When we purchased our home (Beech Street Bungalow) back in 2016, the only thing about the home that we weren't crazy about was some of the surrounding properties. We knew, in particular, that the home and property directly next door were not living up to it's potential, and hoped one day that it would.
After many late night discussions, a lot of research, tons of number crunching and the weighing of future plans--Phillip and I decided to make an offer on the house! This is where the crazy part comes in. Could we afford it? Probably not. Did we have time to work on it? That's an easy NO. Did we know what we were getting into? Haha, no, you never do! But did we have the desire to see this home brought to life, and to be the ones to give it a second chance? Yes!
If you know me, you know I am very much a planner. I also love a challenge. This idea seemed to speak to me on so many levels--planning for our future, as well as a fun design and budgeting challenge. I was, and still am, delighted to be a part of this project and I can't wait to share the journey with you!
Enough with the backstory, let's give you a tour!
