What started as a small water leak under the refrigerator ended up being a dream home remodel for Casey and Cheryl Hixson. Although the Hixsons’ house, which was built in 1959, had been through a facelift by the previous owner, this was the first full-scale remodel. “We had talked about it several times in the past, but this was a good time to do it,” said Cheryl.
As is the case with many older houses, one thing leads to another when it comes to repairs. “When they took the floor up under the refrigerator, they discovered asbestos, which then required all of the floors on one whole side of the house to be removed,” said Cheryl. “And we decided that since we were doing that, we were just going to go right ahead and make our dream house.”
