So, if you’ve been following our posts, you know that our parents bought a home in Huntingdon Beach back in April and they asked Laurel and I to help them renovate it. They wanted it done fairly quickly so that they could enjoy some of the fall season down there. Ok…confession time….the first time we saw that house, Laurel and I were wondering what my parents had gotten themselves into! My dad has been in construction since 1971 and he had always built his homes. Now, we were dealing with a 20 year old home with a pretty hideous interior. But dad said it had “good bones” and they were satisfied with the layout, so the renovation would be cosmetic in nature only.
We must admit that it was difficult at times to deal with a renovation from such a great distance…I’m sure it was much more frustrating for dad than it was for us. But we are very pleased with the results. And we enjoyed the fruits of our labour and our parents hard work in getting the house ready for us to enjoy a quick vacation in the middle of November!
Here are the befores and afters!
