Neglected to Perfected

Neglected to Perfected
Kelly’s husband thought she had lost her mind when they walked through this crumbling, water-damaged, termite-infested house and she exclaimed “I’ll take it!” Truly, most people would have turned back before they even made it through that front door. It was an intense year-long process of gutting it practically down to the nubs to get it to the beautiful point it is today. Now her husband is the one doing the exclaiming, as he’s been known to say, “they’ll have to carry me out of here feet first!” I agree sir. I agree.

    Wow – thrilled to see my house featured! It was definitely a labor of love and lots of drinking was involved! Looking forward to showing off the interior rooms!

    Being a realtor I love the worse house in the best neighborhood but my husband can’t get that yet.

    What a transformation! But I’ll confess that I kinda liked the blue door. 🙂

    Wow! I’d be happy enough just to sit on the porch and not even go inside! Beautiful transformation 🙂
