Thanks for joining us on our first home renovation adventure!
Your home should tell the story of who you are, and be a collection of what you love brought together under one roof.- Nate Berkus
My husband Adam and I started going to Virginia wine country a couple times a year which eventually turned into a couple times a month. Then we decided to do something spontaneous/crazy ( I think we watched too many epidsodes of Fixer Upper and thought “we got this”) and we bought a second house in Orange, Virginia. While we live and work in the DC metro area, heading to the country is our relaxing getaway. You can feel your blood pressure immediately decrease (but not in a creepy, passout kinda way) as you enter the beautiful countryside with horse farms and wineries.
To “justify” the home purchase, we told ourselves we would turn the house into an Airbnb, and if everything goes as planned, lol, we will turn this place into a money making machine. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves, our Spotswood House is in need of a MAJOR exorcism, I mean renovation. So as not to spoil the fun, check in next time as we reveal our little diamond in the rough.
