Bravery kudos

If you’re one of those brave souls who would walk into a house for sale built in the 1920’s, worn with age and run down by the stories of owners past, and you’d say, ‘I’ll take it!’, kudos to you!

Make it livable

Then comes the part where you have to make it more…livable. Many people think gutting the house and replacing everything with today’s latest and greatest will make its character pop out of the 20’s and Charleston its way into the new millennium.

These homes were made for the lifestyle of the 1920’s family, but surprisingly enough, we can easily integrate that into our 21st century lifestyles without compromising the charm and integrity the house has kept throughout the decades.

This is why we’re excited for one of our next projects. Eco-Modernism is getting ready to start work on a kitchen and addition to a 1920’s home in an area of historically preserved homes in Raleigh.

The homeowners, who are indeed a couple of brave souls, enjoy the charm of their newly purchased abode in a much sought after neighborhood, but need something a little more practical for their family in the way of kitchen space, appliances, cabinetry, etc.

They have been working closely with a local historic preservationist to follow the guidelines of renovating in a historic home and are now working with us at Eco-Modernism to give them a modern kitchen that meshes with the rest of the house.

Keep reading the blog to see updates as the space progresses…
