See Strathmoor Village home in 2021 Louisville Tour of Remodeled Homes

The first and second floors of Cody and Rachel Hambleton’s Strathmoor Village home felt small and closed off, and their unfinished basement had become one big storage room. As the parents of two little girls with another baby on the way, the growing family considered buying another house that would better suit their needs.

“We needed more space and (a place that would) be a little more functional for us,” Cody said. “We were going to buy (another) house and move, but we really just couldn’t find anything that we loved.”

Ready to renovate

Unable to locate a new home that fit the bill, the Hambletons decided to stay put for a bit longer to see if they could somehow make their current space work for their growing family.
