Full House Remodel - Spring 2017

Perfect example of a successful remodeled listing.

When the house looks great and is in a price range many people are shopping, you get over asking sales price and multiple offers.

The owners of this home initially wanted to remodel, but then had second thoughts and just wanted to sell "as-is". I bought the house and did a typical remodel

We skipped the luxury items like soft close doors in the kitchen but splurged on stained pine doors and wood trim because we wanted to a mountain house feel.

We knew that if we made a rental that we would rent, other families would rent it too. Currently, we are the #1 3 bed, 8 guest, unit on Airbnb for gross income according to

Kitchen Area

We kept the size of the kitchen the same, but moved the door to the garage over a couple feet. This allowed refridgerator to connected to the cabinets instead of floating in the middle of the wall. Light grey cabinets with stainless steel appliances. Granite countertop and tumbled marble backsplash. This style works well in most remodeled homes

Living Room

The living room was dark and felt like a cave. We replaced the rotting french doors with a large slider to allow more in more sunlight and painted the dirty brick mantle white. The original slatted ceiling with wood beams made the room look like it was custom made.

I just happened to be at Benjamin Moore paint store while their color consultant was there. She recommended "Copley Gray" with the red door. I loved it! the gray goes with the existing brick and looks good with the green grass. I will definitely use this color again. If I could only do one thing on this house, it would be the exterior and interior paint. You will get the most value from a popular nuetral color.

Overall Style

You will notice that the colors and style are throughout the entire house. Try to avoid mixing carpet, tile and wood. The laminte flooring in this house tied evertything together. The wall color was light and bright and we painted over the dirty bricks mantels with the same white trim color.
