I see a home renovation in our neighborhood and I can't help but be politely curious. However, if it's a Mid-Century home I am an all out stalker. This house is about 5 blocks away from us. I've been watching it for a while. It went on the market for about a day and then the for sale sign came down and the chain link fence went up. I feared it would get demoed because the house has no back yard. Zilch. Seriously the house is about 20ft from the neighbor's fence. But it does have a massive front yard which was filled with loads of trees and thick ivy. I figured someone would prefer to reconfigure the large corner lot. But instead it's getting what seems like a marvelous redo and a major extension to the sides. I'm guessing the square footage has doubled. The ivy is gone and the trees have been thinned out. The front is getting some sort of exterior living space that looks to be blending well with the house's Mid-Century lines. I'm dying to go inside. I'm actually dying to see the plans and drawings. If only I had some sort of architectural press pass, was taken seriously and allowed to do an interview. One day... Anyway, the house is looking beautiful and I'm excited to see it develop!
