Change of view: a before and after client house flip



For the last couple of months I've been working with a very talented builder, (Paul Kuzma of Kuzma Construction) to transform one of the cutest houses. He and his wife are an awesome team... I went to college with one of their daughters and another daughter is one of our favorite babysitters...so I've known and admired them for quite awhile, but it's been awesome getting to know them in a different capacity. Plus, their work is fabulous because Paul notices and invests in every detail. The whole process has been refreshing because nothing is put in haphazardly or just "because it was cheap" which is often the case in house flips. Paul's background is in carpentry, so details matter, and he knows how to execute them beautifully! The house is now on the market, so email me if your interested in more details.

There are so many things I love about this house...the perfect proportions, the mix of old details that add character and new details that add function, beautiful outdoor areas, gorgeous neighborhood, the light, etc X infinity!

 I have to go back and take real pictures (when I'm not trying to juggle kids and a camera at the same time :) but here's an in progress peek...

The original house was cute cute to begin with if you had a really good imagination....

 But it's looking a little better these days :)))

BEFORE: Mudroom into great room (that framed box on the far side became a fireplace)
 AFTER (in progress):
and from the other direction (IN PROGRESS):

I love that we improved upon the original quirky details, making them functional and charming...
