The 1800’s Home Renovation Story

Tommy and Carolyn Braden renovated their 1800’s home while living in it from 2008 to 2019. It was a lot of blood, sweat, tears and years, but they managed to turn the once sad and dark house into a happy and light home once again! They renovated two other homes in the past, but this was by far their biggest challenge to date with every room needing new ceilings, walls and floors!
