The Sand Rabbit was 'butt ugly' when it was purchased nearly ten years ago. The enclosed front porch was removed and is now a lovely outdoor porch with wicker furniture. The upstairs was opened up and totally renovated including a new kitchen, bath and private new balcony. In addition to renovating distressed properties (and when I'm not taking a nap!), I'm a business owner, writer, yoga instructor, social worker and mother of two. I think I need a vacation like the rest of you!
How many six bedroom houses (divided into two completely self contained units each with their own kitchen, laundry and living area) can you get only one house to Lake Mi for $100.00 per room, per night, in the summer? The house is fully renovated and CHARMING with hand painted floors. Nothing cookie cutter here!
