This 1922 home has contemporary style, thanks to a remodel. This summer, a family of five moved in. We took a tour with Angie Behr and she explained why this house is the perfect mix of both her and her husband’s style.
Meet Angie Behr: Originally from Detroit Lakes, Behr is a teacher at Park Christian School. She is also a mother of three. In her spare time, Behr loves to go antiquing. She also collects old dishes.
“My husband’s style is modern, and mine is not.” – Angie Behr
One of Behr’s favorite things about the kitchen is the exposed brick. Meanwhile, her husband likes the use of corrugated metal and stainless steel appliances. However, they both appreciate the industrial light fixtures.
In the dining room, Behr uses an original built-in to display her dish collection. “Some of it is my husband’s great grandma’s, some of it is my great grandma’s,” she explained.
The living room still has the original fireplace and built-in shelves.
This sliding barn door leads to a walk-in closet and master bath.
The second floor has two more bedrooms. In his room, one of Behr’s sons showed us how to sit in an antique rocking chair.
The Behr’s house also includes a finished attic and lower level. In the basement, Angie Behr has a workshop where she stores all of her craft supplies. Meanwhile, the attic houses her daughter’s room as well as a schoolroom for her eight-year-old son.
