This house was a traditional four square with great bones, but had seen a lot of abuse over the years. Layers of linoleum covered the floors, the kitchen was not usable, nor was the bathroom upstairs.There was a very tight budget for the project, as the goal was to rehab enough for the house to sell easily.
All of the floors were brought back to their original wood condition. The kitchen was gutted and expanded into the old mudroom and a 1/2 bath was added. New alder cabinets and granite tile counters were installed. A wall was taken out between the kitchen and dining room to allow for a nice open breakfast bar/buffet. The upstairs bath was revamped with a new tile tub surround, new sink, and a vent fan. New paint was applied inside and out. A large cedar deck was built off the kitchen in the back yard and picket fence was installed to define the large lot.
The house sold quickly!
