One of the GREATEST transformations of all time (in my opinion) was the transformation of the home that my grandparents built in the 70s. This is the same home that my parents now call their "home away from home."
We used it as more of a "camp" when I was growing up because we were only up here a couple times a year. By the time my parents decided to take the plunge and officially retire here, the house was basically falling down. They had to take care of some MAJOR repairs before they could make it their permanent home.
This was the extent of my help with the remodeling project:
Now it is the most beautiful place on the planet! I love visiting (did I mention that there are wonderful thrift stores nearby?!?!) and I cannot wait for my parents to enjoy living here permanently for a very long time.
Now it's time for Mom and me to leave this beautiful home and hit some of those great thrift stores that I mentioned. I'll keep you posted with some of our fabulous finds!
