Welcome to the very beginning of the Post War Premiere house renovation! We closed on this property in the beginning of January, and started the permitting process before then, and we are still patiently waiting for permit approval.
It is a brick ranch, built in 1950, and used as a rental property for many years. It's actually in great shape (hopefully those aren't famous last words 😆), but a little small compared to the other houses in the area, so we are planning to add some square footage.
BEFORE: 1 story, approximately 1200 sq ft, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom
AFTER: 2 stories, approximately 2000 sq ft, 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms
As with most older houses, it has some charming features. I'm hoping to keep the wood burning fireplace (and make it functional 🤞) and the hardwood floors. It also has a cute side porch off of the living room.
All the waiting has given me some time to brainstorm how to make this house one of our best renovations yet. Stay tuned to find out where this one goes!
