Our Split Foyer Remodel to be Featured in Atomic Ranch!


I am thrilled to announce that our split foyer remodel will be featured in the Spring 2014 edition of “Atomic Ranch” magazine!  The feature article begins on page 58.  The magazine is available at Barnes & Noble.

Photo: We're celebrating here in the office the release of our 10th Anniversary issue (#41), which shipped out yesterday to all our subscribers and retail outlets.  The cover house is a spectacular Eichler from the City of Orange (Southern California).  Other features include "Blasts from the Past" which checks in with some of our earliest home owners. More stories come from Seattle, Chicago, Long Island NY and Palm Springs.  We've had our own blast for the last decade working on the magazine and hope you've enjoyed it too. Here's to another 10!

This quarterly publication caters to enthusiasts of mid-century ranch homes (1940’s to 1960’s), mid-century furnishings, and period ideas.  The magazine highlights interesting remodels and cost-effective remodeling ideas for ranch homes.  I wrote the story that will accompany our featured remodel, drawing in part on my prior posts on this blog (see especially “Split” Voting and previous posts).

To see the ‘before” home, click here.  In addition to small bump-out to the living room (which allowed us to achieve a sleeker facade), we replaced most of the windows, re-sided the home with T&G cedar (stained black), and completely gutted the kitchen, installing American black walnut “modular” cabinetry and new appliances.  The article should hit the newsstands (including Barnes & Noble) sometime in late February.  As always, I welcome feedback!

    Just got my brand new Atomic Ranch in the mail today. Love your addition! We live in a mid-century ranch in Charlotte that we bought almost 6 years ago. We have been slowly transforming it to a MCM. Our next bold step will be an addition. Any chance you would share floor plans before and after? I am looking for inspiration. Thanks

      I’m glad you enjoyed the remodel — I haven’t even received my own copy of AR yet, so you are ahead of me! I need to check with my architect re: before/after floor plans, but note that the only actual floor plan change involved a 4×12 bump-out to the side of the living room. That was the only interior alteration in terms of adding square footage (we redid the kitchen in the existing space). Most of the work was changing the appearance of the home exterior. I’ll see what I can do about getting those floorplans, and post them if I can. Thanks for the good feedback- and I hope your project goes well too.
