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, 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.
What Would it Take?
The house and yard were in rough shape when the property was acquired. The exterior was extremely run-down due to neglect. The yard had not been cared for and was in need of a total overhaul.
The garage was restored to usefulness by removing the downtrodden fence, replacing the garage door, and re-siding the exterior. Cleaning up the landscaping provided a wonderful yard.
What Were The Biggest Challenges?
The Kitchen was dated and in terrible shape. Every surface would need to be touched. It was also a very closed space and it would be a better use of space if a few walls were removed.
The main living space was dated with an old brick fireplace, wood paneling on the walls, and a dingy carpet that desperately needed removing.
The bathroom was completely redone, and the intrusive window was removed to add back privacy and allow for a beautiful tile surround to the bath/shower. Shelving was also relocated to the other side of the bath, making it more accessible and usable. A new vanity with granite countertop, large mirror, and updated fixtures and lighting made it complete. Swapping the paneling for textured walls, updating the brick fire place for a more modern hearth, and replacing carpet with wide-plank wood flooring made for a much more modern feel!
