Hi there friends! You have been asking for a while and today I am sharing the details on how we (Robert + I) designed and built a DIY custom wall unit for the BHG makeover. If you aren’t familiar, I teamed up with Rebuilding Together to give a deserving homeowner (Karen) a FULL room makeover with a feature in the Oct 2017 issue of BHG. This built-in was a true labor of love for my PIC (partner in crime). I remember showing up to his house over a year ago on a cold, fall day with this sketch up of the custom built-in I had in mind. It was a shameful rendering but he got it, right away. I knew then that we would make a great team (and we did). Not one time did Robert say no, I don’t thing so or can’t be done. And let me tell you, we hit a lot of snags and set backs. You can tell by the in progress shots below how we poured our heart and soul into this project. The biggest thank you to Lowe’s!!! For which without their contribution to this project, it would have never happened!
If you are like me, then you are curious about the “fixer upper” market. It seems to be the hot trend in real estate right now and every where you turn it seems like more people are jumping on board to see if they can cash in. Whether locally, within your own network of family & friends or on social media & television, it’s all the buzz and rightfully so. There can be a huge financial gain when entering into this rewarding game of real estate. But we all know how risky and time consuming it can also be, especially when doing all the work yourself. So the question is, is it right for us?
