Jim Cull recently send me a project in the Highlands neighborhood of Denver that he has completed which consisted of taking an otherwise unwanted cinder block cube and making it modern with a complete renovation and addition. The all white color pallet let’s the unassuming interiors feel large and spacious. I think it would be a total blast, well and pain to do a project like this. Make sure to check out the before picture.

    Nice. Really like these types of posts

    Love this place. You know what struck me that you never see in modern remodel photos? The doorbell in the hallway. Really, doesn’t anyone have smoke detectors? Never seen one.

    I am in the throes of working on refurbishing a 1951 modernist house – vertical cedar, stacked stone, mostly original – and am wondering if it would wreck the house to replace the rotting vertical cedar with horizontal cedar similar to what you have depicted. It is not an “iconic” design but is very true to the 1940s and 50s minimalist aesthetic. Also, the black door and trim is beautiful. Was all of it replacement or restoration with paint?

    David I think it would be fine to replace the cedar, I have posted this on my Facebook so hopefully some will offer their insights.

    I also have a similar question. I have a 60’s mid century with vertical cedar as well. The main feature of the house is a very large carport in front. I’ve been trying to get some other modernist’s feedback/opinion on using this unpainted vertical siding as a finish out for the ceiling of the carport (it was never framed in, the joists and plywood roof decking are not the most beautiful thing to look at). All that being said, what is the description/source of that horizontal siding in the photos

    Jason, it was a select grade 3/4″ x 2″ t&g cedar. The black doors are factory painted aluminum clad. Nothing in the house is original as the place was almost not worth saving. Glad you like it
