Turning a Nightmare Home into a DreamHome
FOCUSING ON THE PROS OF A SCARY PROPERTY SPARKS INSPIRATION
by Tori Martin
t may not look like it now but this house was as scary as they come. When acquiring a property you’ll often hear the saying, “It needs some work, but it has good bones.” We ended up finding out that not only did this house “need some work,” but the bones did too! The living room wall was bowing, the bathroom had 10 I
layers of flooring, the plumbing was backed up in the clawfoot tub, the foundation needed to be repaired, and that was the short list! Although this home was a liter- al nightmare, we knew it was in the best neighborhood Columbus, GA, has to offer and that we could make it a dream home again.
