1930 | Mod Bungalow

 

817 N. 9TH AVENUE, PHOENIX

Sometimes I come across a house that just blows me away for its funky-cool DIY renovation. Such is the case with this 1930s bungalow that I got the chance to see the other day. The current owner did all the renovations herself using many found and upcycled materials including the uber-cool steel kitchen cabinets and the stainless wet bar. I just love the exposed brick, barn wood back splash in the kitchen, and the variety of colors and finishes!

URGENT ALERT! 1909 | Knipe House

I am still under the weather (but getting better) and I came across an article by Anna Chryssovergis from the AZ Republic about the Historic Knipe House. This Roosevelt Row home was built in 1909 and was the home of a prominent Phoenix architect. It was saved from demolition by community activists and the city of Phoenix and represents one of the few remaining homes that was once part of a vibrant neighborhood. The city of Phoenix is looking for a buyer who will restore the home — preserving the character of the turn-of-the-century bungalow. Read the whole article here, and pass it along to any of your preservation-minded friends who are looking for a great property to buy and breathe new life into.
