Before and After: An 80’s Home Turns Rustic Refined in Littleton, Colorado

When I first saw this home, it was a 1980's suburban dream.  Except it was 37 years later and now we all know the good and the bad that comes with living in the suburbs and frequently the word "dream" is excised from that slogan.   (You can see more of this renovated, Littleton, Colorado… Continue reading Before and After: An 80’s Home Turns Rustic Refined in Littleton, Colorado
