The property rehabilitation process consists of three key components: the interior renovation, exterior renovation, and the individuals you choose to accomplish it. This property had many cosmetic flaws and very limited "wow" factor as far as salability. From a distance it looked like a double wide trailer with a makeshift carport. We started with the facade by using an eye catching grey vinyl siding that wrapped the entire house. Mike and Doug debated the issue of adding a garage. In the end the garage added much-needed curb appeal and practical optimization of open space. We removed the patio fence that stifled the perfect seating area, added new windows and shutters, then coated the driveway with a thin layer of liquid asphalt.
Small kitchens present their own set of challenges. Because of the lack of space we opted to keep the same layout of the original cabinets but replaced them with dark wood high-gloss cabinetry and laid laminate "stick um" flooring that looked like wood. In addition, we also substituted the dated cream colored appliances for black ones. Finishing with granite countertops we turned this kitchen into one that anyone would be proud of.
