  1. Hi! I just discovered your site today. I too live in a raised ranch & are remodeling it...slowly, but surely. I can't wait to see the front with your new windows and doors. My husband is currently ripping out the kitchen (just in time for the holidays - haha). Best wishes with your remodel - Marjorie

  2. Hi, I have been following your progress, and am also very inspired.

    We are also embarking on our own 'extreme' raised ranch redo. It's 11 years overdue...but ours is a bit of a peculiar case. We live on Saratoga Lake, NY, on top of a hillside with a failing retaining wall holding up the bank. The foundation of the house is also completely defunct. The property is worth more without the house than with it!

    So, to stay on our land, we have to build a new retaining wall, jack up the house, tear out the old foundation and build a new one (becomes our walkout basement), and redo the whole bsmt. In the process, we will redo the entry by raising it and adding a gable and a porch (hopefully it won't look hokey), and putting on an addition on the side overlooking the lake with cathedral ceilings and a covered porch. We will also need to reconfigure some internal spaces, and hopefully gain a half bath in the main level, and higher ceilings in the lower level. Believe it or not, this still costs less than building new in our area... not by much, but at least I will be doing the environmentally correct thing, and still sending my kids to college! Hopefully, I'll remodel the rest of the house through time by infusing some cash every year into a new project.

    Anyway, wishing you the best on your renovation and looking forward to more picts and comments about your "new" old house.

  3. Hi Lina! What a project you've got there! holy bejeezus! Though I've never been on saratoga lake, my sister actually lives in saratoga springs - small world. my folks also have a house on lake george. I hope you blog about your progress too - i'd love to see it!
