After

Laurie Fried’s home is in a secluded spot on the woods. She has a great view but can’t enjoy it because the previous owners built an obnoxious deck that looks like the front of a ship and blocks her windows. Dull paint, bland landscaping and broken concrete steps add to her misery. Vincent Leger is going to turn this ship around by adding character, modern accents and creating a look that will make the home the main attraction.
