I'm excited to share some finished photo's of a house I recently wrapped up!  This is a beautiful little 1950's ranch house located in Denver's Crestmoor neighborhood - an area filled with large trees and big yards.  Like many Denver neighborhoods, smaller, period homes co-exist here with supersized homes that are either new builds or over-sized pop-tops.  This… Continue reading Before and After: Ranch House Love in Denver
