Won’t You Be My Neighbor – The Frankenhouse Time Capsule

Okay, so not much today for time capsules, so we are going to play Frankenhouse today.  What’s Frankenhouse?  Well, it’s where I take aspects from a bunch of different houses until I get what I want, which is a perfect time capsule.  Is it cheating?  Maybe.  Is it my blog and can I do whatever I want?  Mmmmm…most definitely.

First of all, I want a completely adorable exterior, and this house in Essexville  ($119,000)is very cute.

Or maybe I should go with the exterior of this house in Midland ($169,900)?  I drive past this all the time, and I always drool over it.  Now it is for sale!

Either way, I am going with the dining room from the Midland house.  That room divider is so amazing, I almost can’t breathe. Whew.

For the kitchen, I am totally going with this house from Bay City ($114,900).  It is just screaming to make the Mid-Century Menu.  Check out those nice, light cabinets! All it needs is a better floor.

The bathroom needs to be classic pink, of course, like the one from this house in Bay City ($105,500).

And this can be my bedroom…or my craftroom…or the room I spend the rest of my life in.  Check out that floor! God! And the lights, so cool. From this house in Saginaw ($89,900).

Have a great Sunday!

    I love it! Particularly the craft room, which has that perfect melding of mid century and Twin Peaks that I adore.

    I would give my right arm for that room divider! Unfortunately, there’s nowhere in my house to put one.

    Love that spacious kitchen! Oh Ruth, you will have to rent the movie A Serious Man. The movie is okay, but the set design is fantastic. The segment on achieving the look of 1967 in the special features is worth the price of the rental.

    Envious! I’m loving all of the wood, and the little rounded shelving in the kitchen.
