Before & After – Amazing Arapaho Hills “Restovation”

December 23rd, 2010 | 6 Comments | Posted in Gallery


This un-remuddle project has been three years in the making. I was really pleased when my clients purchased this house because I knew it would be in good hands, but I also knew it would be a labor of love to bring this house back. Kudos to Chris and Tiffany for their vision and patience!

Green Mountain Renovation

March 24th, 2009 | 2 Comments | Posted in Gallery

Many of you have asked to see  before/after shots from my clients’ homes. So here is the first of what will hopefully be hundreds…

Those of you who have been on my mailing list for a while may remember this 60’s raised ranch home on Green Mountain. Here are a couple of “before” pictures from the MLS:

This home is still a work in progress, but the owner did a major overhaul of the main floor. Here is a before and after from the livingroom. Hard to believe it is the same house.

I’m not sure what the faux wall finish was supposed to mimic, but the result was something akin to the inside of  a human intestine. Other then the decorative beams, there were no original details or finishes still intact. This home was a good candidate for a contemporary modern update.

The original brick fireplace was removed to open the entryway and bring more light into the livingroom. A large window was also restored in the livingroom. The original galley kitchen was rearranged and walls opened to the living and dining areas.
