A Young Family Upgrades to a Spacious Home They Can Renovate in Simi Valley, CA
Eric, Dana, and their young son have outgrown their Simi Valley, CA condo. They are ready to buy a single-family home, and are targeting ranch-style places near their condo. While Eric wants a rugged Craftsman look on the inside, Dana is more traditional and clean-lined. They have a budget of up to $525,000 to spend, and are open to making improvements to the space. With the help of family friend and real estate agent Karen Betacourt, they see several ranch style homes to consider. Once they choose a place, they waste no time making updates, tackling the kitchen, master bedroom, dining room, and living rooms- all ambitious updates for their $33,000 renovation budget. With Eric on a work trip to Europe during part of the renovation, Dana is left in charge and takes it upon herself to update even more rooms in him absence. While they experience the ups and downs of renovation, after nearly six weeks of hard work, the effort pays off and then can now enjoy their new home.
