Stephen & Lena JonesThis month’s Onsite Renovation Group meeting will be held at Stephen & Lena Jones’s newly newly renovated home located at 2320 Shasta Way NE, Atlanta, GA. Here is a little bit of information about the project that Stephen sent us…

Onsite Property“2320 Shasta Way is located in a quiet neighborhood in a section of unincorporated Dekalb running parallel to I-85 and Briarcliff Road near Lakeside High School. Like many houses in the neighborhood, the property is a ranch-style, four-sided brick home on a full basement, with a large, flat lot. The owners of the house kept the houses up very well, but had never updated it in any meaningful way, and sold it because they lived too far away to manage it as a rental. In June we purchased the house for $285,000 and it had three bedrooms, two baths plus a full bath in the basement.

We recognized from day one that the house was going to be very challenging due to the basement stairway being located between the den, living room and kitchen; and furthermore, the house footprint was very small, at around 1600 square feet. Lena and I realized that we would have to choose between having three bedrooms on the main level or having a large master suite. We also had to decide whether it was worth the money moving the stairway. To achieve an ARV over $550k we would need to make sure the house had four bedrooms, three baths.

Lena and I decided to keep the stairway where it was, but continue to open up the layout by spanning the main structural wall over the stairway and adjusting the kitchen to work around the obstruction. Knowing that a large portion of the buyer pool in the area consists of empty-nesters, and further that the house was a walk-in ranch, we decided to sacrifice a bedroom upstairs in order to deliver a large master bathroom and walk-in-closet. We framed in two bedrooms in the basement and replaced all systems and mechanicals in addition to 90% of the drywall in the house. Lastly, the 28-foot long carport was easy to convert into a garage with enough space left over for a large storage closet and mudroom. The house is currently under contract for $632,000 though we built the deal around a planned ARV of $550,000. The renovation, which was self-managed, cost $145,000.”
