Service Station

All 21 windows were broken or rotted, and there were 70 years of grease and grime on the cement floors, but to Marshell and Donna Love, this 1920s Sinclair gas station in Irving, Texas, looked like home. The Loves preserved the original structure—down to the green-and-red color scheme. For two DIY years and all of about $15,000, they made the necessary repairs, added central heat and air, and replaced the knob-and-tube wiring to get their station pumping.
