What a great episode of Love It Or List It Vacation Homes last night! When I saw that last night’s episode was filmed in Whistler I got so excited! I’ve spent a good chunk of time there over the years (Justin used to live there) and I’ve always dreamed of having a cozy cabin in the mountains. With Justin being a former pro snowboarder, it could be a perfect spot for a little family cabin … don’t you think babe?!?
Anyway, back to the show…Chris and Rhonda bought their Whistler cabin 10 years ago in hopes to get not only some of the world’s best skiing in, but much-needed family time. They had completed a few upgrades to the kitchen and living area, but there was still a ton to be renovated. Dan already had a great space to work with but his list was pretty big for his budget! I really love renovating older homes because of the character you can salvage and incorporate into the design but it also means dealing with deterioration, leaky pipes, foundation issues, etc…etc. the list goes on!!
Without a doubt, Dan did come across some issues and wasn’t able to give them everything they asked for, but he came pretty close and I think he did an AMAZING job with what was completed. I literally had to rewind the show to double check that their answer was “List It”!!! I couldn’t believe it and I could tell Dan was just as shocked!! THE “LOVE IT” STREAK IS OVER!! I have to give it to Elisa for finding everything they wanted, especially slope-side. If you missed it, check out the reveal pics below!!
