The Renovation Story of an Asheville Home from the Gut to the Glory!
Updated: Feb 11, 2020
Welcome to the Asheville Flip House! Believe it or not this home was purchased without walls. Everything was already taken down to the studs by the former owner when the new owners took possession. Upon spending a little time in the space, a vision began to form. The first big change coming is to remove the central brick chimney that is unfortunately falling apart - this is actually happening as I write this article. To make better use of the common space in the home, the kitchen (which was originally located in the smallest room on the main floor) has been relocated to the largest room. We all know how much people love their kitchens (and their gigantic islands!) and we are going to give them a gorgeous one! The room the kitchen used to be in is now slated to become the dining room, which will be open to the living room.
Becoming a Real Estate Staging Dream
Once we add a half bath under the stairs we will have a real estate staging dream. Just a bit about home staging and the benefits of staging a home for sale: Staging a kitchen brings life to the heart of the home while staging a bathroom highlights its functionality. Living room staging makes the space feel homey and cozy. Home sellers take note! Staging a home for sale generally brings in a greater number of buyers by virtue of beautiful and inviting online photos. The more people to see the home in person, the greater the chance of an offer.

Back to the Flip!
The first major outside change was the landscaping and of course exterior paint. The color Waterloo by Sherwin-Williams, a beautiful mid-tone blue-gray was chosen for the main body of the home (house style will be revealed soon!). I put a poll on Insta, asking if people preferred a front door painted coral or mint… Either would look great with Waterloo! In the next blog post I will reveal the winning paint color as voted on by the public. Stay tuned for more changes and even more photos!
