Ranch To Bungalow?

I got the latest issue of Fine Homebuilding in the mail today. Their annual "houses" issue features a cover story on transforming a ranch style house into a Craftsman Bungalow. Hmmm, it’s like deja vu all over again…

Seriously, they did a pretty good job. I especially like the fireplace nook and the half-height walls with columns. I’d really like to add that feature to our house, but I can’t figure out where it would fit. FH rarely includes costs with larger projects, but they did this time: $260,000. Ouch!

Still, it's a nice house and a reinforcement that we're heading in the right direction. Who knows, maybe in two years our house will be FH worthy...
