    Modern Minimalist

    This home is the perfect example of the endless possibilities that Seattle fixer homes being sold on the market can bring. This 900 square-foot home was publicly listed for sale for, and we were able to help a client purchase for low enough that it would make sense as a flip opportunity. Every surface of this home was taken into consideration when selecting each finish and making all of the stylistic decisions. To maximize the small space and keep the tone of the home light and bright, they decided to stick with fresh neutral tones and to let as much natural light in as possible. The completed renovation took six months to finish.

    Exterior

    The house and yard were in rough shape when the property was aquired. The entry way added some appeal, but the height needed to be raised. The yard had not been cared for, and was in need of a total overhaul.

    Kitchen








    The Kitchen was dated and in terrible shape. Every surface would need to be touched. It would also be a b ...

    Genesee Fixer Upper

    This 1 story with an unfinished basement was purchased by one of our investors for $470k. Went from 2 bed 1 bath to 4 bed 2 bath. After three months of work and a renovation budget of 90k, it was put back on the market and sold for $790k. That is 90k over asking price!!! This house got a lot of attention. Because of the modern updates, buyers fell in love and would pay almost anything to make this their new home.



      


    New sod in the front yard. New cedar door and cedar siding on front with new steel rail on porch for a modern look.



      

    The living room has new hardwood floors, new stack stone fireplace with custom mantle, new recessed lighting, new mouldings, new paint, and retextured ceilings and walls. New furnace, plumbing, and electric.

    Charming Cap Hill Fixer

    We acquired this turn of the century craftsman fixer for one of our investors for $500k. With a 160k fix-up budget, this property just sold for $899,900. We kept the original charm, but upgraded every surface and system.


      


    New roof, new drywall, electrical, plumbing, new paint inside and out. A view deck was added above the one car garage. The left side of the house dormer was extended to create more square footage and allow the second bedroom to have it's own private bathroom. 







    Stairs and rails were refinished and painted, new wide plank hardwood floors installed.






    There was wood everywhere from the floor to the walls. We made it more modern by adding new drywall and fresh paint colors. Kept the bay windows but installed new vinyl windows. 







    In the original home, the wall separated the living room and kitchen. We tore it down to open the space and make it flow well. The kitchen has new SS appliances, qu ...

    Haller Lake Rambler Reno

    Amazing renovation of this 4 bedroom rambler in the Haller Lake neighborhood. The goal was to make this property modern with an open concept. This was an investment property purchased at auction for $300k with a 80k fix-up budget. This property sold for $510k and that was 10k over the original asking price. On the market only 4 days!!!

     

    The exterior got a total facelift, from the modern paint job, to the landscaping. New custom horizontal iron rail, new roof, vinyl windows installed, new garage door, etc.


     


    In the living room, the fireplace and the wall were taken down. The living room now flows into the kitchen creating the open concept. The original hardwood floors were refinished and in some areas laced to match throughout the entire house. 



     


    The original aluminum slider was taken out and updated with french doors. An island was added in the kitchen to make better use of the space. 



     

    The kitchen has a mixture bet ...

    CENTRAL DISTRICT CRAFTSMAN

    This beautiful 1903 built Seattle craftsman nestled right in between Capitol Hill and the Central District was completely redone top to bottom. Hallmarks of the builder include the designer tile, open eat-in kitchen, new wall to wall hardwood floors, and a master suite with great views of the mountains. 




    Upon entering the home, you are greeted with a living room and stairway to the second floor. The railings on the stairs had great detail and received a fresh coat of paint and the wood steps redone. A new larger window was installed to allow more natural light to brighten up the living room. The wall leading into the dining room was taken down to open up the space.










    The walls around the kitchen were knocked down to create the widely desired open concept. The gas range and hood were moved against the wall with a full height subway tile backsplash. An island was installed along with brand new premium appliances.






    In the downstairs powd ...
