Diply Social Team
Diply | Diply

Imagine inheriting your grandparents' home, a place filled with memories and emotions. Now, picture it in a state of disrepair, with a roof that leaks and a kitchen that's falling apart. You decide to renovate, to make it a comfortable place to live. But what if your family, driven by nostalgia and sentiment, opposes your plans? What if they want to preserve the 'shabby chic' aesthetic of the house, even if it's falling apart? This is the dilemma faced by a woman who is now caught in a family feud over her decision to renovate her grandparents' home. 🏚️🛠️

A House Divided: The Battle Over a Family Home

Caught in the crossfire of sentiment and sensibility, our protagonist has to make a tough decision. Should she renovate her inherited home, modernizing it to her liking, or should she preserve it as a relic of the past, to keep peace in the family? With her aunt rallying the family against her, her father supporting her right to do as she pleases, and her mother advocating for a middle ground, the situation is as delicate as the crumbling walls of the house. Let's see how the internet weighs in on this family feud. 🏚️🛠️🤔

"NTA. You own it, if you chose to demolish it, that would be your business. 💪"

NTA, but pick your battles. Some renovation might be easier after your grandma is gone as a practical matter. On the other hand, your aunt sounds like a busybody. If it were me, I'd be tempted to tell her 'Hey, send me a check for the cost of the ceiling repair and that's all we will do right now!' I'm not saying that's a good idea, but I might go that route if it were me. Good luck! 😄
