I will tell you that I think I set a new record with this one in terms of how easy and smooth it all went. I believe we got this one done right at three weeks. I have to credit the general contractor I used for doing outstanding work ( and me for hiring him ;-) ). Not only was the work done very well but my "management" (aka control) was seldom needed.
This made for an awesome finished product and a bit more sleep for me at night. I am so proud how this house turned out. You can look at the before pictures to see the dramatic difference.
Allow me to walk you through the improvements...
|Cleared out a lot of brush. Fresh paint on shutters, windows|
and trim. Trimmed bushes up front and fresh pinestraw all around.
|Check out the fireplace!!! How you like me now?...|
We tiled the fireplace with granite and of course the
new paint colors brightened the room immensely.
|Ugly dark colors and wallpaper...|
|...be gone! Refinished hardwood floors too.|
|We kept the cabinets because they were in good shape and they |
are solid wood all around which is unusual these days.
Added granite countertops,stainless appliances, new lights
and new accesories.
|Remember this basement?|
|BAM!... First off did a waterproofing trreatment on the wall at the end. |
Then replaced the furnace that was leaking. New insulation,
new framing and new drywall and voila...
|Master bath vanity before.|
|Whatcha think? |
It turns out that was a darn expensive vanity because
it was not standard size. But the end result was worth it...me think.
|Master bath before...|
|Whoop, there it is... Brand new shower with custom tile work.|
|Hallway bath before...|
This house flipping project is located in a nice area that is getting a lot of traffic and there is another house for sale in the same street at a higher price. We are hopping we will get some of that traffic and get an offer quickly.
Soooo...what do you think (about the house not my sad attempt at humor :-) ? Would you have done something different?
