When a young family found this ranch home in the Old Leawood neighborhood of Kansas City, it needed lots of work. With the help of the architects at local firm Hufft Projects, the home was renovated from what you see above. Click on through the gallery for some "after" views:
The renovation still allows the old to read through the new, but everything's been updated to reflect the home's new inhabitants. Broad white walls are dotted with large-scale artwork, the exterior has been transformed with a boxy wood-clad addition, and huge windows open up to a backyard that's a favorite playspot for neighborhood children.
