Oakmont House Transformation Week 1 Part I

Oakmont House Before Transformation | Part 1 #realestateinvesting
Kevin:
Hey, good morning guys. Happy Tuesday. This is Kevin and I am going to showcase you guys this newest flip that we just started demoing two days ago. So, let me just turn the camera around, I want to show you the neighborhood. It’s actually a very nice neighborhood of Arden. So, there’s just older people that live in this neighborhood.

This is the third container that we have. There’s a lot of demolition that we did. Right behind this garage, this detached garage, was a storage that was taken out because it was dry rotted. So, you can actually see the remains of the storage that is actually attached to this side of the house. This house has a big, big, big yard. I think it’s probably a quarter acres. All the way out in the back. I think you can do, down the road for sure, build a ADU. See how big the yard is? Backyard?

We got some like visible dry rot over here, this side of the roof. And I don’t know if you can see that hole over there. You see? That’s a garage door. So, that garage door will need be replaced. Again, this is a one car garage, detached garage from the house. The driveway looks okay. How does it look? Looks okay here. But as you go here, there’s some cracks that will need to be addressed. And then you get this step up with these concrete blocks. So, what I would do, probably… It was propped up because of the root over there and they just puts on concrete blocks to prevent people from tripping and that’s just like Mickey Mouse work. So, we’ll have to repave this portion of the driveway most likely. Here, I don’t like the steps, so we’ll do a ramp down from there.

So, let’s go to the main house. So, what he did, or the original owner did, which I’ll tell you later, and I’m going to tell you what we’re going to do actually in the back of the house. So, this is the kitchen, the original the kitchen. Can see the lines that were drawn for the wall kitchen cabinets. So, they’re going to remain the same. I’m thinking about just patch this up so that we can actually make a bigger kitchen here. We have my designer draw it up for me. And behind this wall here is the laundry room. It’s a tiny little laundry room here. And there’s actually a door here, so we’re not going to do a door because there’s just no space for it. You see, if you do a door, you can’t really open it and there’s really a very tight spot here already. So we’re not going to do anything, just leave it open like that without door.

So, what I was thinking is to just close this part out, make a wall out of this so that I can extend the kitchen. But then again, if I were to build a dishwasher right next to the sink, if you open this way, it’s going to be in the way of the cabinets here. So, there’s actually a reason why this opening was here, just so that you can actually have that open without hitting any cabinets. So, I’m having my designer draw something where we can possibly close this opening and extend the kitchen this way. All right? So, that’s the kitchen.

So, when I first walked the house, there’s only one bedroom. It’s actually a really, really huge bedroom. This is what the bedroom looks like. So, I’ll do a panoramic view of it for you guys. Okay? And that’s the closet for the bedroom. So, the plan here is actually to make two bedrooms out of this one big gigantic bedroom here. So, you see where that ceiling is over there? That’s going to be the separation of these two bedrooms out of this one big, gigantic bedroom that we’re going to build here. So, we’re going to take this out and we’re going to build a wall from here on. And if you see behind where the outlet is, there’s actually a door. So, you see there’s actually a patch work for that door that was originally, there. So, they just patched it up and make a big, big bedroom out of it. So, we’re going to restore that and make this part as one bedroom and what is coming from that arch there on the top of the ceiling, is going to be the second bedroom.

So, the door for the second bedroom is here. And the door for the first bedroom is right there. We’re going to just open that up. that was patched. And we’re going to build a closet here for the second bedroom. So, let me turn the camera around here. There’s going to be a little closet in the corner for the first bedroom. For the second bedroom, what we’re going to do is, we’re going to knock this out. All the framing here, we’re going to knock it out. We’re going to extend the bedroom all the way out here to where that line is. This whole area here is actually the bathroom. We’re going to just shrink it down to right here. Down to where that pencil drawing is all the way out here. That’s where the bathroom is going to be. We’re going to give more real estate to the second bedroom.

We need to rewire all the electrical and also all the pipes. When you rerun the pipes, actually extend this out here. Push it out. And this is where the sink and the toilet is going to be. And look at this shower right here. It’s so tiny. And you got some shelves over there right next to the shower. This will have to go. And we’re going to extend the shower all the way out here to where the shelves are. So, this is going to be a six foot costume shower that we’re building with the rain forest shower head, as well as the hand held shower head. It’s going to look really nice by the shower valves, shower system already, and it’s on the way from Amazon. It’s like $180. So, that’s a good deal.

So, like I said, the framing here is going to go and we’re going to push it out to where the drawing is and that’s going to be where the second bedroom is going to end and we’re going to open that window. You see the plywood that is over there? So, that’s going to go. And we’re going to build a little closet right here in the corner. So, that’s going to be the second bedroom.

So, that’s the restructuring of this house that we’re going to do. And there is actually some funky work here. You see right here? There’s actually two closets. We’re just making this into one. Knock these two by fours out. And this closet is deeper than the other one, so we’re going to bring this out so that it flushes with the second closet. So, we need to drywall this part. And the reason that we cannot bring this further in, is behind this wall here is the fireplace. Actually the chimney. So, there’s a reason why it’s there and it doesn’t flush.

So, possibly a pantry. I think that’s a good idea. But then the pantry is actually behind the kitchen here right way where you’re entering into the laundry room and that opening there, if you can see, is possibly going closed. So, maybe just a hallway closet here I’m thinking. If I were to build a pantry, most likely, it’s going to be right where the kitchen is. So, possibly here, this space, kind of like a desk space here, the corner, we can build a pantry, a little pantry right here, I would say.

So, that’s it. And there’s some dead space here so we’re going to build some shelves where you can put plants and cups here. That’s going to be right next to where the range is going to be. So, that’s kind of like the major work that we’re doing into this house is to build a second bedroom out of it and then really to build a custom shower. A six foot shower. And also to just make space for the second bedroom. So, this will have to go. All the framing here will have to go to make space for the second bedroom. All the way out to where the window is. That’s going to be where the second bedroom is going to be. Starting from where you see the arches. So, that’s where the second bedroom…

And we’re going to open this up. There used to be a window here. It got patched up, but you got the windows behind these plywood. So, we’re going to open that up. That window needs to be changed and there’s also some wooden windows that window change to do. This window will need to be changed. This one is a wooden window, so this one will have to go as well. All the other ones are vinyl dual pane windows, so we’re going to keep those. Take out those shelves and put a wall there. I just like everything to be minimalistic. That ceiling fan will go. We’re going to replace that with a chandelier. This is where the dining room is going to be and this is the living area.

So, we’re turning this into a short term rental actually. Believe it or not. Why? It’s a great area. This is a great area and it’s going to be one of the first places, short term rentals, that we have in this area. Check it out 95815. Zip code is 95815. Very nice neighborhood. You have homes that are… it’s just a little pocket of Arden. Just nice little houses with older folks. And they just do a very well upkeep of their homes and stuff. And it’s just really quiet. You see? Got a nice tree here. So, neighbors really, really take care of their own houses. That’s really nice.

I think this location is very convenient. Right next to freeway 50, I would say. And I don’t know if you can see, these are nice houses over here too. So, definitely it’s one of these ugly homes, the ugliest house on a very nice street. So, I really like it. So, we’re going to keep this one. We’re going to put this one in our portfolio. Short term rental this one out and it’s going to be nice. Today’s a beautiful day by the way. You got the sun that’s out. Really beautiful, nice neighborhood. I really like what I see and it’s going to get better. Way, way better when we finish remodeling the house. Oh yeah, for sure. Super nice for people visiting family in the neighborhood. It’s a very great convenient location.

So I think… So, that’s it. This is Kevin. [inaudible 00:14:54] buy houses. We’re always looking to buy more, so if you have any houses, fixers, just DM me and I will be able to tell you how much we’re going to offer. All right? So till next time, take care. Bye.

House Exterior
