Project by: Tom & Mindy
Location: Santa Rosa, California
We spent much of our 30s looking at, bidding on, and losing offers on fixer farmhouse properties in Sonoma County. We were ecstatic when an offer of ours was finally accepted for a short sale property, which was supposed to close on my 40th birthday, which I thought was a very good omen! It did take a little longer than anticipated, but several months later we were the proud owners of a country fixer, with all the septic, fencing and updating problems that tend to come with these properties.
