Hooked on This Remodeled Craftsman Bungalow

by hookedonhouses on February 26, 2009

Here’s what I’m hooked on today–this charming Craftsman Bungalow that I spotted over at Lookiloos. I love everything about it, from the front porch to the pergola in back. The entire home was lovingly renovated. There are “secret hiding spots” on each floor, like a hidden room off one of the bedrooms, and another underneath the stairs. There’s even a clever hide-away for the dog food bowl in the kitchen!

Go to Lookiloos to take the full house tour. Be sure to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page to see the entire slideshow. If you like Craftsmans as much as I do, then you won’t want to miss a single photo.

Now it’s your turn to tell us what you’re hooked on today! If you have something to share with us on your blog, then add your link below.

i love all the windows on the first floor. the masterbed room was nice. but i personally…..love more mirrors. not many mirrors in that house. ;) and the dog bowl. unreal. my dog is like a little hog. she would have never kept that area so clean. its a cute idea. but, it wont rock in my house. the piglet needs to be messy. infact when she is a little ticked at us she kinda spreads her food around the kitchen.

Coty Farquhar February 27, 2009 at 3:37 am

Hi Julia,

Well I’m back, I hope I have done all the right things to link to you this week, last time I was lost in the system. Drop over and have a look, however you do have to scroll down through a few of my images to get to my post section, it’s just the design of my blog.

I,m hooked on so many things at the moment, especially bogging and blogging parties. I have a post on beautiful old images of vintage hats, I love them.

Have a great weekend,

Okay….so I haven’t quite figured this out yet! How to link to my post WITHOUT just linking to my whole blog! So I linked twice, because I couldn’t figure out how to go back in and fix it or delete it, on your site. I am so sorry! You have to help me again. Please email me, if you can and tell me what I should be doing!

Aubrey February 27, 2009 at 11:48 am

Oh man, houses like that make me wish I were rich and could have the perfect house where someone else did all the work for me. That was such an awesome remodel.

hookedonhouses February 27, 2009 at 12:35 pm


A lot of people are having trouble with this today, so don’t feel bad. I’ve had to delete quite a few links because they weren’t inserted correctly, or they were the main blog address instead of the permalink to the post. If there’s a mention of Hooked on Fridays and a link back somewhere on the blog, then I edit it for them. If I can’t find any sign of which post they meant to link to, I have to delete it.

I know it’s confusing to a lot of people until they’ve done it a few times. To get the permalink, all you should have to do is right-click on the title of the post you want to link to, copy, and then paste into the Mr Linky.

If anyone is still confused, click on the link I put on the word “permalink” in the post, which will take you to a more detailed explanation of what it is and how to copy and paste it.

Thanks for joining the party! :-)

what a great idea putting a dog bowl in a drawer, very clever. I thought the wooms with nothing on the windows looked a bit cold, it must be strange at night…and the home owner scared me with his pale white skinny legs….

I’m baaa-accckkk. I’ve missed you. :-) Isn’t this house a peach?? I have to say, I love the Craftsman style…and since we were in Colorado, I kept telling Mike he needs to work on retiring (’cause I’m nowhere near being able to make that happen!) so we can live in a Craftsman in the mountains with our dog(s). (We’d get more dogs if we were in the mountains, natch. ;-) So I’ll have to show him this house to gently guide him…I love Lookiloos so I’m sure I’ll love the house.

SO close but NO cigar. I want them to have had wood/stained trim instead of white painted and a prep sink in the island. And use a creamy pale white (like Benjamin Moore Greek Villa)on the walls instead of yellow, and plop it down in MY neighborhood and sell it to me at a price I can afford. THEN it would be perfect!

kthnxbye March 2, 2009 at 5:41 pm

I mean to say the trim in the rest of the house, not the kitchen. The kitchen color scheme is nice! Perfect if it only had that prep sink. ;-)

riza @ kitchen drawer organizers May 5, 2011 at 4:23 pm

The house really looks good! I want to have such house model, although it is called remodeled. I thought of somewhat like renovation of my house to look it spacious and very anew. Thanks much for the idea!
