House 3, Week 19 - White Out!

One lesson learned on the first project house was that people buy white. Apparently even the most subtle colors cause potential buyers to have brain seizures that close their wallets.

So this week, when the magic paint sprayer went into action, you can bet it was filled with white paint.

Oh look! A white room. How boring EXCITING!

Helper Bob is back in action and painting trim.

A trick of the camera turned the master bedroom from the (ugh) white into this cheery yellow. If only.

The worst of the (you guessed it) white tiling is done in the bathroom. Nothing like standing in a tub and putting tile in over your head to make those shoulders ache at the end of the day.

The Mr. is rubbing the grout down which is grey when wet, but dries..... WHITE!

The last dumpster was removed on Friday. That's a huge milestone. Plus now I can get a good shot of the front of the house.

Here's the before...

And the after! A charming WHITE house. I hope nobody is scandalized by the daring green shutters. Ish.

Back in the barn, the kitchen cabinets are in the very early stages of building. Some cut up wood that will soon be glued back together and installed.

Things are coming together fast now. Feeling rather optimistic about the original targeted listing date of March 1st.


  1. White may be Boring but remember that white turns to GREEN... when the papers are signed..

  2. Vanilla is what sells! Look in' good!!

  3. It really is coming along! It looks great! Our house is white with green shutters. Love it!

  4. I want to renovate a Victorian next time, but Nancy says I'm finally getting good at Ranches.
