A man in the US, Micheal Gray, has shown great love to his wife after he bought an abandoned house and renovated it to a great taste.

Gray, who lives in Detroit, bought the home from his nephew for $1500 (N545,250) and moved into it immediately.

Before the purchase, the man was living in the basement of his niece. A year after in 2010, the man started a 10-year renovation plan that would thoroughly transform the house.

In speaking with Business Insider, the Detroiter said that he bought the house after he had an accident in 2008.
