My passion in life is home improvement…
…and flipping houses, fixing up rental units (yup I’m a landlord!) and renovations on our own fixer upper.
The short story is in 2015 I flipped a house with my boyfriend and together we took an old dilapidated home and restored it to its former glory with modern updates.
We put it up for sale at the wrong time of the year and were forced to rent it out for the winter and spring.
Then, in July of 2016 we took our profits and purchased a long term investment property which has a 3 bedroom/1 bathroom house (soon to be a 4 bedroom/2 bathroom house) and a 1 bedroom/1 bathroom apartment (which we rented out after an extensive high end renovation) above the garage.
I document our home improvement journey here on the blog while trying to give the best advice I can on home improvement. Advice like how to save money on a kitchen remodel or tutorials on how to install a vinyl plank floor or even a simple doorknob!
My favorite projects so far have been:
- The DIY white concrete counter we made (and stained concrete vessel sink bathroom vanity!)
- Gel staining our first flip’s kitchen cabinets
- Turning ugly paneling into what looks like smooth drywall (with just spackle and paint)
