Hello everyone! I am currently in escrow on a home here in northern California. The house needs a lot of work and my girlfriend and I absolutely love this website, so we thought it would be fun if we let the Houzz.com community make all of the design/remodeling decisions on our new home! We're talking everything from living room to playroom, kitchen to bathroom. Even the outdoor pool area and detached shop are open for input. Updated pictures to come upon close of escrow, but to give you an idea of what we're working with, I've included a few photos below.
A bit about the house: It sits in the middle of 6 wooded acres. 3600 sq ft 4 bed/3bath. Not included in the footage is a finished playroom/exercise room (300-400sq ft). It was custom built in 1989 by a retired engineer, so it has a unique split level layout.
The plan is to post 1 project/room at a time. We will show pictures of how it looks right now and then open it up to the HOUZZ community for suggestions. The post with the most likes will be the design we choose for that project/room.
To start, here are a few pics of the house as it looks today.
We would like to start with the red dining room pictured here. It has brand new hardwood floors that aren't bad, but everything else can be improved upon.
We are looking forward to all of your great suggestions!
