    Wow you are a great flipper! This house looks terrific!

    Thanks Shawn…I appreciate that!

    I really like what you did with this house. I especially love the exterior color. Care to share with us what color it is?

    Also, how do you determine what to do for kitchen flooring? I see sometimes you have hardwood, sometimes tile, and sometimes what looks like laminate.

    Hey Dave –

    I’ll look up the exterior colors for that house and will post as soon as I find them…

    As for how we choose kitchen flooring, it is based upon our choice of flooring for the rest of the main living area. Specifically:

    – If we use carpet in the living room, we’ll use vinyl/laminate flooring in the kitchen
    – If we use hardwood in the living room and it’s an open floor plan (the living room flow right into the kitchen), we’ll use hardwoods in the kitchen
    – If we use hardwood in the living room and it’s not an open floor plan, we’ll generally use tile in the kitchen

    Thanks for responding so quickly.

    The follow up question would be, how do you decide what flooring to go with in the rest of the living area. I have a house that has hardwoods throughout, except for the kitchen & breakfast room. They do need a major refinishing, but that can be done. The questions is: do buyers prefer carpet or hardwoods, and how do you make that decision.

    Dave –

    The exterior color on The DIY House is:

    Cocoon – Sherwin Williams #6173

    The trim color to go with it was:

    Antique White – Sherwin Williams #6119

    As for your flooring question, I’ll write a upcoming blog post on that, as it’s a bit more in-depth…

  8. Love that color with the the white. I bet that color would look good with black trim too. Looks great also!!

    When adding a deck, do you have a rule of thumb on how much it will cost you (material & labor) per size (per square foot, etc…)?

  11. J Scott says:


    We pay somewhere in the $10-12 per square foot range…

  12. Sal Martinez says:

    Thanks. By the way, the finished product looks great!

    You guys do a great job! The wife and I are in the process of looking for our first flip, but we seem to be too scared to pull the trigger. What is your background? These houses are done REALLY well and after reading your site, we’re not sure we could do this good of a job.

    Another question: How did you go about assembling your team? You must have an awesome project manager.
