Just a couple of updates on some of these. This one just got featured in Houston House and Home for September. It's on the cover. If you flip through the on-line magazine version, there are some great pictures. including the "Kit Kat Lounge" upstairs. There is mention on page 8 and then the article starts on page 56.

There is a good set of pics and write up by Pam with retro renovation on the house with the round room, which just landed in good hands.

Two doors down, the "Sputnik House" also landed in sympathetic hands.

That first home is very well appointed. The second home...not so much. Of course the Sputnik house is totally gorgeous. Thanks for your great posts, very enjoyable.

Yes, the second house is fabulous. One of the sellers had a vision for the house, and her heart was definitely in the right place, but life and health issues had gotten in the way & she never got to do what she wanted with it.

Another update. The pic of the cool mod house at the bottom of page 7 of the thread, that one just came out of rehab. The new owners restored it and now are in the process of bit by bit, still trying to acquire the right pieces of furniture for it. They won an award from Preservation Houston and the house was featured on a local site. Be sure and look at the photo gallery on the link.

Every now and then we win one.

Love the shots of it lit up at night. That's when MCM houses look their best!
