I couldn’t be happier to share the news that our home is featured in the Family Album section of the Fall 2012 issue of American Bungalow!

Those of you who are familiar with the magazine will recognize the Family Album section, where readers submit pictures of their home with a short blurb about the story behind their bungalow.

That’s us in the top row – second from the right!

It’s a little tough to read, so here is the text that appears in the magazine:

We purchased this 1917 Craftsman Bungalow in 2009 and have been lovingly restoring it ever since.  The family we bought it from had lived here since the mid-1960’s and the kitchen and bathrooms were “modernized” in that era.  Among other projects, we’re currently working with designers on a plan that will return them to their original splendor.  The house is located in the Laurelhurst Neighborhood of Portland, Oregon.  The neighborhood, which is home to countless charming bungalows of all types, was designed by the renowned landscape architecture firm of The Olmsted Brothers.  To follow our restoration progress, please visit us at www.TheCraftsmanBungalow.com.

As it reads on the magazine cover banner, American Bungalow is “the magazine published in the interest of preserving and restoring the modest American 20th Century home, the bungalow, and the rich lifestyle that it affords.”  It’s published four times annually and it’s always an exciting day when the new issue arrives in our mailbox.  This time it was just a little more exciting…
