Massive Renovation to 100 Yr Old Beauty - Before and After
September 23, 2012 in Before & After
Our neighbors told us it was a tear-down. Our realtor told us it was a "gem in the rough, a fixer upper". As understatements go, her assessment was right up there with the best of them, but she was right and we saw the potential. Eight years later and after much soreness and many hammered thumbs, we completed everything but the landscaping. The only things we kept were the concrete foundation, the wood framing, and the stained glass window... and a lot of character and neighborhood history. We couldn't be happier -- and so are our neighbors.
