I love renovation projects and lucky for me I have been doing a lot of them lately for an investor. It's always fun to see old homes with so much character brought back to life. 

This project was in St. Paul in a great neighborhood. Sadly the house had been neglected with no one living there but now it is vibrant once again with a great family. 

My favorite TV show is 'Fixer Upper' and I especially love when they start each show with "Do you have what it takes for a Fixer Upper?" I do, I do!! 

 

Take a look!

These old homes are so precious. I am so glad they are being restored to their glory along with modern updates. Looking forward to the next one!
