FWIW, I too remodeled my kitchen with Ikea. Unfortunately, someone had refinish my kitchen in the 80's and the cabinets were no longer original. Rather than go with normal Ikea doors, I ordered custom walnut veneer doors from another company called Scherr's. Ikea cabinet bases and hardware are top n...

I can't help but look at these pictures and imagine how I'd go about restoring the place. Honestly, it looks like a project, but I don't think it's impossible. Spend a week clearing out the entire house, clear cutting the overgrown vegetation and just give it a cleaning and it would look infinitely ...

This house is really close to my house (see thread in home forum) Went to the open house this weekend. Really cool house but soooo small. I swear you wouldn't be able to fit a queen-sized bed in the "master" bedroom. My wife said she couldn't imagine how a women could live there. There is ...

Thanks for the complements! The kitchen is so much more functional now. The "before" picture above is pretty much the same angle as the first "after" shot. The oven is now where the booth used to be. Here's another before shot that shows the other part of the kitchen. It should g...

Hi Everyone! Well, it's been a year since I first posted about our house. We've been Busy! The biggest project involved the kitchen. We took the old 80's remodel down to the studs. We even had the son of the original owners come in and jackhammer out the old floors and pour new ones. The kitchen is ...

Thanks for the kind words about our new home everyone and happy holidays! It's been a busy couple weeks getting moved in. We closed on the house a couple weeks ago. The house wasn't listed on MLS. I found it listed on zillow as "make me move". I contacted the owner to see how serious he wa...

My new House in Dallas

Just wanted to stop by and share (show off) :-) my new house in Dallas. The house is in an area of the city called Lake Highlands. The house was built in 1961 by a builder called Ju Nel. Ju Nel is perhaps the most significant builders of MCM homes in Dallas. They had a run of 5-6 years where they bu...

Sorry to break it to everyone. I went and checked this house out today. It's in a world of hurt. It looks like the roof has never been replaced and there is water damage everywhere. You're looking at serious rotted wood/structural problems and I suspect some really bad mold There was a master bedroo...

Re-reading some of your posts, i figure I'd throw a few more cents out there. RE: Bar vs. Brick. - Ditch the Bar, and consider bringing the brick down to a half-wall. If I remember that should be possible. RE: Glass wall - I may be mistaken, but those glass tiles are not original. They're DIY stick ...

Hey Sealuxe, So glad (and sad) to see this house posted here. You beat my wife and I by about 4-hours to get an offer in on it. It truly is a gem! We love that area and have been patiently waiting like you have for one of the homes to open up. Please keep us posted on how the renovation goes. I'll b...

Thanks Dallasmodern, I drive by that house a couple times a month in hopes of seeing a for sale sign in front of it. According to Dallas CAD, it's over 2700 sqft in size. I would love to walk through it and see where all that space is. From the outside it doesn't look that big. There are a number of...
