Let me introduce myself. I'm Liz...I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan...and I'm into 1950s/60s ranch houses-- BIG TIME. This is a place to share my love for mid-century EVERYTHING...but with a focus specifically on the ranch houses in my neighborhood. We just bought a 50s ranch (1957 to be exact) last fall and I've discovered there are many really cool houses in our new neighborhood (many with original owners). I'm hoping that I can get to know some of my neighbors well enough that they will let me photograph the mid-century details of their home. I'm not really sure how this project will go as some people may feel weird about letting me do this. However, I just feel this drive to document because the original details of these homes are disappearing FAST! My hope is that the pictures I take can be resources for those in the future interested in re-creating or preserving their mid-century homes! For this first post, I'm going to share pictures of the outside of our house. I would like to paint our house sometime in the future (not the stone, just the house) but for now it is what it is!
