Did I tell you that we put new windows in at the flip? They were installed last week and I am obsessed with how they turned out!
We scoped out houses around the neighborhood that had the same or similarly colored brick and they all had white or almond colored window frames – and I thought that looked kind of yucky. So I took a leap of faith and we ordered windows with bronze frames instead, and I totally think it was the right call!
Here’s how the house looked (from the listing photo) when we bought it, with old windows and iron bars:
And here’s a glimpse of how the house looks with the shiny new bronze windows:
It obviously still has a long way to go, but don’t the new windows look nice?
Here’s a closeup:
Say hi to the pregnant lady!
And here’s another before and after:
We also switched out this ginormous window for an awesome new slider. Access to the new deck! (You can see an in-progress photo of the deck here.)
An action shot of the new slider going in . . .
And there it is! The photos are horrible since everything is back lit (hopefully we’ll actually have light bulbs in the recessed lights soon), but you get the idea. In person, the slider lets in so much light!
It even has a nifty sliding screen so that you can leave the slider open without letting out pets or letting in bugs. I’m trying to show you the screen in the photo below . . . ooh, and you can get a pretty good view of the deck!
Remember how the kitchen looked before?
Well it’s looking a little crazy right now, but you can see how the end of the kitchen was framed in to create a laundry room. It’s going to be awesome.
And finally, no renovation post is complete without a photo or two of the carnage. Those poor old windows didn’t stand a chance.
When replaced the windows in our own home last summer I was shocked by what a big difference it made in how the house looked – and I think the flip is getting that same benefit. Hopefully buyers will agree! Have you replaced the windows in your house?
