Craftsman Bungalow Renovation

http://heirloomdesignbuild.com/current-proje...

This 1920s Craftsman bungalow was converted into a duplex at some point during the 1960s. Over the years, the very cool architectural details of the house had fallen into disrepair. The pillars and columns were crooked, the concrete porch was cracked, and the wood was rotting from years of neglect.

Heirloom Design Build’s goal was to restore the home’s original charm. In addition, we wanted to add the comfort and convenience of the 21st century to the home’s interior, while retaining the historical character of the home’s exterior. We spent a good portion of this project deconstructing the changes to the home and recreating the original single-family layout.

To ensure the best outcome, we used top-quality building materials—the kind that are usually found in much larger and more expensive

    Very nice, clean lines. I love the contrast between the dark and light and the fact that you can use whatever you want for accent color. The only thing that looks a little odd to me is the brick chimney above the beautfiul white fireplace. Perhaps

    There are some beautiful old bungalows in the Seminole Heights and Tampa Heights area and even Ybor City area of Tampa, FL that would be great makeover candidates.
