Louisville, next Thursday father-daughter duo Barlow and Brenna Books are leading another "Flipping A House 101" class at Monnik. To get you ready for all of their amazing tips and tricks for flipping a house, we want to share the best of Brenlow Properties before and after pics. You're not going to believe what they can do to make an old house feel brand new again!

Beautiful Backyard Freed

From Chainlink Fence

Yesterday I finally dug up the "before" pictures of #flip2 from my mom's computer- which means a whole new set of #beforeandafter pics! πŸ‘†Here is the rear of the house. We took off the old screened-in porch (which was literally falling apart) and replaced it with a new, bigger back deck. We also replaced all of the windows and exterior doors, painted the exterior, removed the chain link fence, cleaned up the yard, and put fresh gravel down in the parking area. πŸ‘Š We had multiple offers on this house and sold it for over asking price at the open house. πŸ‘ We are dying to get our hands on another house in this neighborhood, it's such an amazing area with so much character and charm! #crescenthill #sold #exterior #landscaping

From Barren Basement

to Beautiful New Bedroom

Next up: #beforeandafter of the #basement at #flip10. πŸ‘ This space was completely unfinished except for some storage space in the back corner. We framed out a #bedroom, a full #bathroom, a separate unfinished storage space and then this party room. We sprayed the ceilings black to make them disappear, boxed in the support columns, then added this custom-built entertainment center and carpet. To the right (past the support posts) is a gorgeous wet #bar πŸ˜‰ πŸ™Œ Now, this area is a great space for kids to play, for family movie night, or for game-watching parties! ➑️ #paint color is @sherwinwilliams Agreeable Gray. Bar (not visible) is @wellborncabinet from Century Home Furnishings here in #louisville. #fixerupper #finished
