I think they're great. I love the ingenuity and style - they feel fresh and attractive. Some older homes are worth preserving as a time capsule - many are not. We need to be flexible and adapt our dwellings for the times we live in. I bet these revamped homes are all better insulated, fire rated and probably more energy efficient!

It's MAGICAL. Living with the old and new. Old times, modern living. Love it. I bet the families love their new spaces. Great article too.
