After years of renting in Los Angeles, 32-year-old Laura Radke and her husband, Phillip Radke, finally found it. Their new home.
“We bought the ugliest house on the block,” Laura said.
Dirty peach stucco, rotting wood, burnt-out front yard — it wasn’t exactly what they had imagined for themselves and their new baby.
“I remember when we came here, looking around, trying to keep an open mind,” Phillip said.
And that’s how Laura said they prepped their parents.
“We were like, ‘OK, we bought this house, but they advertised it as ‘needs cosmetic work.’”
