Jonathan's Modern Beach Town Getaway

After two years, Jonathan's reign as the Brother Vs. Brother champ comes to an end. He took a gamble on a single-story Galveston beach house in need of some cosmetic updating for $360,000. After $157,000 in renovation costs, Jonathan sold the home for $587,500, netting $70,500.

Living Room, Before

Some may call this fireplace “retro,” but Jonathan just calls it “ugly” and not fit for his visions of a modern, sophisticated living space. Though the main area is basically a blank slate to start with, the cosmetic issues of white paneling, popcorn ceilings and dated carpet can be a bit difficult to see past.

Hello, gorgeous! Deep blue paint, rich flooring and a raised ceiling with wood accents transform this space into the luxurious living and dining room of any vacationer’s dreams.

Kitchen, Before


Not exactly a home away from home, is it? The dated peninsula, carpet and light fixtures have to go.
