One Tudor home in Huntington Woods, Mich., has been restored to its original beauty after 19 years of remodeling. Mark Cohoon, the home's current owner, said the remodel took so long because he wanted to both maintain "a high standard of craftsmanship" in the home and "sweat the details," according to Judy Ross of the Detroit Free Press. Cohoon updated the home in several stages and his meticulously chosen improvements are found all over the home:

For each renovation he had tools built to duplicate original shapes. Some of these renovations were huge.

For example, the lower level has been transformed into a theater area, but instead of theater seats it's built like a big living room, sofas and chairs around a fireplace.

The style is vintage Arts and Crafts with a fireplace of Pewabic tile and head-high judges paneling with built-in bookcases, all built from quarter-sawn white oak.

"Each sheet was hand-selected from many, many sheets for a butterfly effect," Cohoon said. "The more time you spend in the room, the more you realize it's really beautifully executed."

The home is currently up for sale for $800,000. To see more images of the home, follow the link below.
