Welcome! This lovely well-built 1960s ranch home was going to be demolished after being vacant for a time. The owners let us tour the house and although it needed some TLC, I loved the simple one level layout, large kitchen and dining area, the cozy window seat in the living room and the mid-century front door. So although we’d never discussed moving a house before, it seemed like a good idea. We would give this old and well-loved family home a new life and a make-over. So myself, an artist and retro picker along with my husband and family are taking on the task (with help) of relocating, renovating and decorating this house in mid-century style…and on a budget. I will be posting all of our progress with lots of photos of the before and afters. And I’ll be sharing my searches for all of the products and décor along with some vintage product information from my growing library of vintage magazines and decorating books. Slowly but surely this dated retro ranch will become our beautiful home. Enjoy!
