For those of you who have been following along, almost three years ago my parents bought a MAJOR project house to renovate in Duluth, Minnesota. We named it the “London Road Fixer Upper” and MAN was it a HUGE project! They’ve put tons of work and love into this house and today it hit the market! I present to you the London Road Fixer Upper Reveal!
Because the before and afters are SO dramatic, I love showing them to you side by side. Their listing agent has an amazing photographer who took all of the “after” photos. I only wish I would have taken more before photos.

I don’t have any before photos of the attic, but it was a completely unfinished space and it was ROUGH. Now it’s a gorgeous space with views of Lake Superior!
I also don’t have any basement before photos, but trust me, it’s come SO FAR!
Finally, I just HAVE to share these exterior photos. The coolest thing about this house is actually the piece of property that it’s situated on. It overlooks a creek with a waterfall and when you sit on the patio and side porch you can hear the trickle of the water. Also… my eleven year old helped my dad lay this entire paver patio, so I have to share it!
As I mentioned, the listing on this house went live today! If you’re interested here is the link! I know that this house is going to be hard for my parents to say goodbye to, but it’s also going to make someone VERY happy.
I know there’s going to be questions about sources! The white throughout the house is Benjamin Moore Simply White. The dark color is Benjamin Moore “Wrought Iron”. My mom has used mostly period antiques and clearance deals but I’m including sources for the items that she’s sourced recently!

If you’ve ever wondered where I get my drive and passion for DIY, now you know! I am so proud of my parents! It’s been fun to follow along with this huge project and I can’t wait to see what they decide to do next!
This transformation is incredible! What a fantastic house!!!
Thanks for reading! The buyers are going to be very lucky to have this house!
Oh my goodness, this is incredible!!!! Absolutely gorgeous and such a special house and property! Your parents are truly amazing people to accomplish this! I am in awe of them and their beautiful work!!
Right?! They’re amazing. I’m constantly inspired by them.
it’s beautiful! just beautiful! and that price!?!?! i am moving to duluth now!
Right?!? I was born there and have always wanted to move back. Good news though, they’re going to continue project houses in Duluth so I can always visit!
I stumbled into your blog after I sold this house to your parents. It was my late uncle’s home and my grandparents’ before that. I am amazed by the transformation! My grandma would be so proud to have it restored to a beautiful family home. She bought it in the 50s and it was a lovely home for that time and it’s time for it to have life in it again. Some family is going to be happy there. I am so glad you and your folks chose this house to put your blood sweat and tears into. Absolutely stunning work.
WOW! That’s so awesome. I’m so glad you’re happy with the outcome! I know that it’s going to be hard for them to part with because they’ve fallen in love with it too. The creek and porches are our favorite part. Thank you for commenting!
What an amazing job your parents did on this house! I’ve been following this since the beginning and I know you helped too. Three days on the market and it’s already pending, congratulations!
We’re all shocked that it went so quickly! The love it but are also excited to be able to move onto their next project!
