Yes, when I go for a walk when I am at my beach home, I pass them. Now, I know you don't know this little secret of mine...I went inside two of the houses while the show was being aired last summer. Comfort Breeze...THE WINNER...was for sale and my sweet realtor took me inside for a tour of it. Keep in mind, the show was being aired and we had no idea who would win the BIG prize. When we where leaving, we saw that the cleaning crew was next door at Southwind and we asked if we could look around...sure come on in. Here is another bit of info, that I can now share with you...Southwind (2nd place) sold before the winner Comfort Breeze did...oh my!!!! Okay, yes I know Lucy (one of the gals that remodeled Southwind), we are both vendors at "The Market on Chapel Hill" show, that is held every October in Pike Road, Alabama. So, sure I was cheering for Lucy and her partner Daphne to win, but after viewing both homes, I was sure they had this one. They might have came in second place with HGTV, but you see who the buyers liked best. Lucy and Daphne's work was soooooo much better than the work inside Comfort Breeze. I was so surprise to see that after just a few months on the rental market, what this house looked liked. The shiplap was coming off the walls...hardware was missing from cabinets...furniture was falling apart and the paint job was awful. Southwind was holding up much better and was just all around, a much nicer home. Also, Southwind sold for more than Comfort Breeze did...now that wasn't a surprise to me. Well, let's now look inside my neighbors houses.
so I didn't get to go inside of them.
cheap looking and not in good
shape...wonder what it looks
bright from the East...so the guests used a
curtain from the laundry area to try and block
What were they thinking!!!
I like the look of it, but it wasn't installed
Luv that wall!
was coming off (but not right here).
on the deck at Southwind. Do
y'all remember all the great
things that Lucy and Daphne
had out there? I will say this,
the owner of the houses removed
a lot of the neat items from the
houses after the show was over.
I need to tell you this before we go
in...I was in a hurry because they
were cleaning it, so I didn't get a lot
of photos and the ones that I did get,
are not that great...sorry!
and I am sorry that it took me so long to
share it with you (I forgot I haven't already
done that...sign of old age).
Hey y'all...let's stay in touch!!!
