Mackrous Family Wins Charlottesville Makeover Project!



We are happy to announce the Mackrous Family as the winners of this year’s Charlottesville Makeover Project. With a townhouse in Stonehenge and a new baby, winning the Makeover Project will help them turn their house into the perfect home in which to grow their family for decades to come.

The Mackrous’ came to visit Charlottesville in late 2010 and fell in love with the area. Then, in 2012, they honeymooned here. It was then that they began to dream of moving to Charlottesville. In 2013 they made the move and truly believe that they were meant to be here.


They love Charlottesville and they love their Stonehenge neighborhood. They also love their townhouse, but it is an older house and has many areas that could use improvement. Improvements that they can’t afford, like renovating the 1970’s basement.

The Mackrous Family are delighted to be the winners of the Makeover Project, and they are extremely thankful to all of the participating vendors: Intrastate Pest Control and Intrastate Service Company, First Heritage Mortgage, Airflow Systems, Inc. and Organized Design.
