Hey Detroit! We Want To See Your Renovated Homes

We want to showcase your best home makeovers

Michelle & Chris Gerard

Detroit is filled with beautiful old homes, many of which need someone to put in the time and the effort to restore them to their original glory. (Or just make them inhabitable again, in some cases.) At some point in our lives we've all renovated something, and we know you have stories!

Next week we're running our first-ever Renovation Week, and we want to see and hear about your renovation experiences. Whether you've restored your historic home, overhauled your decor (now everything is midcentury modern), transformed your weed-filled yard into a stunning garden, or cleaned up your street or block, we want to see it, before and after.

Post your renovation before-and-after photos on Instagram with #Curbed, share them with your stories in the comments below, or send an email to

What were the challenges you faced? Did your contractor quit halfway through? Were you thousands of dollars over budget? Or did everything go according to your painstakingly laid out plans (ha!)? What is your favorite part of the final results? If you did it all over again, what would you change?

During Renovation Week, we'll round up the best contributions and post them right here on Curbed.
