From Fixer Upper to Fantastic Home


Today we are highlighting a project that is very close to home.  In fact, it has been our home for the last 20 years.   Our house was the epitome of the worst house on a great street when we bought it in 1992.   Since then we have slowly, carefully and painstakingly  created a comfortable home out of  a space that was tired and neglected.     Every surface has been refreshed, restored, replaced, refurbished or remodeled. Fixing up an old home can be incredibly rewarding but is not for the faint of heart.  It requires creativity, patience, collaboration, persistence and careful budget management.

My partner, Philip and I have remodeled three highly distressed properties together and have learned many valuable lessons about design, construction and healthy working relationships from these experiences.  We will be publishing a series of articles to share the wit and wisdom we have gained from converting a fixer upper into a fantastic home.

To whet your appetite for what is in store, here are a number of photographs that illustrate what we have accomplished in our most recent home.
