107 Granger St Update – Open it Up

Lots happening this week.

We finally sold our 8 Bosworth St rehab. This was suppose to close back on June 17th but we hit a couple delays with the buyers financing. We are also buying two new rehabs that I’ll write about in future posts.

Our 107 Granger St project is moving right along. We’ve got all the sheetrock up, everything is painted, the kitchen cabinets are in, and the plumber and electrician are starting their finish work.

Here are some photos of the changes we have made. (You can see the before pics HERE and the before video HERE)

107 Granger St Springfield

Above is a look at the outside with the new siding and new roof.

Here is a view of the kitchen looking in from the living room. We removed the wall that enclosed the stairs going down into the basement and we also removed the wall between the kitchen and living room.

Here is the view from the kitchen looking into the converted breezeway. We removed the exterior wall that separated the two rooms.

This is a look at the addition that we built off the back of the breezeway. By adding this extra space we were able to move the eat-in area out of the kitchen, which gave us room for more cabinets and appliances.

This is the view standing in the breezeway looking back into the kitchen and living room. By removing all those walls it really makes the floorplan much more open and functional.

Looking at the kitchen from the breezeway. We are now going to be able to run cabinets along most of this wall and fit our fridge.

Here is the bathroom, which we expanded out a little to fit a larger vanity as well as a linen closet.


So there’s a look at some things you can do to open up a floorplan and make a small, boxy house alot more open and functional. It definitely is some extra work, but that’s what it takes to sell houses in this market!
