A family from Cornwall, UK, has transformed an old house and breathed new life into it. Georgina Russell, a mom-of-two, says when she bought the house three years ago for $240,000, it was extremely neglected. Its previous owner was a hoarder who stored unnecessary stuff there, which filled the rooms floor to ceiling. But $150,000, two years of work, and some ingenuity have turned the house into a cozy home.
Three years ago a mom-of-two bought a neglected house
The house was full of unnecessary stuff that the former owner stored there
The house was cluttered floor to ceiling, there was little light in the rooms, and its walls and floor were covered with dirt
Russell says that the garden was so overgrown that at first they didn't even notice an old car in the drive.
But thanks to the efforts of Georgina, her husband and his friends, the house has been transformed into a stunning family home
Now the house boasts a utility room, master suite, bathroom, entrance hall and open plan kitchen dining living room.
The renovation coincided with the wedding preparations, and Georgina says it was the busiest time in her life
But it is worth the effort!
To expand the living space, the garage has been converted into a bedroom
The couple adopted the Scandinavian style, the main feature of which is minimalism
The family has also decorated the nursery in a similar style
Georgina often bought some house items on different websites for next to nothing
The house façade has also undergone dramatic changes
The first floor has been expanded and the garage has been converted into two bedrooms
So two years of refurbishing and diligence may turn even an derelict house into a luxurious palace!
