Elizabeth Finkelstein Bio

Elizabeth Finkelstein and her husband, Ethan Finkelstein, are the brains behind the popular Instagram account @cheapoldhouses. Together, they restore historic homes in HGTV's series Who's Afraid of a Cheap Old House? Elizabeth grew up in an 1850s home lovingly restored by her parents, so her love for crown molding and peeling wallpaper runs in her gene pool. She holds a master’s degree in historic preservation and has put in years of professional work restoring old houses. While not filming or nurturing the vast and wonderful @cheapoldhouses community, the couple spends time restoring their own cheap old farmhouse — a little slice of heaven they snagged for a cool $70,000.
