Have you ever imagined of finding the perfect house in the perfect location? Well, if that happens to you, you should feel very lucky. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to find the right house for us in the best neighborhood. If that’s the case, it’s usually smarter to buy in the best location and transform a rough diamond into your dream home rather than buying a beautiful home in a not so good location. You can always renovate your home, but you can hardly ever change its location.
Take this charming cape cod, designed by Anthony Wilder Design/Build, Inc. for example. With a prime location, the best thing to do was to renovate the not-so-attractive interiors accordingly to the owners taste and needs.
This cape cod had a complete renovation including elaborate trim and molding, a spectacular outdoor living space reminiscent of a tree house getaway, a large addition and much more.
If you have found the right home, but need to find inspiration to transform it into something that can work for you, this cape cod renovation is full of great ideas and it might be just what you need to feel more confident with your reno! Let’s take a look.

Great usage of space!

According to the designer, the windows are custom removable and interchangeable. In this photo, the lower portion are glass inserts and the upper inserts are screen, but the homeowner has the option to make them all screen or all glass. Note: with a porch set up off the ground like this is recommended to keep the glass panels on the lower portion year-round for safety- especially if there are young children around.
What a dreamy outdoor space! It almost feels as if you’re in a tree house.
Fans are the “Minka Aire F519 Ceiling Fan”.
The decking is high pressure-treated premium-grade wood.
A TV outside? This is great for entertaining! Imagine having BBQ with your friends while they keep an eye on the game.

How are you doing today? I didn’t sleep well last night so I am feeling pretty sleepy right now. Do you know those nights you toss from one side to the other and feel like throwing a bucket of water on your husband because he won’t stop snoring? LOL
Oh, well… I guess I will try go to bed a bit earlier today. 🙂
I hope you have a fantastic day, full of fun and exciting moments!
Be safe, my friends. We”ll talk again tomorrow!
