TCJ: Did you run into any major issues when renovating? If so, what was the fix?
LF: Our kitchen was the biggest project we’ve done, and there were a few issues that came up along the way. I wanted to turn a small doorway into a large opening between our kitchen and living room, but we found pipes and electrical in the wall that would be difficult and costly to move. Luckily, I was still able to open the majority of the wall up without having to move anything. You just have to adjust your plans and roll with the punches when it comes to renovations.
TCJ: When planning your renovation for your new home, what were some non-negotiables on your list?
LF: Open, bright spaces, charm and character, and much storage space as possible
