YOUR Old House Remodel Contest | Denise P.
Del Haven, NJ
My husband and I bought a house in Eunice, LA on November 17, 2017. I lost my job on November 20, 2017. We bought it to remodel and live in so we could be close to our daughter and grandchildren. The house was in worse shape than we realized and we had to sell it. It was a big challenge, both financially and emotionally to finish it. I am so proud of my husband for completing the project. We had to replace all the windows, the sub floor, joists and several exterior studs. My husband did all the electric and plumbing. We used as many of the original kitchen cabinets in the remodel. We painted the old and new cabinets a dark grey and left the IKEA cabinet white. It is an amazing remodel. The master bedroom became the living room and we opened it up to the dining room. The long living room was made into 2 bedrooms. The utility room/half bathroom combination was a mess. You opened the back door and there was the bathroom. We added a shower and a few walls to create a true 2nd bathroom. The house looks like an entirely new house inside. I have a lot more pics and videos.
