Well….it was only a matter of time until this day came! We’ve got our hands full with just about everything else, so why not try flipping our very first home! About a week ago, we closed on this 1946 cape cod cottage and we are so excited to share with you every step along the way.
This beautiful cape cod resides in Milford, among many other historical beauties. We are fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to rescue this home and breathe new life into its outdated, but amazing, bones. We can’t even begin to describe to you the superior quality in which this home was structurally built in. It took over a year for the original owner to hand build this home and the craftsmanship is breathtaking. Our goal is to preserve as much of its “originality” as we can while updating other aspects to bring it into this century. We hope to be able to keep and refinish the beautiful hardwood floors (check out the gorgeous hand laid pattern border surrounding the living room), keep and update the hand carved original dental molding (there were 4 sections on each wall!), update the original wood burning large brick fireplace, keep and refresh the huge original farmhouse style windows that add so much character to the home, as well as many other items on the list!
In the past week, the guys have tackled so many things. We were anxious to get in there and start opening some walls up to help achieve the more desired “open concept” floor plan, demoing the kitchen in preparation of a brand new kitchen from top to bottom, demoing bathrooms and bedrooms, and so much more. When this home is complete, it will be perfect for any family. We are envisioning a 3 bedroom 2.5 bath home with a kitchen, mudroom, dining room, large living room, petite screened in porch, unfinished basement, large walk up attic, and a 2 car garage on a nice shaded lot. We have so many plans and we can’t wait to share more with you as things progress! Check out the photos below and see our work so far.
