    beautiful transformation!

  • Bria Knowles

    Wow – THAT is insanity. Very cool post :)

  • Janel Harvey Johnson

    Great post! I cannot believe how the beams were rotted on the ceiling. Love the new mod look..but it is too bad they didn’t furnish in mid century, besides the noguchi hanging lamp.

  • David Bohnhoff

    stunner! amazing views. Well Done!

  • Joannabee

    Spectacularly beautiful afters. Having said that-still not sure I could live there (even if I could afford it) knowing what it was before. I’m sure there is absolutely nothing left from the hoard but it just creeps me out too bad!!

  • just me

    WOW!! What I would love to know is how much the renovation cost and how long it took.

  • john

    I think that’s a George Nelson style hanging light. :-)

  • Janel Harvey Johnson

    Ahh, yes. You’re right.

  • Sandra

    Gorgeous and wonderful that it was rescued in time!

    Wow! Sure is a beautiful transformation…. but must say, that wasn’t a hoarder that was just a plain pig….

  • Jodie Pickel

    I agree, the person/people who lived there were not hiarders they were just filthy pigs

  • Elaine

    Is this really the same house??? The after pictures are spectacular!

  • ShortSitedForSure

    That’s not hoarding. That’s just beyond filth … more like a mental case or two. I can’t believe someone would pay over $300k for it like that – even if you could almost triple your investment. Lots of work and money on the line. You couldn’t even an inspection to be able to evaluate the property before buying – though bulldozing would probably be the better option.

  • Joseph

    Stark before/after contrast, but is that interior really something to write home about? Prefinished bamboo floors and cheap “espresso” cabinets – are they “gonna party like it’s 1999?”
    Also, it’s too bad they painted over the beams; they were a prominent design feature, and are now sort of lost.

  • Guest

    That’s what I thought – why not just bulldoze it? The mold that must have been deep in the walls. *shudder*
