Our first house!!!

Before B and I moved to St. Louis we owned a single family home in Iowa. We flipped the whole house in a little over 2 years. With some determination and Brendan's know how and some help from our family we were able to complete the project, move to St. Loius and sell the house within a month of moving. Here is our journey flipping a house...

I won't make this post super long so I will be doing this in a two part post. First the outside and the kitchen!! Two large projects...See what ya think!


The side before it was painted. We had to sand the cedar siding, fill it, sand again, prime and paint...can you say PAINT IN THE ASS!!! Brendan, myself and my mother in law did 99% of this!







After it was all painted and ready to go on the market!

This was one of the happiest days of my life!

The kitchen was a complete overhaul! It was a scary scary yellow when we moved in! The cupboard were in bad shape and all the appliances needed replaced! So we overhauled it and were very happy with the results! We were very lucky to have all the new appliances given to us by my family members that were getting rid of them! So for free we got a dishwasher, an oven and a cooktop. Can't beat that! Here are spme before and after pics...






Putting in the wood floors...



After= much better!


Brendan built this end cabinet for the cooktop


Stay tuned for the basement and living room renovations!!!

I love the wood floors in the kitchen!! They are so much easier to keep clean than tile!
