I actually prefer to view resident renovations- NO, restorations, opposed to renovations done by investors who want to flip. Yes, they’re usually pretty, but many don’t know details… they usually rip out all the good stuff and replace it with something more modern…I wish more of the investors understood that the West End is something more… the houses are something special and a standard renovation will NOT due.
*coming from someone with a renovated house- now wishing I had a restored one* lol
But I love my house- I still have a few original details. My next project will be to buy one and restore it. (which will probably be my 10yr project lol….restorations seem like they can add up!)
