However, the odd layout of the house left a lot to be desired. Hence, they appealed to Kim, who converted the lackluster property into a beautiful house to die for.
“3 years ago @highnoon asked me if I’d be interested in renovating 7 houses in 24 weeks for @hgtv so of course, I just said yes!” Kim shared in her Instagram post. “I look back on confident, naive 3 year agos me, and feel endeared to her. I of course could not know all the things this experience would be, and it was such A THING, more humbling moments and wild moments than I can count.
