Before & After

This post is long overdue, but we have been so busy running the motel that we haven't had time to properly share the full renovation. 

Here's the visual story of the motel renovation. We bought the motel on January 12th and found out maybe the day or two before the purchase that the former owners weren't going to move out right away. All of their belongings were all over the house. They had had a huge garage sale right before they had sold the property and this is what the place looked like. There were heavy curtains on the windows, which made the place seem darker. There was quite a bit of clutter too.

There was seriously a lot of work to do. Every day we worked as hard as we could. Many days working up to 14 or 16 hours a day. We worked till our hands were literally bleeding. This is not exaggerating at all. There is so much blood, sweat and tears in the remodel.

We made these changes over just about a month. You can see the daily vlog updates we did during the remodel. We are still making little changes and updates by the day. There is still more to do, but we are getting there more and more each day.
