The changes to this house seem lovely, but did the house land in Oz? Why show the "before" condition in black and white and the "after" in living color? This house (or any house) might look better without any changes, just by adding color to the photo. It's like those facelift commercials, where they go from black and white to color, change the frown to a smile and voila! 10 years younger! Give your readers some credit and change only what was really changed.

I really think some of you guys are 'reading' too much into things here. I can answer the questions about why not build new etc.... because this is what THEY wanted! Becky can't explain every decision that was made and what thinking led to it in a brief description. I'm thankful to people at houzz for giving us a glimpse and to the owners for letting us see their gorgeous home. This tudor (and it is still a tudor IMO) is now one of my personal favorites.

Impressive design, very compact look ... It has less flexible for expansion and remodels ... That is what it's for though! Great!

For those wondering what the guest house looks like from the main house I'd be willing to bet you wouldn't even see it. I doubt you'd see it before getting to the top of the stairs. So...you wouldn't have worry about going "batty" looking at all that "rusting metal between the main house and the lake".

Perhaps most of the host's guests arrive by boat since it's located on Lake Washington.

Pocket doors are a great design feature that can help open up a room with limited space. Pocket doors can add style to a room while also providing privacy to an area.

We use either pocket doors or surface mounted doors on exposed tracks, depending on the application. I love the look of the exposed track hardware, but you need clear wall space to the side of the door opening in order to make it work. The door then becomes a design feature. A pocket door essentially disappears when open, so you can create a greater flow of space.

Live in a very warm climate - so thankfully don't have to do most of this! Except repainting and checking caulking/seals. Just bought a new place on a slab and the weep holes need to be re-drilled and it has no insulation but will be installing it.
