Renovating a house had it's ups and downs. It was amazing to see the transformation. The original look had fallen out of my mind until I dug up the old footage I had shot. The downside, if you move into the house in the middle, it feels like you're always living in chaos. I remember one day, Ryan turned to me and said, "you thought this was going to be just like HGTV, didn't you?" Well yes, yes I did. I was quickly proved wrong. It is A LOT of loooong work. Painting, yeah, that takes DAYS. While we're on the topic of HGTV, bathrooms are not done in an afternoon. HGTV LIES!! If you have a guesstimate on how long something will take, double that and add a day.
