Behind a tall block wall just east of Seventh Avenue in Central Phoenix stands an architectural oddity. Among Yaple Park historic district's many ranch homes, this modern Rich Fairborn two-story house encased in curving redwood paneling and massive north-facing windows is getting a much-needed makeover.
That's thanks to Cavin and Claire Costello of the Ranch Mine, a design company that specializes in restoring and designing homes in historic and mid-century neighborhoods. On this warm March afternoon, the couple, 29 and 28 respectively, is seated at a table outside the home's kitchen, windows at their back. Dressed casually in button-down shirts and jeans, they're thinking back on when this project started a year ago.
