The Tree Lot House - House Flip #1 2019

Updated: Sep 22, 2020


This house was built in 1984 and was pretty much left unchanged since the original design. A really nice house with great bones, but needed some major updating! Right up our alley! It took us 5 months to complete the renovation.

The home has a small kitchen, combined living room/dining room, master bedroom suite (down), 2 large bedrooms (up), and a 4th bedroom/bonus room above a large 2 car garage. In addition, it has 3 full baths, laundry room, loft space, and a very large covered back porch. WAIT, there is more! This home also has a walkout basement, which is a rare find in Tennessee due to its rocky grounds.


Let me show you some before pictures. First the kitchen!


As you can see - we had a lot of work to do! Wallpaper, multi-shaped kitchen cabinets, outdated appliances, cheap countertops and laminate flooring completely worn out!


So here we go! Future 4ce team working together to get the job done #demolition #future4ce #homeflip #renovation #flippingmd

We removed all cabinets on the right side of the kitchen, as it was way too busy, saving only the tall cabinet. We removed all appliances, flooring, countertops, and wallpaper. Cleaned up the trim around the window to provide a more updated look. We expanded the kitchen entrance to create a more seamless flow with the dining and living room. The space will feel larger and more connected when we're done.

Now lets rebuild the space!

The tall cabinets was moved all the way to the end of the wall and connected to the cabinet we created for the fridge. At the opposite end we created a breakfast bar so there now is an area for you to sit and enjoy your coffee and check your mail :-)

All cabinetry was sanded down and painted in crisp white. Pot lights were added in the ceiling for more improved lighting. New granite counter tops were installed, subway tile backsplash, new appliances and beautiful bamboo flooring.

Here is the finished results:

So much better, right!


Lets jump to the Living and dining room

First a little "decluttering" must happen! Space emptied, carpet removed. We added pot lights for improved lightening. New fresh paint on walls and ceiling. Beautiful bamboo flooring was installed #lumbarliquidator #bamboofloor

Then on to the fire place!

After a good cleaning, the insert was sprayed with special heat resistant paint. The outside brick got a nice coat of black paint. #fireplacemakeover

Here is the final result:


Let's move onto the master suite!
