Remember 8050 Shay Drive? It was the time-capsule house we visited a few years ago. It turns out that friends of friends bought it and we've gotten to know the (new) owners a bit. Well... families grow and things change and they're moving again and the house is for sale and open this weekend and next. Check it out!
The house when we first saw it was frozen in time — the 50 year old dishwasher and oven had never been used. Calvin and Kimberly have made a few updates for livability. For instance — although neat — that 50-year-old, never-run dishwasher would blow up on the first run due to dried-out hoses and gaskets. A new oven, dishwasher and refrigerator now grace the kitchen. However, most of the rest of the house is original — very original — which is quite a rare find.
The updates that have been done have been very true to the ethos of the house and they hope that the new owner can be the same sort of steward that they have been. We hope so, too.
