Three or four years ago a house up the street went on the market. Because we’re
nosy curious, we went to the open house. Oddly enough, it was the same layout as our house before Ben made any changes. Several months ago, the same house went up for sale. Naturally, we had to check it out again. In the three years between open houses, a lot of changes had been made. We thought it would be fun and interesting to compare and contrast similar angles between the open house and our house.
I think it’s safe to say the renovations in this house were made with the intention of flipping. Typically that means safer, more ‘beige’ decisions to appeal to the masses. Because we plan to live here a while, we’ve made decisions that we like, without much consideration for resale. We had always planned to open up the wall in our kitchen, but saw this before we had done anything.
The stairs have also been relocated along the north wall where our entertainment center sits.
We thought it was fun to see another version of the same layout. What are your thoughts on the different takes?
