Winner: A Once-Trashed House Becomes a Gem: Before
Who: Mark W.
We restored a Tudor twin in the historic Overbrook Farms section of Philadelphia with shockingly little money with which to work. Each room was like a call for help from an old, beloved friend whom we'd never met but had always known. It is nearly impossible to adequately describe the waist-deep, cat-urine-soaked ancient garbage and dead-animal horror. A 3,800-square-foot nightmare of tightly glued together, interwoven stinking filth removed by a lot of willing souls—armed with pitchforks!
