The 1964 midcentury home near Piestewa Peak was originally designed by Architect Fredrick Fleener as a McCall’s Magazine ‘Certified’ home.  The original architect worked with 21 women to design a home for the modern 1960’s family.  Over the years the home changed hands several times and the original materials and details had been obscured and altered.  The renovation consisted of stripping the house back to its original bones, a small 100 sf addition to the master suite, a complete makeover of the back yard and a room-by-room surgical renovation of the main home.  The extremely modest budget was stretched through the homeowner’s sweat equity.
