My friend and her husband had just moved into an old farmhouse. Let me stress: this place was a real fixer-upper. One of the first things she wanted to update was the bathroom on the second floor. It was pretty small and didn’t even connect to the master bedroom. However, there was a fairly large closet that she wasn’t going to use right next to the bathroom. She and her husband completely gutted the bathroom and knocked down the wall that was shared with the closet, nearly tripling the size of the bathroom. Now they had to start redesigning the bathroom from scratch. They reworked the plumbing, put in drywall, and bought new bathroom fixtures. Their next step was to look into pre-made cabinets.
My friend was so impressed with the professional look of the pre-made cabinets that she decided to use them again when it came time to redo the kitchen. Now they have a beautiful home. The improvements that the couple have made to their old farmhouse over the years have increased the property’s value tenfold. The best part was that they did most of it themselves.
