Love Fixer-Uppers? Follow Our Newest Instagram Feed!

I don’t know exactly WHAT draws me to sad & lonely old houses just crying out for TLC. But whatever it is, I’m perfectly fine with it. I spend hours every day ogling cheap older homes that have some degree of detail left inside, whether it be a dusty mantel, original wood floors hidden under wall-to-wall carpeting, or original plasterwork behind a drop ceiling. In fact, I’m so obsessed with cheap old houses that I’ve started an Instagram feed devoted entirely to diamonds in the rough. Make sure to follow @cheapoldhouses to get your fixer-upper fix!
