It was whirlwind 12 days from first setting eyes on Snowberry to the close of escrow.
Then things slowed down.
The sellers negotiated a 60-day rent back period. Read about our purchase of Snowberry here.
We made good use of the time and got to work with our architect reimagining the floor plan.
Snowberry is a 2500 sqft, 3 bedroom, 2 bath house. Built in 1951, it has been through at least two prior additions / renovations.

Guest Rooms & Bath
Our renovation wish list included the addition of a powder room and expansion of the master bathroom and closet.
For many reasons, mostly around a significantly more challenging (read long and costly) permit approval process, both these ideas were abandoned. At the end of the day, we decided to work within Snowberry’s existing footprint.

With our architectural plans complete and building permit in hand the Snowberry Renovation is ready to roll.
Up next … Demo Day!
