Here we have another example of  waiting, waiting , and waiting on the city for permit approval … or better known as giving the city everything they want as fast as we can get it to them but they think one year is fast enough for us.  Thank you for THAT.  But enough trash talk.  At least we have a spectacular finished project.  Every time I walk through this house I fall more in love with it.  I love the A-symmetry of the ceiling.  Again, we vaulted the kitchen.  We were not able to use the ceiling this time to add loft space and we didn’t want to get into any fights with the permit office but I loved the result.  (PS: Sorry for the lack of before photos.  My computer crashed and I can’t seem to find the shots I took pre renovation … oh well)

Biggest Change Made: Master bedroom.  We made a true master bedroom with a walk in closet and big bathroom.

Paint: Harbor Gray (Sherwin Williams) brick; Dior Gray (Benjamin Moore) triangles, shakes and siding; Delicate White (Olympic) trim; Naval Blue (Sherwin Williams) shutters and front door

Square footage: 2400

Bedrooms: 4

Bathrooms: 3

Purchase Price: $279,000

Our renovation cost was: $110,000

Sold Price: $490,000

There are obviously more costs in there than just a renovation cost and the purpose of this blog isn’t to tell you $ for $ how much we made on each deal but I’ll let you use your imagination and guess how much money we made or lost (because unfortunately that happens too)
