This house seemed on the verge of collapse until a family intervened.


Built over 130 years ago, this house had been abandoned for many years before they purchased it.

What they’ve done with it is incredible! This is what it looks like now…

The house, built in 1887, was considered dangerous to enter as it looked like it could collapse at any moment.

When people wanted to buy this large ruin, they didn’t even bother to think about it, but everything changed when locals Jim and Jean Leaman stepped in.

After seeing the house deteriorate over decades, the retired couple’s love for classical architecture in the form of ruins inspired them to purchase the house.

After five years of daily work on the house, they managed to transform the ruin into a magical place that we can all call home.

The transformation is almost unreal! But wait until you see the interior…

This is how the house looked at the beginning.

But this is how it looked after the restoration.

The interior will take your breath away.

It looks straight out of a Harry Potter movie.

The floors are made of five different types of wood, and the glass panels allow a rainbow of colors to shine through.

Each of the five rooms on the second floor is uniquely decorated and has a special charm.

But this small room in the attic is the perfect place for an office!

What it looked like and what he has made out of it is truly hard to believe.

It took a lot of work, time, and money, but he has turned the ruin into a cozy and warm home.
