Who: Barbara W.
Where: Bland, MO
My sister and I found this diamond-in-the-rough foreclosure and knew it could be saved. She and I have always collected antiques and junk, and we had a yard sale to pay for big-ticket items like a furnace and a claw-foot tub. We did all the work ourselves. Also, we have a plumber and an electrician in the family. A big barbeque usually took care of those wages!
