Before: Brown House

This old bungalow had zero curb appeal.

When former H&H staffer Emily Walker bought this house with partner Mark Holden, she could see beyond the chain-link fence, pink-brown paint and rotting roof. Drab cement edging along the walkway would soon be supplanted by beds of flowers, as would the less-than-welcoming fence, once it was torn out.
