Dream of the Untouched Mid-Century Actualized

By Gavin Shettler, October 1, 2018

Katherine and Jesse had been looking for a home that was in the city, but also a retreat…surrounded by trees and greenery.

They found just the spot in Milwaukie, OR. In fact, they found that rare, untouched mid-century. The home they bought has had one owner since it was built in 1962. The owner had kept the house in great condition over the years, but never did any kind of updates. The perfect situation for a family ready for a big remodeling project. The split level time capsule is brimming with potential. Katherine and Jesse are excited about their adventure of bringing the house up to modern standards without loosing the mid-century character.
