Vote For Your Favorite Renovation of the Week

New, 1 comment

We've seen some big renovations this week running the gamut of styles — there was a sunny double shotgun in Mid-City, a massive townhouse in the Lower Garden District, and a modern upgrade to a humble Uptown house. Now you can take our poll and pick which is your favorite, or rant in the comments about why you hate all of them!

Renovation 1: Mid-City shotgun double transformed into better shotgun double
In many renovations double shotguns are transformed into awkward singles, but this one decided to stay a double. The once blighted house got a sunny upgrade with a bright paint job outside and antique pine floors inside. Commenters took issue with the yellow paint, and one of you called the kitchen "awkward."




Renovation 2. Decaying LGD townhouse restored to glory

Once close to demolition, one of a pair of decaying LGD homes formerly belonging to a prominent New Orleans talent agent has finally undergone a massive restoration. You seemed to like this one, aside from the one commenter who called it "hideous."




Renovation 3: An Uptown home with a modern look and features

The once humble house got a big addition and modern makeover, both in terms of looks and features. One commenter said it's too pricey; another said it's more befitting of L.A. than La. Other comments criticize the white walls but praise the wrap-around porch. One of you made fun of me for using the phrase "statement piece staircase."
