We renovated this 1960's split level ourselves. We put blood, sweat, tears, and a lot of scotch into this house. The outcome was a beautifully crafted house full of details and DIY.
After renovating our last house, we went to the other end of the spectrum and built a new home. It is our current house and we are learning so much as we give this builder's basic house the character that we desire in our spaces.
