Emily and Aaron's new condo is a little bit like a time capsule. It was built in the 1970s, and it shows — from the all-brown kitchen to the green shag carpeting in the bathrooms (yes, the bathrooms). When they found it, they knew it was exactly what they had been looking for: a fixer-upper, a place where they could get a little experience remodeling while creating the perfect starter home.
