We bought our dream house in our dream location, and by "dream house", I mean a house that needs to be gutted to the studs to make it our actual *dream* house! It's a 1966 ranch style home that we want to make a Cape Cod/Ranch/Traditional/Modern mix of a house.
The house is 2356 square feet on a 12,000 square foot lot. We are adding about 270 square feet to the master bedroom and bathroom and gutting almost the entire house to the studs. It's my dream come true. Hopefully, we make it through this crazy process!
