Determination to save house pays off in finished product


But, Mostafa Ardestani took a risk on buying it, saving it and restoring it. He made it happen and it is now a completely different place. (Photo by Correne Martin)

Two years ago, this dilapidated house, at the corner of Beaumont and Wisconsin in Prairie du Chien, was ready for a county auction.

Pictured, from a different corner of the room, is the main kitchen completely redone with modern colors and textiles.

This was just one of the bedrooms inside the residence, before. After purchasing the house, Mostafa Ardestani hired out a complete remodel. He braced a falling down exterior wall, redid the upstairs ceiling entirely and basically overhauled every surface from the basement to the roof. It has gone from uninhabitable to impressive.
