But, although they are now happy and proud of their house, the reform was not so easy. Building permits were very difficult to obtain, since it is a property with neo-Gothic architecture and more than 120 years old.

The house maintains the original finishes, in addition to the stained glass windows. The room in which the transformation is most noticeable is in the kitchen, despite the fact that it was the most difficult area in which to maintain the original style of the building.
