For those folks who are following the “DITLofanID”, Mr. A is frozen with fear he will make the wrong decision to fully renovate instead of flip with his Willo project renovation. If you recall this house is a disaster and his plans were at the architect. I am about to wrap police tape, “Do not trespass” around the house and call it a day.
Nothing has happened in over 30 days…. Mr. A has to pay 2 mortgages now and will continue to do so until he makes up his mind. Time is money folks….. Please note: the project would have been demoed and we would be 1/2 way through with his flooring, master bath, etc.
CJ’s flip is going nicely and has his finishing touches coming in this week for the kitchen. I have worked with CJ and I have his full trust that I will steer him right in all flips. The wall was torn down and the cabinets are in place in the kitchen:
Next are the countertops and then flooring-DONE! I only need to “bless” the final outcome and choose an outdoor paint color 🙂
Now onto, Ms. A with that 7,000 sq ft house. My oh my!–beautiful house snuggled in the prestigious Desert Mountain area of North Scottsdale/Carefree area of Arizona. Before photos:
Pretty cool as it is, but this furniture is owned by the couple that will be moving out.
What Ms. A wants is to convert this into an Asian influenced, and what I will call, “Soft Sonoran Zen”(Copyright). She wishes to change the paint color, incorporate the flag stone floors and fill the home with new furnishings and accessories. Ms. A wants to also use as many of her current items, but alas, MANY will NOT make it in the house.
Why? Too small.
She is not grasping the idea that she has now apartment-sized furnishings and teeny-tiny accessories. We won’t be able to see them unless viewed under a microscope in this vast space.
What to do? Supersize!
This living room space needs at least two 102″ sofas and a 54″-60” cocktail table. You’re not going to find those too easily in your stores folks–custom….custom… custom…. and my favorite saying, “it is what it is”, so trust me and adjust your thinking. I know what I’m doing 😉
So, I have given Ms. A a completed concept WITH budget of her wishes. These are a few of the goodies I wish to use:
Now…..what color do you think I will use to “pop” the spaces together in this vast space of the living room, family room and dining room?
Next new client this Friday! She needs to bust out her walls and make an according glass door as well as 2 bathroom remodels.
Stay tuned for “before” photos too 🙂
