kitchen was taken on by Jennifer of J Jorgensen last spring.   the result was a two tone enamel with bold on the bottom and pillowy on the top.  lighting went modern with oaky notes to stay bungalow.

the upper level is the sleeper portion of 1922's curb appeal.  As soon as you reach the upper landing, the headroom as gracious as a two story- with built in cabinetry from bow to stern.  

attic finishing typically leaves a ton of waster space, not here.  Knee walls are accessed in bath, hallway, guest room to house linens, decor & off season items.  Storage of this magnitude is rarely seen in 20s bungalows.

chimney exposed is our favorite remodeling move, that brick stamp ensures this space has been through a sound mental mind.

the chest of drawer bank and pocket door are all fabulous remodaling plays in your bungalow attic.

rarities abound in the captains quarters:  storage is wall to wall with pocket doors, south facing light is all day long, and steps to the east find you outside on the lovers deck over looking the back greenspace.

the main floor bedroom is setup perfectly as a media den, removing the racket from the main living space.

the greatest asset the american bungalow is the generosity of its foundation size.  unlike early two stories, the bungalow is commonly nearly a 1000' on the footprint.  

garage features an additional 8' wide full length shop space, akin to the hobbyist bike couple :)

come join us tomorrow for a mimosa open, and the house spotify mix that will be curated by the owner himself, brack is a the protégé composer that launched grey ghost music.
