My new livingroom, I made some changes to my living room. I tried to make it as pretty as possible. Please tell me what you think. Thank you, Living Rooms

Billiard Room With Exposed Brick, In 1840, when the Samuel W. Temple House was built, this had been a inset back porch which was at some point enclosed and then during the early 1980s was made into a studio apartment. There was single door going out onto- and four casement windows looking out onto the eastern yard. There was a very small bathroom, the plastic shower stall actually sat directly in front of one of the windows. When I purchased the home, roof system on the rear one-story wing of the house was basically nonexistent. The room had to be completely gutted, top to bottom, and rebuilt. I replaced the windows and added french doors. The exposed brick was in rough shape so I sanded and sealed it. With house being returned to a single family residence, I've turned this sunroom into a billiard room., Media Rooms

Kitchen Make-Over in Historic Home, Some before, during and after photos of the kitchen makeover in my last project house. The original "kitchen" was a 5' bank of cabinets along a single wall in what was more like a mudroom. The adjacent "dining room" is what I turned into the kitchen. This is another historic home (built in 1864). I think this modern kitchen meshed well into this beautiful, old house.

Mantle Makeover & Living Room Sneak Peak, A few before, during and sneak peak of the after pictures of my formal living room mantle. 

I am hooked on historic homes!! My current project is the Samuel W. Temple House, an upright and wing house that is Michigan State Landmark that is also listed on the National Register of Historic Homes. When I purchased and began work on the house a year ago, after having sat vacant for almost a decade, it had no viable electric, plumbing or heating services and roofs on the three separate one story wings of the house had failed. I'm in the process of renovating and restoring this glorious home., Living Rooms
