'Vacation House Rules': Scott and Debra land carriage house for renovation, can they bring its beauty to life?
Estimating that the house can fetch them around $80,000 per month, Scott knew that he had to work hard to bring his imagination to life
Scott McGillivray and Debra Salmoni are the dream team one would like to have when renovating their house. The latest episode (August 15, Saturday) of the show, the pair met Laura and Dale, house owners of a carriage house who bought it to get some income. Laura and Dale thought that the house would help them to have a steady flow of income, but the renovation was taking too much of their time.
After struggling to land on a place that would be good enough to invite guests, Laura and Dale decided to turn to Scott and Debra. When Scott first saw the house, he was excited to be part of a renovation that involved a carriage house. However, as he spent more time looking at the property, he realized that the house will require a lot of time and effort. As he walked into the house, Scott quickly realized that the space of the house was not being properly used. Estimating that the house can fetch them around $80,000 per month, Scott knew that he had to work hard to bring his imagination to life. With the help of Debra, Scott came up with the plan of renovating the house.
Meanwhile, Debra thought of ways in which the designs can help retain the original beauty of the house. The pair was aware that people would come to a carriage house to get the real experience. Keeping that in mind, Scott and Debra planned their renovation to ensure the true beauty is not lost with all the renovation. Scott started by breaking some walls and converting big bedrooms into two rooms to make sure they bring in more money. He then brought in new appliances for the bathroom and kitchen to ensure that it matches the idea they both had in mind.
Meanwhile, Debra bought some items that she thought would fit the house. Without wasting any time, Debra and Scott got to their work. Laura and Dale also helped out with the house as they helped to renovate a carriage door. Scott wanted to bring the doors to add them as an element in the house and with a little help from the owners, he managed to save some cost.
With the help of everyone, Scott and Debra were able to complete the renovation on time and undoubtedly, Laura and Dale loved in.
'Vacation House Rules' airs on Saturdays at 8 pm ET on HGTV.
