When we first bought our Cape Cod house, we knew we had our work cut out for us. The house was the worst one on the block, but we loved the neighborhood and could afford the price. At the beginning, everything in the house was so plain that I felt really unhappy there. But we had a vision for what we wanted to do with the space. We had expensive tastes but a limited budget, so we took it one room at a time.
Our dream was to have a grand chandelier in the foyer, a spacious and modern kitchen with an island, and a luxurious master bedroom with plenty of closet space. It took us several years to achieve these goals, but we were determined to make our house into a home that we loved.
Our biggest renovation project was when we extended the roof and added more usable square footage to create our dream master bedroom suite. It was a lot of hard work, but we were so proud of the final result. We learned a lot about home renovation and design during that process, especially about being empathetic to our clients while they go through renovation because we got to experience first hand what all it takes.
