Couple Evades Mortgage by Renovating Vacant Residence
Anne Denton’s daughter and her daughter’s family located a low-cost, vacant residence that required some renovation, so they rolled up their sleeves and worked side by side to turn the house into a home. The home has a walk-out basement, a sunroom, and a detached shop and garage.
The author, Anne Denton, helped her daughter and son-in-law transform this Missouri home in about 10 days. The total cost of the home after renovation was $20,000.

The renovators (all friends and family) sanded and refinished the floors, cleaned and caulked the windows, and put a fresh coat of paint on the interior walls.
