Scott and Debra Wrangle the Ultimate Ranch Rental

3:36

Brothers Caleb and Jordan have dreams of being savvy short-term rental entrepreneurs by the time they’re 30 years old. They’re ready to put that plan into action, too, thanks to their recent acquisition of an old farmhouse on a bison ranch. They have some skills, but in this episode, they were looking for a mentor to help them fine-tune their ways. So they called Scott McGillivray and Debra Salmoni to learn Scott’s Vacation House Rules.

A Blast From the Past

It might not look like it in this photograph, but this farmhouse had plenty of potential. The wallpaper and carpet made this entryway feel dark and a little mouldy. But just look at that trim and original staircase. Those are features you won’t soon forget.

An Updated Welcome

By removing the carpet and sanding the original hardwood floors, Scott and Debra revealed a ton of original charm. Some TLC to the trim and railing also gives this entryway a rich upgrade, and the white paint and wainscoting add much-needed brightness.

Room for Improvement

That same orange-red carpet continued in the living room, with more wallpaper and a cracking ceiling awaiting the team.

A Fresh Look

Debra and Scott exposed those original hardwood floors for a gorgeous new living room look. They then updated the walls with warm paint and wainscoting, making the space feel polished and updated. A new coat of white paint on the trim kept the original features intact, and warm wood accents helped bring that ranch feeling home.

Rustic Dining

The new look continued into the dining room, where an updated mantel and gas fireplace insert add extra warmth and charm. The circular dining table set is intimate and rustic, but the space feels open and airy thanks to the large entryways, streamlined floors, and paint. You can imagine renting this space and having quality family time or extended hangouts with good friends.
