“Probably about one-quarter of my customers are those with older children who don’t want to move out of their homes,” Olson says. “But those who do say this is something they’ve waited for all their lives.”
Some homeowners who decide on renovation rather than a purchase try keep a part of the old structure that made their house unique.
Elizabeth Shanks wanted to keep a piece of a stained glass window “as a form of transition from the old into the new. We put it in a foyer—it’s not on an outside wall, but it looks like a church window and you can also see it from the dining room.”
“This is our version of nirvana,” David Shanks says.
