151 Bowdoin St, Historic Rehab

151 Bowdoin St Before

Our historic beauty at 151 Bowdoin is complete. All thats left is cleaning and staging the home.

This was an epic project. When we bought the house we knew we were in for a challenge.It looked like a big old purple haunted house!

The house was basically stripped when we got it…. nothing was left in the kitchen, there was no plumbing or heating systems, and the exterior was in deplorable condition.

In the end I think it came out real nice.

Have a look at the unstaged photos: (you can see all the before pics HERE and the before video HERE)

    What color paint do you use on the walls?

  2. looks great ,good workemship, we do the same in norwalk ,ohio

  3. Hey Matt where did you get the body sprayer for the shower and how much was it. I’ve seen a couple on amazon and eBay for about 350 but am a little skeptical that they may be no good.
    I’d love to put them in our rehabs if the price were right.
    Nice job on this.

    • Hi Curtis,

      My partner Dominic orders them…. and I think we do get them off Ebay. They have a pretty good variety of styles to choose from. I think we pay between $200-$350 for ours.

      Thanks for the question and comments!!

    If I could get my husband to leave Delaware I would move back. What a great job you all did on this Old House. Mom and Dad are looking down at it and they would approve. Thank you so much for all your hard work and the hours it took. Mary S. Dover DE

    • Hi Mary,

      Thanks for the compliments

      I’m glad you and your family were able to find our site and see how we transformed your old home!

      It was in a pretty sad state when we got it… but after giving it the Hampden Homebuyers touch, we turned it into a real beauty again.

    Holy moly! That was quite the fixer upper. The after pics look amazing, I especially like the finished look of the kitchen and the reused claw tub. Great job!

    • Hi Kevin,
