Drab to Fab: Suburban Ranch Home Goes Modern

Some prefer to buy move-in-ready homes that require little work, but not this couple. Joel and Heidi Allen purchased a tiny foreclosure with an extensive renovation in mind.

The couple turned this boring 1970s suburban ranch into a beautiful modern home. The renovation included the addition of two carports, a larger entryway and kitchen, and even a second story with lake views. The most amazing part? Joel and Heidi did most of the work themselves. Now that’s impressive.
