    It’s always been a dream of mine to buy an extremely cheap older house and completely renovate it – well, this family did it and blogged about the whole experience. Thanks for saving me the time and effort!

    Wow, you did a great job! My husband and I have a much smaller renovation project, so I know what it takes to bring these beauties to a new life.
