When Lauren and her husband started looking at home improvement projects a few years ago, the biggest hurdle was getting a deal done.
“We’re trying to get a house that looks like it was built for a drug store,” she said.
The couple bought the property for $600,000 from a real estate agent, but it didn’t quite meet their needs.
“The biggest issue is the ceiling,” she explained.
“It’s like, oh, there’s a closet, but there’s no window to open up the attic, there is no closet to open.
It’s like we can’t see through the roof.”
So, we were like, what do we do?
We could buy a new house, but then we’d have to start over.
“Instead of buying a house, Lauren and husband Ryan found a new home for their daughter, Emily.
The couple spent $100,000 on renovations to the old home, and Emily’s family agreed to help out.”
There was no way we were going to get the property renovated,” Lauren said.”
They were kind enough to come out and take over, and it was really hard for us.
“Because of the lack of windows, the closets are not accessible.
We had to use a crawlspace to get to the attic.”
You can’t really open the doors from the outside.
It was really, really hard.
It just wasn’t going to work.
“After the renovations, Lauren said they moved into the new house with their daughter and Emily.”
That house is gorgeous, and the whole family loves it,” she added.”
And it’s just really quiet, and you can get out of the house and play.
“The home has been well-loved by Emily, who has been taking her medication for ADHD since the age of 10.
The home is an addition to the family, and Lauren said the family would always have a place to go.”
Emily said she appreciates how her new home is more spacious than the previous house, and that it is comfortable for the family to live.””
It’s the perfect home for me.”
Emily said she appreciates how her new home is more spacious than the previous house, and that it is comfortable for the family to live.
“In a lot of places, you have to have a big backyard, and a lot places, they don’t have a backyard, they just have a driveway, so that’s a big problem,” she told ABC News.
“With this house, I have more space to be myself, I don’t need to worry about anything.
And I can relax a little bit.”
