This message from Loren and Amber came to me one day when I was feeling down, and it made me so so happy. We pass it along to all retro renovation readers today. Thank you L&A And everyone, be sure to check into their blog always available via the blogroll.
Pam, Greeting again from Oregon. I am sending along a few pictures of my great grandmothers home in The Dalles, Oregon. Built in 1955 she lived in it until her death in 1998 when she was 80 years old. Our family spent three generations playing in and around this house and when she died it was passed along to her daughter (my grandmother). We now use the house as a sort of retreat for family renuions, holidays, or just as a place to get away. My wife and I are of course mid century nuts so we go the house more often than anybody else and so recently I thought it was about time to take some pictures of it.The home features a main level with the standard kitchen, living room, two beds, and one bathroom. The cool part, however is the basement which has a rec room, workshop, and another full kitchen. Please note the pink bathroom, I thought of you whilst taking the photos!
Enjoy, Loren and Amber Petersen
