Before and After: A Serious Fixer-Upper

When the Atlanta, Georgia-based renovation firm Laughing Sun purchased this home, it was in absolute disrepair.

Laughing Sun replaced the original steep Victorian roof and extended the footprint of the home to accommodate five bedrooms, a roomy kitchen, a center hall, and two and a half bathrooms.
