We’re continuing our interior look at the transformation of the SoMoToHo. Everything is going smoothly with the sale and shortly this home will belong to someone else. We hope that they will love it as much as we have loved creating it.
Let’s start in the library:
Now we move on to the dining area.
Here are a few of the family room:
And now for the kitchen:
I’ll close with another shot of the exterior, just to say goodbye with.
We’re very proud of the way this transformation turned out – I’m a lucky guy to be married to someone with Debra’s vision. We don’t know yet what the next project will be but, whatever it is, I hope you’ll come along with us – you make it much more fun!
It’s time to step inside the SoMoToHo and show some pics of the interior transformation. Again, thanks to Trey Freeze for his lovely photographs and thanks to Shawn Cowdin for his help in bringing about this metamorphosis. So – without further ado and in no particular order, here we go.
We’ll continue our tour of the SoMoToHo interior in the next post – I hope you’ll come along for the rest – we love sharing this journey.
I mentioned in the last post that, by the time you read it, the SoMoToHo would be on the market. It’s now under contract. Debra and I are so grateful to have had the opportunity to transform this home into something beautiful – like a caterpillar into a butterfly (couldn’t resist the chrysalis reference). And we really appreciate that you joined us in the adventure!
So. As promised, here are some before and after pics. I’m limiting this post to the exterior. In the next post, I’ll move to the interior. It may take a couple of posts to finish with the before and afters.
Many thanks to Trey Freeze for his wonderful camera work.
It has been awhile since my last post. Debra and I decided to escape the Texas heat and head WAY south – Buenos Aires and Montevideo. Here is a shot of Debra enjoying the cold weather and admiring the Puente de la Mujer by Calatrava in Puerto Madero, BA. If you’ve been to Dublin, you’ll find this bridge to be familiar. Same architect. Here’s a shot of the one in Ireland:
See what I mean?
In any event – in addition to escaping the heat, we’ve been working furiously on the SoMoToHo getting her ready to sell. In a few days, I’ll do a “before and after” post with after photos by Trey Freeze, which are always a treat. In the meantime, I wanted to share the progress and some of the “little things” that go into getting a major project like this one ready.

In the last post, I mentioned that we were going to have some professional pictures taken of the LOAP Alpha. As you know, we typically have Trey Freeze do our professional shots. Trey was too busy (as many truly talented people are) to take the Alpha pics on the schedule that we needed, so we asked Matrix Tours to do the job. And a fine job they did. So here they are – let me know what you think! And, if you’re in the market for a spectacularly renovated 3/2/2 in west Fort Worth for an eminently reasonable price, give us a shout. We’d be tickled for this to be your new home!
That’s it for the LOAP Alpha. Thanks for going through this transition with us. It’s been fun – and gratifying. This home has lots of pleasure to give – it just had to be coaxed out of hiding. Soon, we’ll do another LOAP – since Limitless Opportunities are Always Present!
Next, though, we’ll go back to the SoMoToHo, where things are hap-pen-ing. Hope you’ll come along!
Whether you have one, two, three, or more “living areas” in a house, in order for it to be a home, at least one of them has to focus on comfort. The beautiful ruin (11th century) in the picture above is part of the Abbey on Inchcolm Island in the Firth of Forth in Scotland. Touring the Abbey, Debra and I tried to imagine (without resort to the printed guide or the placards – that’s cheating) what each of the spaces might have been used for .
