Examples of Renovations
One of the principal objectives of the First Suburbs Coalition is to encourage the remodeling of post-WW II homes which are so prevelant in first suburbs. The Idea Book is one tool to show what can be done with a post-WW II home.
Another tool is this photographic evidence of what can can be done to add value and useability to post-WW II homes.
Exterior Rehab Gallery
Photos of exterior remodels. Communities can consider making changes to building codes and zoning ordinances that will encourage and accommodate residential rehabilitation in first-ring suburbs.
The First Suburbs Coalition offers a photo tour featuring the interior of remodeled homes built in the post-WW II period. These homes have been updated to meet the needs of today's owners.
