Trip and Chris Smith were perfectly content living in their Riverview home when they were approached by a potential buyer. After striking up a deal, the Smiths needed a new place to call home, and Trip’s family property immediately came to mind.
“This is part of a piece of property that Trip’s family purchased in the 1950s,” explains Chris. “We needed somewhere to go and had always loved this piece of property, so we purchased it from Trip’s mother and uncle with the intention of building this house.”
