Flipping their first home wasn’t glamorous for former Maple Grove resident Brad Fox and his wife, Heather Fox. It had a foot of water in the basement, lead paint and mold. The project involved the couple eating a lot of ramen noodles, delaying bill payments, and piecing together scavenged materials and DIY projects with no money, no help, and certainly no cameras to document it all.
“We bought the worst house you can possibly imagine,” Heather remembers. “But it was kind of fun—we’d watch HGTV to get inspired, and that’s where the dream started.”
