Open Concept 1960s Ranch Flip House AFTER Renovation

I designed a complete renovation and flipped a 1960s ranch house. This was a very popular house plan that had 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. You walked into the kitchen from the carport then entered the family room. The family room and living room were separated by a wall. The dining room was right off the kitchen and living room. We wanted to create an open concept plan and really breathe new life into this dark, lifeless house. All of the details are on my blog. Make sure to check it out there.

Now much better without a wall! This is the view from the dining room. Find out all the details of the floor plan changes on the blog.

    Okay, I am back to tell you again...awesome. You are so right about the lighting in the dining room, but what really sells it to me is the breakfast/keeping area. Post some picks of the kitchen when you can please.

    Terrific improvement. Am not a fan of panelling unless it is in the library of a French chateau or English manor.
