I did it. I hired a contractor. It was a very hard decision and an important decision. And why was it so important? Because I am spending more of my budget with the contractor than I did on the purchase of the home!
A lot has been happening with our fixer upper home in Waco. We are still in escrow so I am not going to show any photos yet. I can tell you we bought a double lot with a small house (and room for another if we are really brave). The home was built in 1910 and yes, it is another one-hundred-year-old home.
So what do you think? This photo is a rendering of the room I have selected for my latest remodeling project, The One Room Challenge. This what I am calling “The Boys Room”. It used to be my husband’s room when he grew up (we bought my inlaws home twenty years ago). Then it was Andrew’s (our oldest son) room. When he went off to college it became Matt’s room. When he went off to college it became Michael’s room. Since Michael went off to college, this room has become anyone’s room who comes home to visit. Hence, it’s the “boys room”.
