Lofty Ambitions Give This Hornby Island Property a Gorgeous Facelift

Lauren and Jim took a major gamble when they bought their Hornby Island home more than a decade ago, sight unseen. But with Jim’s handyman skills, they were convinced they’d be able to transform their vacation home into an oasis for themselves and their son in no time. Flash forward to today, and while most of the rooms and the loft extension had been framed out, absolutely nothing in this space was actually finished. So Jim called in the help of Dan Vickery and his reno team on Love it or List it Vacation Homes in hopes of convincing Lauren to stay. With a $50,000 budget, here’s how Dan transformed the space into a quaint and lofty escape by the water.
