BEFORE THE REDESIGN                                      AFTER THE REDESIGN

We replaced carpet with engineered handscraped hardwoods, took the natural oak rails and ballasters and painted them black and white to give a contemporary look, installed new lights and took out builder grade lights.  Painted the walls Desert Twilight by Benjamin Moore, raised the curtain rod closer to the ceiling and installed deep red drapery panels with black shimmer, installed retro light from the 50's inherited from parent, layed down a contemporary rug for design and flair, ran electric and cable lines up the wall for installation of the flat screen TV, installed the electric contemporary fireplace, went shopping and replaced old furniture with creme color leather recliner and love seat, paisley turquoise chair and added some silk plants for a fresh look.  Also added some bling to the walls.


BEFORE THE REDESIGN                                      AFTER THE REDESIGN

This project was a conversion from a family room and powder room to a full rental suite in a lower level townhome.  Objective:  Passive Income.  Result:  $850/month in cash

Lower level installation of barn doors in contemporary smoked glass door panels to create privacy for rental suite in a townhome.  Replaced carpet with laminate tiger wood and added a rug for warmth and design element.  Painted the walls Hazy Skies.  This suite pulls in $850/mo.  Nice little chunk of change for the owner.  It's a fully furnished suite with a shared kitchen and laundry.  There are a group of singles who live in the house.  Call us, we can do this for you!  It took a tad less than 9 months for the owner to recover their investment.  Pure profit after that. 

BEFORE THE REDESIGN                                                       AFTER THE REDESIGN



This is a powder room conversion to a full bath.  The linen closet was in that taller niche area which we opened up the wall on the left to convert to a shower.  The commode was on the opposite wall back in a cubby area blocking a huge space without access.  We jack hammered the concrete to relocate the drain for the commode as well as over to the shower area.  We then opened up the dead space behind where the commode sat and installed the closet.


Where you see the end of the storage box was where the commode used to sit.  So we now have a beautiful full bath for the tenant that rents the space with the barn doors for $850/mo.  We can do this for you if you need a powder room conversion done.  Pull in some good income with a tenant!



This property below pulled in $15k over asking price
and we had these two offers in less than 24-hours!
