Is Fixing A House On a Budget Even Possible ?

I wish somehow we can erase 2020 with all its hectic mood swings. It has been the craziest year so far. This year with so much free time in hand made us decide to buy a house, WOOHOO!
 Now the house we liked needs a fixer-upper.
My husband's job is to take care of the mortgage and my job is interior designing and decorating.
A lot of things need upgrading, the bathroom,  kitchen, and living area, bedroom basically every room needs some kind of fixing.
The house is huge and its a nice blend of half beautiful and half fixer upper. There is a lot of space so that is not an issue. My main focus is the kitchen and living room since 
we will be spending most of our time there.
The idea is to make the kitchen practical, modern and welcoming. 



Now from this 







to something like this is



As I am writing this, I just realized it is not going to be easy.
We all have thousands of ideas but to execute is a whole different thing.
So to keep everything under budget without compromising the look, I started researching for places and sites where I could buy the kind of stuff I had in mind and came across Build.com
Build.com  is very easy to use and it was in fact fun using it. I loved how organized and impressive it was. with all categories with amazing and attractive pictures. I found products that were better than I had hoped for. This is one in all sites, it has everything that is needed to fix or renovate the house, and that also under budget.

The quality looks great and the products have a high-end finish. Prices are just right and with a 30 % labor day sale  I am sure I will find the best deals and I will make most of it.


 
The house is not in a livable condition and it is a big project, maybe that is why we are getting it dirt cheap, it could also be because of the pandemic. There is a 13 acres lot with it, the house is solid and has a lot of potentials so its a deal that should not be ignored




Since a lot has to be fixed and bought, I will have to find any discounts or sale offers I can, one such site that really has amazing coupons and deals is Slickdeals
I find the best coupons and deals here and I am sure I will be visiting this site quite often. I mean if I want renovation under budget I definitely need all the help I can get.
I better go now as I have to make a list of things we will need to get, the remodeling started.
Have you ever fixed a house? How was your experience? Please, share any tips or tricks.
