South Carolina Couple Appears On Magnolia Network “First Time Fixer”
What happens when you combine a home renovation, a wedding and six-year old triplets? Well, with any luck you see your dreams come true. That’s just what happened when South Carolina couple Ashley and Angel decided to tackle their very own home renovation. They had started their renovation when they stumbled across a social media post about the show. The couple simply made contact, and within minutes they got a call from the show. And, that’s how they ended up on Magnolia Network’s “First Time Fixer.”
They purchased the home on the lake in York, South Carolina for $650,000 because they loved the location and the views. And, they knew it had potential to be exactly what they wanted. However, it needed tender loving care. With a budget of $350,000 and a 12 week timeline for completion, they rolled up their sleeves and went to work.
How do I know the couple? Ashley’s daughter, Alli, and my son attended high school together in Monroe, North Carolina. And, Alli and Hogan remain best friends to this day. Never afraid to take on a challenge, I’ve known Ashley to build chicken coops, redo bathrooms and install her own major appliances over the years. So, I knew she was prepared.
During the timeline, they encountered setbacks, permit delays and termites. However, they managed to see it through. And, they refused to let a little dust and bare drywall stop their wedding. They married in the unfinished home on New Year’s Eve.
The project ended up taking 16 weeks to complete, but they stayed on budget. The home is beautiful with special touches they personally chose. Angel hand painted a peninsula mural representing the home’s location. They added a dog wash in the laundry. Plus, there’s even a “morse code” wall in the bath that translates to “wash your hands.” As beautiful as the home looks on TV, it was even more stunning when we visited in person. So, take a tour along with us of this South Carolina couple’s experience with their “First Time Fixer.” Stream the show on Discovery + or Magnolia Network.
