The Most Heartwarming Renovation Story I Have Ever Heard

By Elizabeth Finkelstein.

I AM SOOOOO EXCITED!!! Way back in 2013, CIRCA featured, as one of our Friday Fixer-Uppers, a 9,000 sq. ft. home in Emporia, Kansas that needed (let’s put it lightly) just a bit of rehabbing. Well, someone actually bought this house, and is indeed fixing it up, and suffice it to say he is one TRULY inspiring person. I’m so excited to share with you my conversation with the fabulous Ross MacTaggert, who has been blogging all about the renovation of the magnificent Cross House at RestoringRoss.com. It’s a truly inspiring story for anyone interested in buying, renovating or saving an old house. Click through the jump below to watch! And make sure to follow CIRCA’s YouTube Channel to see more old house eye candy each week.
