Episode 15 - The Giraffe House

March 24, 2017

Chip and I fell in love with this house immediately and knew we wanted to renovate and flip this home. The character it had made it well worth the overhaul. The only trick to this one was that we didn’t have a client for it. We kind of happened upon it and we both loved it so much that we knew we wanted to put our stamp on it.

The house already had a cottage feel to it, so our goal was to update it by adding modern touches without removing that cottage vibe we loved so much.

Objective: Preserve character of the space while updating it into a useful living space.

Objective: Open up the room to the rest of the home.

Objective: Add modern details that make this space cozy but light.

Objective: Turn this into a useful, creative space rather than storage.

Honestly it was hard to let this house go! The house sold within 3 days after we were finished with it. Congratulations to the new family. We hope they make memories here for years to come!
