Let’s say you want to buy a fixer-upper. Something with an outdated kitchen, popcorn ceilings, musty carpet, whatever. You’re cool with it. You know what fixer-uppers are made of and you can handle it.
But how low is that bar? How far would a fixer-upper have to go to scare you off? What if it was a former meth house? Yeah, that would do it for me. Scene of a heinous crime? No thanks. Neighborhood kids think it’s haunted? Nope. You can’t renovate a ghost.
What if it was formerly occupied by a herd of feral cats? That’s what Better After reader Missy and her husband got themselves into when they bought this home which she describes as ‘absolutely disgusting.’ I believe her! She says there were at least twelve cats living here. Twelve cats. TWELVE CATS. *shudder*
But they evicted the cats and did most all of the work themselves to create this beautiful open-concept kitchen. It doesn’t even look like the same space! Did I mention she was pregnant the entire time? Super woman. I would still be crying in a corner about the cats.
