I recently took a look at the top 12 in ’12 stories about readers and their remodeling and decorating projects. Now — let’s take a look at the other most popular stories on readers’ hit parade. Everyone loves the fantastic time capsules houses that I feature — and almost to a one, readers deserve the credit for spotting these and sending their emails. The most popular time capsule story this year was the Tennessee time capsule house – kitchen shown above. Morever, this story continued into a saga, as reader Pam bought this very kitchen and put it into her house. Onward for the other 11, top stories of the year –>

We took a look inside this wonderful 1938 time capsule Tudor house — original owner lived here at least 72 years. And guess what: Someone in San Francisco spotted it on the blog — they were in the market for a house in Portland — they rushed right up — and they bought it! They love all the original features and plan very minimal changes. Yes! We helped connect a reader to a time capsule house o’ their dreams. Woot!
