Before and After (Panorama Dr, Salt Lake City, UT)

For anyone who follows me on Instagram knows about my obsession with this house. I felt great about it when we first walked through before we did anything to it. I just new it was going to turn out amazing! And I was right, the before and after pictures speak for themselves.   I had a great time picking out all the finishes on this house. Because it’s more of a mid century modern house, I wanted to put very subtle details in the house that reflected that era with some simple abstract features without being too personalized. Because as we all [...]

Before and After (1877 N, Orem UT)

This was Nate’s parents house and the house he grew up in since he moved to Utah. It's crazy how things work out too!  So Nate's parents ended up buying this house and then we bought this house from them to flip! It was a trip for Nate to watch the house he semi-grew up in, totally transform! And for me, we would go over to this house every Sunday night for dinner and it’s almost like it was my house too. For flippers like us, we are always thinking about what WE would do if we were to renovate this [...]

Before and After (Edith Ave, Salt Lake City)

Ohh the drama with this house you guys, seriously UUUGGGHH! Okay so we took this house from zero to hero. NO joke. We made it an open floor plan; vaulted the ceiling and added a loft; dug more of the basement out to add a bedroom, bathroom and laundry room and put in new everything … EVERYTHING! We listed the property and on the first day on the market we had 9 offers! This started a bidding war and we were all, “SWEET!” … Ya, no. Not sweet. This is another great gun-shy example of people so quick to put in [...]

Color Scheming and How to Coordinate

Whether you are renovating your house, someone else’s house or a flip, you generally start trying to come up with a color scheme of sorts. But with ALL the different styles, colors and options out there, it can be overwhelming and hard to choose. And if you’re like me, you kind of like a LOT of colors and could see a lot of things working for you. The way I handle this overwhelming amount of options is I choose paint last. I go with something that catches my eye; some detail that I LOVE and then base the rest of the [...]

Before and After (Provo, UT)

Nate really wanted to buy this house when it was presented to us … I, however, was not so confident. It's in a great area of Provo but its backyard is also on one of the busiest streets in Provo. With past experience of selling houses on a busy street, I was not all that excited to be doing this deal. There wasn’t a ton of stuff to do, just a couple bigger problems to solve like, mold in one of the garages, too much bare stucco on the exterior of the house and the backyard was all cement making it feel pretty [...]

3 “Simple” Ways To Change the Look and Feel of Your House

So if you’re like me, you are always thinking what you would change about your house.  It’s really too bad that everything costs money, am I right?! Why do we have to pay for things!?

Before and After (1200 South, Bountiful, UT)

This house has left me with a bitter taste; nothing to do with the remodel but with just the process. We had a lot of great ideas, it just too long to execute it ... maybe about 8 months too long! (Thank you hired contractors who don’t show up and don’t do the work … awesome!) And the longer you wait the more money it costs you, therefore the less money you make … or the more money you loose. And on top of that we went through several buyers.  And then on top of that, I again only have 2 [...]

FAQ’s About House Flipping

Here are the top 4 questions we get asked when people find out that we renovate houses for a living:  What is the HARDEST part? Dealing with delays. When we are having to deal with contractors that don’t show up or are just slow, it can be extremely frustrating! When we have to pull permits that are taking WAY longer than it has to be, that is even more frustrating because it’s completely out of our control. At least with slow contractors we can reason with them or make a decision to hire someone else who is willing to work faster and better. [...]

Before and After (Emerson Drive, SLC, UT)

This one is up there on the favorites list for me. The job took forever to do! But seeing as we were working on near 10 houses at once, that’s bound to happen I guess … just an opportunity to get better at managing and scheduling right? We can always get better at what we do, no matter what it is that we do. So for Emerson Drive, we refinished the hardwood floors to a grey stain, which I nearly like. I think it turned out looking a little too painted; whereas I, was wanting it to be me a more weathered [...]
