Modernizing a 1944 house as a DIY project is quite an ambitious undertaking. The couple that owns this property is all in and, as it comes together, the results are very exciting. The biggest change to the home is the kitchen, which was created by combining the original dining room and kitchen and now runs the entire width of the house. Exposed brick and original pine floors pair with white paint and wall tile, quartz countertops and new cabinetry, resulting in a wonderfully open and efficient space. Upstairs, a challenging bathroom and closet situation was reconfigured to fit a shower, vintage clawfoot tub and custom wood vanity. The bedrooms have charming details like sunny windows and closets tucked into the eaves. Future plans include rebuilding the front porch, replacing the vinyl siding and adding a deck across the back of the house. This property is a great example of what can be accomplished by rolling up your sleeves and getting to work!
