Updating a 70 s split foyer

Then you go up a few stairs where there’s a master bedroom and….oops…the hell happened to the other bedrooms?

If you decide to do this and worked on it a few hours a day, you could complete the project in just a few days.

It took me a long time, but that was only because I only did a little bit each night, then the holidays came around and I put the project on hold.

But now 15-30 years later, are we stuck with a bunch of tear downs?

We’re thinking the rage for mid-century modern has just about run its course, and something else will have to take its place. While we loved the idea of a small, vintage house in a great neighborhood full of old trees and great restaurants and independent bookstores and one-of-a-kind shops, we knew that just wouldn’t work for the lives we’re really living.

We think the suburban split-level may be a house whose time is coming, and we want to tell you why–so you can get in while the gettins’ good.
