Myrna's House Flip

Myrna, who teaches my cooking class, has become friends with my oldest daughter and I. Her husband Jeff and her have bought 2 houses in Cambridge ont. to flip. They are hoping to help get there son established in the area as he has moved there. We had the opportunity to pay them a visit last week and I took some pics for my blog.
I wish I had a before picture but I don't ...suffice it to say this started out as a small little bungalow

the back door

I love this light they have them out side at all the doors 

You walk into this room from the side is the family room. Jeff did all the bookcases himself.. He is a master carpenter.

The kitchen with a massive island, granite and stainless steel appliances..The fridge is yet to come.

The lights above the island...they match the ones them. And this is Jeff.

The staircase going upstairs..I dont know if you can see it but there is a small medallion on the post at the bottom of the flips up and you can dismantle the railing in order to get large furniture pieces up the stairs. Genius.

the attention to detail is everywhere.

One of the stain glass windows they re purposed for the project

One of the two eating areas for the kitchen.  

I included this picture. Jeff made this clock himself  Love it

Notice the special attention to detail in this doorway.
I love this house and it is in a very nice neighbor hood . I am sure they will have no trouble selling it.
I thought I took pictures of the bedrooms but I guess I forgot.. They are not furnished anyway..
If I ever get to see some before pictures I will post them for sure.

Till next time.
