Tina and Scott's Story
Tina, and her husband Scott bought a sad little cabin that sat unsold for years. They fell in love with it, not because it was beautiful, but because it was nestled in a forest of pines overlooking a lovely meadow in the Colorado Rockies. Then they transformed it into a stunner. A real gem. So much so, that when they put it on the market several years later it sold immediately to the first buyer on the very first day.
While Tina and Scott were fixing it up there was a lot of fun and laughter. Because, even though they could have spent more money, it became a game to see how little they could spend and how good they could make it look. And their motto was "Cheap or Free!"
Tina and Scott and all who are like them, are the inspiration for
