a mid-century modern renovation and restoration of a Denver Harvey Park Lou Carey built Holiday Home

Closet flooor done. 


Downstairs Gigantic Closet

This weekend’s big project involved taking down some wonderful DIY closet work and three coats of white paint. 

Basement Bathroom

The crazy sink has been dismantled!! 


We had to do a fair amount of painting and caulking to get the old burgundy and blue gone. But the result is well worth the effort! We had electricians switch out the fixture as we never know what to expect in this special house of our’s. 


Found an old old post – with snow! That was never published.

We have been painting doors and baseboard and door trim – all pain in the butt!!!




And yes, a CRV can carry 16′ boards, in case you were wondering. 


 Hanging art


And now it is finally getting painted and caulked after getting installed many months ago


We finished a room!!

It maybe a small room but we are still proud 🙂

Bathroom tub refinished!


Basement Laminate

Installed some new flooring in the basement living room space this weekend. Still the baseboards to do, but feels much more finished already. 

Patio progress 

The patio had 4 different decent, but in matching pours of concrete. None of which was entirely mid-century style.  

Rather than remove it, however, we elected to dress it up.  

New covering and some cinder block planters.  

Some edging still to go.
