My friends Aubrey & Mitchell Davis recently remodeled this “real home” near Brenham, Texas, where all live!  Brenham is a great place to live and raise a family and they knew this fixer upper could be perfect for the right family.  Aubrey is a budding real estate agent and Mitchell is a contractor in the area!  Can you believe the befores of this property?  And when I say PROPERTY that really is the strength of this project (along with the people involved)!

This house is located on a lovely rural road out from the town of Brenham with nice trees and a bit of land.  That made this venture make a little more sense but I have to admit, when I first walked in the BEFORE space I thought they might be a little nuts and definitely had a hard road ahead.

This collage shows more BEFORES, check that one in the MIDDLE! YIKES!

But Mitchell forged ahead with construction and Aubrey chose the finishes, and colors and THEY DID IT, they pulled this one off.  I am so impressed with the job y’all did on this guys!  Y’all are hardworking and have great style.

Now on to their best project yet…a NEW BABY..the Davis family is due ANY DAY! If you can flip a house, parenting will be a breeze…NOT!  The intensity can actually be very similar at times but I know y’all will be great parents and I can’t wait to see more homes and projects in your future!
