I had received word regarding a distressed property in my area and was very familiar with the community. We were the second people to look at the property and knew right away that the house had great bones but had been abandoned for many years and not taken care of.

Purchasing the property mid-summer put some pressure on us to stay close to our timelines to hit the end of the summer season. The Project was to be done in 6 weeks to hit the September long weekend. The overall budget was $110,275.00 which consisted of a complete full cosmetic and mechanical renovation. The interior received all new flooring, fixtures, cabinetry, paint and stone work. The exterior received all new windows, doors, decking, paint and all new landscaping. The bones of the property were in great shape however, the overall property hadn’t been upgraded and still resembled its original 1981 attire.

Crews consisting of vendors, tradesman, and day labors were managed and organized to work around each other for the entire 6 week project. This took a large amount of time management and organization to not only keep the project on time but to recognize things that have long order times like flooring and granite. As well as tradesman fitting us into their already business summer schedule. We have an amazing group of tradesman and vendors that we work with regularly and many of them went above and beyond to get this project done.

We also had the opportunity to film this project from beginning to end and received some great publicity and social media following from the project. Please click on the link below to see the entire project as it was transformed.
