Woman transforms ‘upside house’ into dream home – and people think she’s moved

A woman has showed off her incredible transformation with people thinking she’s moved home.

Joanna Lewis, from Kent, bought the run-down property in 2018 with the hopes of transforming it into a dream house.

The mum-of-two turned the “ugliest house on the street” into an unrecognisable home which took two years to renovate.

She began with her fiancé Adam where they converted the downstairs kitchen, bathroom and bedroom into an open plan space.

The couple created a nursery for her two young kids, then swapped the windows in the living room to make it appear more bigger.

Once the renovation was complete, Joanna shared the before and after pictures on Instagram where she has 19,500 followers.

She said: “The ugliest house on the street’ as quoted by a neighbour… Well, not anymore. It was an upside down house.

“We changed the windows in the living room, from rectangle to square.

“The house itself was square so we worked with what we had keeping the theme of the house square but modern.

“After all this is a stepping stone to our forever home. So working with what we had was key.

“We created a hallway which would lead into one master bedroom, a second bedroom and a shower room.”

A year later, the couple even added an extra floor to the house so they have four bedrooms, two bathrooms and two balconies.

She added: “Another nursery and our new bedroom [added to that floor].

“The original master bedroom below, with the built in wardrobes is now a dressing room.

“This has been finished very recently, still working on furnishing the main room.

“Sky light above the bed means perfect star gazing at night. The house was rendered. Wood added to balcony areas.”

But despite the home’s transformation, Joanna and her partner are not finished yet.

The electricity box needs to be covered to match the house and the couple aren’t sure of what paint to use for the wooden panels.

Since she shared the photos on Twitter, the post racked up 4,100 retweets and 41,300 likes.

One said: “Did you knock it down and build a new one? Looks fantastic.”

Another commented: “Love this, such an amazing transformation!”
