Fresh Rafterhouse

Fresh Rafterhouse

I’ve got a treat for your eyeballs today!  It’s the latest Rafterhouse remodel, and it’s a beauty!  If you recall, Rafterhouse is a local company here in Arizona that specializes in flipping homes, and they do it with the utmost style. No builder beige walls and standard kitchen-in-a-box cabinets here, no sir.  They are beyond move-in ready; they’re a one-way ticket to Dreamyville.

It’s my goal to own a Rafterhouse someday, or at least kidnap Austin and his crew and hold them hostage at my house until they make it Rafterhouse-worthy. Either way works. I’m not picky.

You can see the previous homes I’ve featured from Rafterhouse here and here.

Today I’m sharing their ‘Glenrosa’ project.  And wow, wait til you see the before of the outside!  I’ve saved it for the last picture.  Not that I doubted them … but I was pretty sure it would be the undoing of Rafterhouse.  Impossible.  Irredeemable.  A insurmountable pink-stuccoed pile of ugly. But (spoiler alert) they knocked it out of the park.  Behold:

Adios to that awkward bay window and hello new windows, gorgeous floors and neutral walls. Looking good!

How about this powder room?

Oh yeah.  That’s an improvement.  I love the whitewashed plank walls!

Let’s take a peek into the kitchen:

I swear, same kitchen.  I know.  I KNOW!  I’ve done the scroll-up scroll-down thing too, and I still can’t believe it.  I think the only thing that remained the same is the sink location. Can you see the vintage pantry door?  That’s a signature Rafterhouse look!


One more bathroom …

… not even distantly related to the before.  Fantastic.


And finally, here’s a glimpse of the exterior.  Prepare to have your mind blown!

Jaw dropping. I’m sure the new owners are super happy, and the neighbors are probably dancing-in-the-streets-tears-of-joy-streaming-down-their-faces happy.

    Living in Glendale, I’m also a HUGE fan of Rafterhouse.. If you ever decide to let them go after you kidnap them, send them my way. Thanks for sharing!

    That is spectacular! I’d love to know how they’re doing vs the rest of the real estate market in their area.

    Also — a totally blah box house in my neighborhood did a similar outside reno, and it turned out amazing! The family (young and cute!) were outside playing in the front yard one day, and I screeched to a halt, rolled down my window, and shouted at them about how in love i was with their house! 🙂 Here’s how it used to look. Will have to find an updated picture for you. You’d love it.

    OH MY GOSH. I think I am going to have to spend 10 minutes every orning staring at their website. It will make me get my butt in gear to start in on my huge list or renovation plans.

    Holy moly that’s gorgeous! What an amazing transformation. I totally need to check out more of their work!

    Holy cow!! That’s amazing! If I had seen this about a month ago, I would have copied their fabulous pantry door!!! I am in love with it! I wouldn’t have thought a vintage door would look good with a very sleek and modern kitchen, but it does!

    I hope you do own a Rafterhouse someday because that would mean you’d live within a few miles of me. 🙂 I actually went to the open house for the Glenrosa house and it’s even more impressive now that I’m seeing the “Before” photos. I’m actually on my way to another Rafterhouse open house right now.
