Before and After: A Serious Fixer-Upper

When the Atlanta, Georgia-based renovation firm Laughing Sun purchased this home, it was in absolute disrepair. Once a gorgeous folk Victorian home, it was missing its original roof, and the once-soaring 12-foot-high ceilings had been pared back to only seven feet. It also was so leaky that the renovators were able to push the back wall of the house with one hand!


To see how this mess was turned into a masterpiece,

Laughing Sun replaced the original steep Victorian roof and extended the footprint of the home to accommodate five bedrooms, a roomy kitchen, a center hall, and two and a half bathrooms. Check out the gallery to see the extensive, beautiful renovations that the firm put into place, returning this home to its 19th century glory.

I think the most interesting thing about this is the thought that someone could take what was a beautiful Victorian and break it down into that shack in the first place. It's one thing to let it go into disrepair, but why would you ever want to remove that great pitched roof?
