Before & After: Historic Hornby Island Cottage


Before & After: Historic Hornby Island Cottage



Created date

June 21, 2016


Sisters Margaret and Barbara and their husbands share an historic, eighty-year-old cottage on Hornby Island in the natural beauty of the Gulf Islands, British Columbia. It’s been in their family for four generations and while Barbara thinks the cottage is well past its prime, Margaret can’t fathom letting it go. Margaret hopes to make more memories here with future generations but Barbara’s desperate to start over elsewhere. To make matters worse, their husbands have aligned not with their own wives, but with their sisters-in-law!

Can designer Dan breathe new life into this eighty-year-old fixer-upper? Or will realtor Elisa find the ideal vacation home for this family to start building beautiful new memories in?
