With construction about to start soon, I think it’s high time to show you guys around our sixth flip!
Above is a rough floor plan of what we’re working with – a little over 1,900 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths on a corner lot.
The first thing you see when you walk in is the wall separating the kitchen from the living room – that’s going to change.
Below you can see the living room toward the bottom of the photo, the dining room on the right, the kitchen in the middle, and the door to the hallway that leads to the bedrooms and bathrooms on the left.
Another view from the front door. The jail bars will be departing.
An awful photo of the bay window in the dining room, which is actually quite nice.
Looking from the dining room back toward the front door. The living room has a huge window!
Let’s head down the hallway to the bedrooms before we check out the kitchen and den. There are 3 strange built-in storage cabinets lining the hallway, one of which will disappear to accommodate an expansion of the master shower, and another one will turn into a space for a stackable washer and dryer.
The first bedroom with a great window, paneling that will be painted out, and a good amount of space.
On the left is the back side of the area that will be turned into space for the washer/dryer, accessible from the hallway.
Across the hall from the first bedroom is the original, pink bathroom.
It’s in great condition, but it must go. We contemplated re-glazing the tile but decided not to go that route since it seems like just a temporary fix for an ugly bathroom. Those of you that have seen/tried out re-glazing, what do you think of it?
The second bedroom also has lots of space and a great window. Oh, and I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned the original hardwood floors yet! They’re throughout the entire house, except for the kitchen and back den.
The master bedroom. If it’s in the budget, we’re going to expand the little prison cell windows on that right-hand wall so that they match the larger windows on the left-hand wall.
And the master bath – cruise-ship sized and a symphony of peach and yellow.
The shower will be expanded, but other than that they bathroom is staying the same size.
Okay, now we’re back to the living room and dining room. We’re going to go through that doorway on the right, into the kitchen.
Bam. How do you like that?
There are 3 doorways into this kitchen, which seems excessive. And the whole layout is strange. That’s all going to change. The washing machine will also be moved to the hallway, and the water heater (which is currently hiding out in that cabinet above the washer) will be moved to the attic.
Here’s a view from the ginormous back den looking into the kitchen. When I say “ginormous,” I’m not exaggerating – it’s about 18 x 30 feet!
A horrible photo of the right-hand side of the den, with the fireplace.
I was standing on a tree stump when I took this photo, hence the odd angle. You’re looking at the garage on the left, the den (which was formerly a porch) with siding in the middle, and then the bathrooms and master bedroom in the bricked area.
Here’s the side of the house from the street.
How do you think this one stacks up against the others we’ve done? Anything that particularly blinded or excited you?
