PORTLAND, OREGON In just three days the Wykhuis family of Northeast Portland had their garage turned into a beautiful Master Bedroom and Mudroom storage area.
The family made a trip to a local home improvement store late last Spring. It was crunch time. They needed to figure out how to spend as little as possible and change things around at their home on Northeast Holman. They were quickly out growing their 50′s style ranch home. “The girls needed space and so did we,” says Ali Wykhuis.
While the couple was at the store they were approached by the production crew of the HGTV show House Crashers. They were asked about the project and what they wanted to accomplish. The crew said they had other people to talk with and would get back to the Wykhuis family later in the day. The crew stopped by checked out the garage and it was a go from there.
In three days time the roll up door was gone the walls were finished and the garage was converted to a mudroom and master bedroom to die for. The family and friends helped the construction too. While everyone was tired everyone was happy with the finished project.
it will allow them to stay in the home the rest of their lives if they want.
The show will air tonight at 10:30 PM on the DIY Network
