But most of the houses are in that golden era, from Post-War to early Seventies.An accurate ranch-house renovation isn't for everyone.
If we wanted the right neighborhood, we’d have to get something that needed work…and a lot of it, to be exact.
Luckily, I researched loan options and realized we could take advantage of a rehab loan.
It means keeping a lot of the things that us today have long outgrown.
Here are some things you might like and dislike about doing a historically accurate ranch-house renovation.
Gabbi from Retro Ranch Renovation has a fantastic Rancher Remodel to share with us…you’re going to love it!
They signed on the line August 2011 and have been working ever since…the progress pictures are absolutely amazing!Television soared in popularity in the fifties and nearly every household had one.Due to television and advances in mass media, consumerism truly took hold and popular culture flourished.A few days ago, I got an e-mail from my mom that said, “Just wondering why you don’t have our bathroom under Rooms I Designed.” Good question! As I’m sure you know, bathrooms weren’t given much consideration in the 60s.It’s one of my favorite projects I’ve ever done, so I definitely needed to get that post linked up under the “Rooms I Designed” tab. They were generally small and utilitarian, and a far cry from the luxurious spa-type retreats that we expect of bathrooms today.Over the years, my mom had tried to update the room. Oh sure, the wallpaper could have been ripped down, the walls given a coat of paint, and the vanity replaced with something more updated. The door really was that narrow, and the shower itself was like a tiny, dark closet.
