Old House Remodel Projects – 3 Fascinating Stories
I don’t think there’s any city dweller, especially those living in big crowded urban areas, who doesn’t have this fascination about moving into a renovated old house. If we were to make an ad-hoc top of dreams this would surely make it to the first position, especially among those people who have previously had the experience of living in the countryside. And, to help you keep dreaming, here are a few old house remodel projects, telling us fascinating stories about people who sought spiritual fulfillment first of all.
The first telling example showing us a dramatic change comes from America where a family took an old ranch style home and turned into a two story house without any change of the footprint. The change is a radical one, as you can easily see, the new abode getting a final aspect way friendlier and more attractive. The whole process took up to three years and the family used some of the construction materials of the old structure to save money and give the new place a more familiar air alike.
In our second example, a house built in the 1800’s, giving away its age due to the shabby grey looking exteriors, went through a complex renovation project. The change is superb, with the old place getting a new façade, bathing in warm colors. The interiors are also brought back to life in decors full of life and color, while keeping some of the traditional elements, in a symbiosis full of personality, as one can easily notice in these next images.
What you see below was voted the best whole house remodel in 2015 by the home design Thisoldhouse.com. The story behind this process doesn’t come down to a series of décor changes, but is more ample and fascinating. The new owners moved the 100 year old house literally to a location at the core of nature where they started the renovation process. The house was extended, getting a supplementary level, while the interiors were injected extra energy and were modeled based on the needs of a modern family.
