The WI-1 House: Before & After


13 comments

I’m a big fan of BEFORE & AFTER pictures, and The WI-1 House provided lots of great before and after material. The following are pictures taken from the same location/angle (for the most part) both before the project started and after it was completed.

    This is my favorite you’ve shared yet–the ‘side by side’… Excellent contrasts; perfect! Nicely done!

  2. Jay says:

    Agreed with Bo Wagner. You need to do more “side by side” comparisons like this. I LOVE IT

    Impressive; you could buy many houses for the cost of that rehab 😛

    Mr. scott, I’ve noticed that you use the same finishing materials in every house, from the fixtures to the flooring and you deliver a excellent product, but my question is this, if you had a house where the numbers wouldn’t allow you to put the same furnishing would you still by the home, for instance i have a set way that i wanna rehab my homes but i can’t get a certain home for the price that i need to should i just change the way i rehab it or move pn to the next?

  8. J Scott says:

    Hey Kareem,

    We make trade-offs in a lot of rehabs to ensure that we can make a profit. For example, we’ll sometimes use lower-end carpet, or cheaper appliances, or not replace all doors, etc. The key is whether you can resell it for the price you need by doing the lower-end rehab. If so, go for it. If not, pass on the deal.

    J,
    did you paint the siding or replace? If you painted, how did it turn out? Was it vinyl or aluminum?

  10. J Scott says:

    Hey Brad,

    We replaced the entire exterior (siding, trim, gutters, roof, windows, doors, deck, etc)…the new siding is vinyl…

    Hey J, been awhile since i been on here, just reading through updates and blog material.

    Just was curious – what did the re-siding part of this job cost? (material+labor)

    I am not as familiar with exterior cost analysis or rehab, and looking to get an idea for any future rehab opportunities.

  12. J Scott says:

    Hey Shane,

    The new siding on this house cost about $7500.

    I’m amazed you sacrificed so much kitchen storage! the open views are great, but as a buyer, I’d be concerned about so little cupboard space in such a great large kitchen! (maybe they put in an island later?)
