My uncle, Charlie Ham, is a house flipper out in Palestine, Texas. He has really great taste and a good eye for what works and what doesn’t work on a house flip. While visiting family at Thanksgiving, I got to tour his latest purchase. It is straight out of “Mad Men”. These are the “before” pictures. I can’t wait to see what he does with this house!
It sits on a 1.5 acre treed lot. This is a winter time picture, so you can imagine the yard in full bloom.
The interior is original 1950’s. Check out the vintage stove.
For a small kitchen, it has a lot of cabinet storage.
This is a neat banquette.
This wallpaper was probably the hip thing in 1955.
Close up of the wallpaper.
Ok – here’s the “Mad Men” kitchen set. Same countertops and style of cabinets.
The living room / dining room combo.
This is a little tv room / den. This exact paneling is in the “Mad Men” tv room.
This wallpaper looks like something you might see now but it is original to the home.
The second bedroom. More wallpaper…
This is a little half bath. I guess it was designed so that one could sit on the toilet and wash hands at same time?
The neighborhood is really pretty. This is the home next door.
Stay tuned for the “after” photos.
