is in the house

by lesley on October 17, 2009

Ty and I are fighting colds (hopefully not the flu) and are laying low, but we stopped by the house today to check progress. Our Nanawall was installed today! It is our almost 10 foot tall by 12 feet long window wall. Rather than sliding, the window panels fold back towards the house. It’s one […]

Arapahoe Acres Home Tour – Was a Huge Success

by lesley on October 11, 2009

The 2009 Arapahoe Acres Home Tour was decidedly a huge success. We had some initial neighborhood resistance to having a ton of people parade through the hood, but a great turn out of lovely mid-mod fans made the day a big success. 7 Homes & 4 Gardens were open for tours from 10A to 2P. […]

Sketch Up Images

by lesley on September 20, 2009

Our architect created 3D Sketch-Up Images so we could visualize our new space. I kept forgetting to put them up here. Also, I just figured out how to move around in Google SketchUp. I’m slow like that.

Weekly Remodel Progress

by lesley on September 20, 2009

It doesn’t look like a lot happened this week, but quite a few things got done. Somehow, the ceiling tongue & groove was underestimated, so a rush custom order was needed for about 300 more square feet. AND, there was a fire at the lumber yard, so we lost a few days. But other work […]

Lots of Remodeling Progress

by lesley on September 11, 2009

It’s been a crazy last two weeks. And very productive. Here are the biggies. All of the beams for the addition are in place and welded together. The roof & ceiling was completely ripped off of the original house. Can you say rotten ceiling? The new tongue & groove ceiling was installed in the addition […]
