Fargason Ranch: Before and After

Luke and Alison Fargason are a classic example of "opposites attract." Alison is a Graphic Designer by trade with an eye for design and creativity. Luke is a Financial Advisor with a knack for DIY projects. Combine a handyman who's willing to learn and a Southern Belle with an aesthetic taste and you get the adorable Fargason Ranch.

Sami sold the Fargason's their first home in May 2014. The home is truly a gem being all brick with a 2 car garage and a large wooded lot for under $250k in the South Park area. They purchased it from some sellers who were moving on to a retirement community and no longer had the energy to upkeep the property. The home needed work, but the Fargason's were able to see through the dark wood, dim lighting, and outdated furniture to see its potential.

Here is a list of some of the updates and projects the Fargason's have done to the home. It truly is a one-of-a-kind Before and After house turning into a home.
