Unsellable Houses

Two Bedroom Dilemma

Season 2, Episode 2

We’re so excited to take you behind the scenes on this week’s reno!

This was a house with tons of potential, but it needed a little help to attract the right buyers. So we dug in and added some major selling points that would get the market excited and clambering to move in!

Colors, Pattern, & Texture Inspos

We leaned into a modern farmhouse style here. Grays and cool neutrals were our base, with gorgeous wood cabinetry and bold tile-work to add texture and interest.

Key Updates

Favorite Project: Back Porch

This home came with an amazing covered back porch. That’s such a win here in the Pacific Northwest, since people love having an outdoor space they can use regardless of weather! 

The porch itself didn’t need any structural work. It was a blank canvas we could use to bring out the possibilities! We hung old farmhouse window panes over the deck railings to create an illusion of privacy between the future homeowners and the neighboring yards. 

We also added a trellis wall to create a beautiful and functional focal point for potted plants and herbs.

We rounded out the space with some on-point outdoor furnishings that demonstrated how the large porch area could be used and enjoyed.

Buyers loved it!

A Word from JL

We love the energy Lyndsay and Leslie bring to every project and this one was no exception. 

Finding the extra flooring in the garage was great, it allowed us to work with the existing flooring even though we were moving a wall and removing the wood stove. Changing the footprint can be a deal breaker when you are trying to work with an existing flooring.

We loved the idea of making the office a third bedroom and with plenty of room to spare in the kitchen, a little framing and rearranging went a long way. 

The main on-suite had a large jetted tub, but no shower and only a single vanity. Building the wall and custom shower as well as adding the plumbing for a second sink really transformed the space giving it a more modern and functional layout.
