Working on the 3521 house was really fun and frustrating. We had big plans for this house! We wanted to vault the ceiling, make a true master bedroom, open the kitchen and living room and just make the layout and design much more functional. Then the city decided to have a little bit of fun with us and pull us through the ringer with permits on this house. We waited for a year … A YEAR for the city to approve the permits. Ask me how frustrating this is? (Insert a pulling hair out emoji). Anyways, we were able to accomplish all that we wanted to do for this home.
Biggest Change Made: The kitchen. We vaulted the ceiling on the kitchen side and added a custom spiral staircase going up to the loft. We love doing this because we accomplish two things: 1) the height and 2) the square footage.
Paint: Baltic Gray (Benjmain Moore) brick; Delicate White (Olympic) trianges and trim; Eagle Rock (Benjamin Moore) steps and the porch
Square footage: 2500
Purchase Price: $205,000
Our renovation cost was: $80,000
Sold Price: $390,000
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)
