House #11: Final Pictures

October 4, 2009 · 4 comments

The rehab on The Sunglasses House finished a few weeks ago, and we finally had our house cleaner in there this week to get it ready for the new buyers. The rehab was a tremendous success; after spending over $65K on renovations, we completely remodeled both the interior and the exterior of the house.

On the exterior, we replaced the roof and gutters, replaced about 40% of the siding/trim/sills, rebuilt the back deck, added a fence around the large backyard, cut down some dead trees, landscaped the entire property, and replaced the garage doors. On the interior, we basically rebuilt the house from the studs, including a lot of mold remediation, a new kitchen, new modern bathrooms with a tiled shower and jacuzzi tub in the master, new hardwoods/vinyl/carpet, all new plumbing, all new HVAC, and new plumbing and electrical fixtures. We also finished out the basement room by adding a large window, making it an official bedroom.

Here are the AFTER pictures of the renovation…

The only thing that I personally would have done differently would be to have chosen a different exterior paint color; the new color is very close to the original, which somewhat detracts from the magnitude of the remodeling. That said, the new buyers loved this color, so we were happy to oblige their choice. We’re hopeful that they will be able to close on the house at the end of the week or early next week, as they’re anxious to move in and we’re anxious to move on.

    If I remember correctly, the buyers got this paint scheme from a house that was rehabbed by your company in the same neighborhood and the colors were chosen by your wife who also, loved this paint color… 🙂

    You know, my wife also loves Tabasco Sauce too, but that doesn’t mean she wants it on everything she eats… 🙂

    Yes, Old Bay goes well on top of anything…unlike green paint. 🙂
