Casandra's First Home

House Call

Name: Casandra
Location: Oceanside (San Diego), California

About a year and a half ago, my husband and I bought our very first home. Seeing that we were only 23 at the time and had a limited (this is a huge understatement) budget, we had to work with what we had available (which, to reiterate, was nothing).

With the help of our friends, family, craigslist, the the streets of Carlsbad, we were able to transform our boring tract home into, well, you'll see.

Thanks, Casandra!
