Thank you all for joining in! I am so happy to share Shane and Juli Zimmerman's home of our downtown community.
Can you tell us a little of what you know about your home?
Our home is a craftsman style home built in 1927. It is just under 2300 sf. It has a half basement that is used as a laundry room and double detached garage.
What is your favorite thing about your home?
Of course the location of our home is perfect. But the spaces in the home seem to be laid out to our specific needs. Whether we're cooking, reading a book, playing guitar or watching a movie.
What brought your family to downtown?
The community in which we live in is unparalleled to any other. Our friends and neighbors make downtown living a unique and charming experience. Being downtown offers us the chance to walk to work daily.
Did you make any additions/remodel/changes to the home?
In our two years of residency we have added new wood flooring throughout and redone some of the existing. We have also done a complete master bathroom remodel. During the remodel phases we have used the upstairs bedroom and the current dining room for sleeping quarters.
What is one of your favorite things to do in downtown?
Being able to walk to the heart of downtown and seeing so many people we know as well as a lot of new faces is pretty special. The new bike trails and walking paths are also easily accessed.
Name a couple of favorite pieces in your home and if you have a story behind them to include that would be great as well.
We like using odd pieces for different uses other than their intended. We have a 1956 Weber grill that has never had a fire in it that we use as a table. Our headboard is an old shaker style door from a remodel I did in downtown Rogers over 15 years ago. Our art pieces we feel are unique to our personalities and tie the house together.
