When Jordan and Annie Obermann walked into 1129 Robertson St. last spring, they looked around and said, "let there be light."
OK, not really.
But the Fort Collins couple — and owners of the local home design build firm, Forge + Bow — did transform the home's 2,800 square feet from boxy and dim to open and bright.
Walking through the 1960s University Acres ranch-style home Thursday, Jordan Obermann pointed out where they knocked down walls, moved entryways and added windows to transform the space into Forge + Bow's specialty: a dream home.
As they wrap up the home's finishing touches and prepare to get it on the market, the couple is also preparing to watch their work on the small screen.
The Obermanns will be featured in a pilot episode of their potential show "House Perfect," airing on HGTV at noon Sunday. The pilot will feature the couple's 10-week renovation of a 1940s home in East Old Town.
Local: Could this FoCo couple be the next Chip and Joanna?
If the pilot does well, it might be shuffled around to different time slots. They might be asked to shoot another pilot, and it could turn into a show. It could also turn into nothing, the couple said.
"We were just kind of waiting for the door to close throughout this process — from day one," Jordan Obermann said. "It's been a year and a half of moving forward and we keep waiting for the door to close and it hasn't yet, which is crazy that we've gotten this far."
