It's like Kurt Cobain said, "Wanting to be someone else is a waste of who you are." This house could only be traditional if the home mostly rebuilt. That roofline will never say "traditional" and that is an expensive decision. Where the poor remodel decisions didn't live up to the soul of its modern roots, the proposal sketch shows some remedies that are true to what this home is. Not only is this a well sized home near a park and close to a walk-able main street, the mid-century style fits the eclecticism of an older part of a small town.
Enthusiastically embracing the original style pays off.
