Nessie the Flip House: Reveal Part 2

January 19, 2018 | Before & After, Flipping, nessie the fliphouse

I hope you enjoy these weekly updates as I navigate through the business of flipping houses one house at a time!!  To catch up on the progress on Nessie, check out her previous posts here.  If you’re new here (Hello!!!),  or just enjoy walking down memory lane, you can see my 6 previous flip houses here.  Thanks for coming along for the ride!!  *This post may contain affiliate links*

 

What did you think of Part 1 of Nessie’s reveals??  If you haven’t checked it out yet, go NOW.  I’ll wait.

 

Ok, now that you’re caught up, let’s talk bathrooms!  When we bought this house in July, she only had one dark bathroom.  Now she has one bright full bath and a spacious, utilitarian laundry/powder room.  My own house is jealous.  Back in July, the lone bathroom looked like this:

 

 

It was a decent size but felt like a cave.  Not anymore!!!!  I honestly keep forgetting that the window wasn’t always in the bathroom.  It feels like it belongs!

 

 

A new built-in linen closet replaces the tall cabinet that was once there.  I still have adjustable shelves that need to be installed in the closet, but I hope people will be so busy falling in love with everything else at the open house this weekend that they won’t hold it against Nessie.

 

 

 

Downstairs in an unfinished area that once just held the washer, dryer, a utility sink, and lots of plumbing piping…..

 

 

…now stands a clean and bright laundry/powder room!

 

 

I tried to pack as much functionality into this space: a space for laundry baskets, large shelf with bins for loose change/lost socks/whatever you need them for, a mirror with a shelf, and tile that will hide all sorts of dirt and messes.

 

 

 

 

I really love how these spaces turned out and I hope you do too!  The key to making a small house feel comfortable and not cramped is by making the best use of the space available and that’s exactly what I did.  Added light and function are never going to be a bad thing when selling a house!

 

I’m saving the best reveal for last!  I’ll be back this afternoon with the kitchen and open living area reveal!

  1. Once again, lovely. Laundry in the basement can be dreadful. This is not. And having a loo in the bowling alley is key. No one wants to run upstairs during the juicy movie and use the facilities.

    Where is this room in relation to the bowling alley? I am often confused as I mentioned before.

    Do you have a layout that you could share? Perhaps from your Uber Hubs / Bionic Realtor? I would love to see it. I am sure I am not alone!!

    I wish you lived in Chicago!
