What a 1950's Bargain (or is it?)

Not having been born (or even a twinkle in my Mother’s eye) in the 1950’s, I’m not sure if this is a good price or not, but it seems phenomenal to me these days. I was particularly interested in the front of the house and 1950’s landscaping! It’s amazingly difficult to find any (if you have any sources, I’d be thrilled!)

The interior photos are fantastic (I have a few more) and I could post interior 50’s photos forever.

Speaking of which we’re redecorating – we’re going to rehang all of our pictures. We have a very “arty” look to the house (definately not really 50’s) but we try to stay fairly close to the period.

I desperately want to get rid of our iron “security” door and so I’m interested in all sorts of front door areas….. Hopefully this

Best renovation strategies – or how to start a controversy

Based on this article which ran a while ago (although it was published in February so it’s even older than that) –  this makes for a fantastic discussion among re-modelers and preservationists. If you read the article in the link, they did research and then tried to make the remodel look progressive. In preservation, we’ve certainly run into a lot of this on the road with mid-century motels where they have to keep it looking
