This mid-century modern home was built in 1927 with a major upgrade in the 1960s when the roofline and windows were changed. It was originally a duplex which was then converted into a single family residence. Like a typical old home, there were a lot of doors and closed up rooms. The biggest challenge with this home was how to bring the outdoors in and create better flow between all of the living spaces. We called this the Flintstone house due to the exterior rocks on the front of the house. When it came time to remove the exterior rocks, we allotted a full day for chipping and removing of rocks. What we didn't know was that the rocks weren't even real rocks and came down in one big sheet, all in about 30 minutes! We added on an additional 420 sq. ft to make a proper master bedroom with ensuite bathroom. This home has now been upgraded from top to bottom, with new plumbing, electrical, windows, and flooring. The back part of the house flows into the large backyard that was once closed off from the rest of the home.
