Dori REVEAL part 3

October 13, 2015 | Before & After, Dori the fliphouse, Flipping

I hope you enjoy these weekly updates as I learn to navigate through the business of flipping houses.  My latest flip house, Dori sports the 3 L’s in real estate, but needed more than a bit of creativity to make the house sellable. You can find more about this house and about my 4 previous flip houses here.

Last Dori reveal!  Friday we took a look at the exterior and bedroom transformations.  Yesterday was the bathroom and living room.  Today? Today is the most exciting of all!!  The kitchen and dining room!

Dark, windowless, and closed off with a terrible layout.  A chef’s dream!



Can we just look at these side-by side for a sec?


I’m pretty sure the original kitchen layout had the stove and fridge right next to each other between the counter and the door.


Slightly improved.


The kitchen when I bought the house…. I really have no words.  No one would want to cook anything here.


This kitchen, however is a different story.

The last cave to be brought into the light (literally) was the dining room.


The new slider was a game-changer for this room.





SO what do you think??  While this house didn’t have as much history and character as Millie, I think it’s my biggest transformation yet!

Now that I’ve shared the reveal, I’ll share the real estate listing.  If you know anyone on the market for a gem in Northborough, MA send em my way!  We’ll be having another open house this Sunday.

  1. You did an amazing job. The sliding doors in the dining room knock it out of the park.I´m sure Dori is thanking you from the bottom of her house-heart. It can now be a beautiful and livable home for a delighted new owner.

  2. Your renovation is brilliant. Congratulations — hope you find a buyer quickly. Thanks for helping to make the world a prettier place. (And btw, does the previous owner know you are blogging about “Dori”? Just curious.)
