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.

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
