Won’t You Be My Neighbor – West Allis, Wisconsin

By MidModMichelle

Hello again folks! It’s another Sunday Funday and today we have an awesome time capsule home brought to us by reader Kate W. The reader submissions have really been knocking it out of the park! This home was built in 1970 and the owners have done a lovely job restoring it with very few updates. The price is also quite reasonable for such a well kept home. Let’s take a look!

BACKYARD

I’d take this one in a heartbeat if it wasn’t so cold in Wisconsin! What did y’all think? The winters would probably make me really appreciate having carpet. The only things I’d switch out would be the kitchen countertops/flooring and the front door. How cool would a mod door painted a bright color look?

    Just gorgeous! I agree with the changes you suggested. Plus, I might have to try to find some retro appliances for the kitchen. All in all, though, I could move right in with no problem. 🙂

    I’d take the dining room table with the house! I love the family room with its polished floor and that fireplace. All in all it’s a wonderful home, to me it gives off a scandinavian vibe with the ceiling and beams.
