Back in August, Vicki Gunvalson purchased a lake house in North Carolina, sight unseen. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum wanted a place to stay when she visited her daughter, Briana, and her three grandchildren, so she'd snapped the property up after finding it online.
When she finally saw the home in person, the insurance pro declared that it was "everything [she] thought it would be" — and that it needed a few updates. Vicki started tweaking the lake house shortly thereafter, and posted updates on her progress.
In October, she took to Instagram to share that she'd removed a bathtub and installed a new tiled shower. And by early December, the lakeside digs had been fully furnished.
Vicki's latest posts offered a peek inside inside her North Carolina bedrooms, sitting area, and family room. She also showed the fire pit in her yard, and the pillowed benches on her front porch. With designer Cindy Shockey helming the decor, the home has the rustic and cozy feel of a high-end lodge — and Vicki's grandsons even have their own bunk beds.
