I hope you enjoy these weekly updates as I navigate through the business of flipping houses one house at a time!! Come back every Friday to see how this house, aka Shorty, progresses from week to week. To catch up on the progress on Shorty, check out his previous posts here. If you’re new here, (Hello!!!) you can find more about my 5 previous flip houses here. Thanks for coming along for the ride!!
Are you guys ready for the next installment of Shorty the Flip House’s reveal?? Did you catch the living spaces reveal yesterday? Today is bedroom show and tell! Shorty has 3 bedrooms according to town records. One of those bedrooms is a bit atypical and you need to walk through a small bedroom to get to the much larger master- perfect for a nursery or office space. Staging-wise, I kept it all minimal throughout the house and used items I already had.
Without further ado, we’ll start in the first bedroom:
Refreshed just a bit…
The walk-through bedroom, bedroom #2:
I was actually planning to stage this room as a home office with the desk that has now been ousted from my home office-turned-nursery, however we changed our plans last minute. Moving the large desk that I had in mind would have been more than a little cumbersome to get up the stairs and into the space, so we opted for “minimal seating area.”
Lastly for the bedrooms, we find the spacious master bedroom (and I say that non-sarcastically)
For a house of this age (built in 1920), this is quite a spacious bedroom. It’s also nice to see an antique home with decently sized closets in all rooms- it wasn’t a priority back then, so closet space is often a compromise you need to make in an antique home… luckily not the case here!
Totally fresh and livable bedrooms now! Not the spacious bedrooms that you might find in a new construction home, but so cute, oozing character, and will be perfect for a young family if I do say so myself.
My favorite transformations are coming over the next few days. Tomorrow, the bathrooms; Thursday, the exterior; and because I’m trying to build anticipation, I’m saving the kitchen for Friday. Kitchens sell houses, and this is no exception.
See you tomorrow and we can get personal in the bathrooms!
