|Last year my partner and I bought a used and abused 1947 cape-cod to rehab. Although it's a mid-century house in the suburbs of D.C., we still consider it our "Old Homestead!"
So far we've jacked up floors, completely gutted and remodeled the kitchen, worked on plumbing and electrical stuff, redone 2 of the 4 bedrooms, regraded and put in a patio, built a shed, and more. Although we've done a lot, our to-do list is still enormous!
Anyone else out there working on a mid-century (1940s-1960s) house? What kinds of problems have you run into as you update your home? Has anyone out there kept the mid-century style/colors/materials?!
