Emily Simpson Gives an Update on Her Home Renovation: “It Would Be Easier to Move”

“Will my house ever be done?” the RHOC cast member asked while showing the progress of her ongoing renovation.

In August 2022, Emily Simpson showed via her Instagram Stories that she was renovating her house and declared in the caption, “Someday it will be amazing.” Exactly one year later, The Real Housewives of Orange County cast member shared an update on her home transformation — and it’s safe to say she’s feeling just a bit frustrated.

How to Watch

In an August 6 Instagram Story video, Emily showed her in-progress formal living room. “Will my house ever be done?” she asked in a caption. “I haven’t even started remodeling the kitchen yet. At this point I think it would be easier to move.” 

Although Emily has no immediate plans to actually move, she has previously considered the idea for the future. In a 2022 Instagram Ask Me Anything, Emily explained that she would move out of California “someday.” As for where she would end up, Emily mused, “Most likely Utah. Maybe Wyoming.”

For now, however, Emily is focused on redoing her Orange County home. While the majority of the formal living room is currently wrapped in protective tarps, the video above shows what it looked like before the construction process began. “It’s that room where you try to keep your kids out of so that they don’t destroy anything,” she said in the clip. “So you have like one nice room in your house.”  

Just steps away is another beautiful living room, which Emily describes in the video as “a great space for the kids and the family to hang out.”

Emily Simpson’s Recent Home Updates

Although several rooms of Emily’s house are still under construction, she did recently share an exciting update about her sons’ bedroom. In July 31 Instagram Stories, Emily documented the process as the Bee Organized team helped organize the boys’ room, which Emily quipped was “a disaster.” 

“I love how involved my boys are in this process,” Emily wrote over a video of her sons helping the team organize their toys. Once the process was done, Emily showed the incredibly organized room and gushed, “How awesome does it look?”
