If you have renovation pictures you’d be willing to share please send some before and after photos to princeofpetworth(@)gmail and include how much it cost and contractors used and any other info you think might be useful.

“Attached are a couple before and after photos of my second bedroom/office. My partner and I applied for an HGTV show and long story short had 5 days to do all the demolition and remodel everything ourselves with no help or advice. Well, we did it- we had some temporary issues with the interior aesthetics of the skylight we installed but put it all together in under 2 grand. The filming of the show was really rough because they totally set you up for disaster, they script what they want to go wrong and in the end show every time you drop your hammer instead of successfully putting in drywall. Not much real about reality TV.

Basically what we did was remove the existing ceiling to expose the attic above then we rebuilt a new ceiling with drywall, installed a skylight, built a loft over the closet, redid the woodwork with exposed beams and raw trim, then painted. Still a few more details I would like to do when I get the time but we think it’s looking pretty great.”
