    Looks great!!! Unfortunately (for me) you’ll probably sell it before I ever have a chance to make it down to see it.

    Should go quick. Thanks for the shout-out, it was a real pleasure to shoot such a home, especially after following the progress on the blog. I was struck by the high quality all over.

    Thanks Bilge! This one was fun, we really wanted to move in.

    Great work and I really appreciate the great pictures.

    I especially like the clean look of the kitchen. Can you tell me, what is the wood and finish on the upper cabinets of the kitchen? Thanks

  12. By Tom on Feb 4, 2013 | Reply

    @Lou, Thanks! The kitchen uppers are “Rift Cut” Red Oak, grain matched. The same material as the floors. We stained them with Golden Pecan, same color as floor too.

    Great work!

    I like the natural upper cabinets and blueish gray lowers. Great way to break up the floors and cabinets.

  14. By Tom on Feb 5, 2013 | Reply

    Thanks Hunter. Its always fun to try new materials and finishes, for the past 3-4 Years we were stuck in a “white shaker cabinet with dark granite rut.” You’ll see more and more projects from designers using painted base cabinets and stained uppers now, I think its the new thing. A few years ago we started seeing the island color only changing from the base cabinets but this takes it a little farther. I think it looks clean and contemporary without the feminine look of white cabinets. Glad you enjoyed it.

    Where is your next project going to be? I’m dying to know!

    I have a big redo coming up in North Park, close by. I’ll give more info as soon as I can. Thanks for following us Meagan.

    Amazing work! I love following your projects from start to finish, I’m always amazed by the end-results, and after 4 years of following, I can safely say I’ve never been disappointed. Keep it up, Tom!

    That’s so rad Jared, you are probably one of the oldest blog followers! I think you originally found me from some old YouTube flipping videos on my YouTube channel. Thanks for the compliments.

    Beautiful home Tom.

    I am hoping to visit this weekend but haven’t confirmed plans to drive down from Orange county.

    The pictures are awesome.

  20. By Tom on Feb 8, 2013 | Reply

    Thanks David, Hope all is well. We are holding it open rain or shine, both days. Might be getting rain Saturday but Sunday should be good I hope.

    Fabulous work Tom! We stopped by your open house today and were so impressed with the design, quality and craftsmanship. I think you are offering a great product for a good value and its a nice fit for our neighborhood. Should sell fast! I just wanted to give you a formal compliment and thanks for showing us around.

  22. By Tom on Feb 10, 2013 | Reply

    Thank you so much Anna! It was a great turn out, we had over 100 people through yesterday as well as 8 Realtor showings. I am holding it open again today Sunday from 12-5. Most of the neighbors have been coming back multiple times bringing friends, I’m glad I am getting so much support from the neighborhood! Tell anyone you know who is looking to buy a home in the South Park/North Park area.

    Hey David Overfield, Nice to see you guys again and glad you could make it down. Nice chatting and lets keep in touch.

  24. By David on Feb 11, 2013 | Reply


    Good talking with you too.

    This house has a real unique blend of traditional craftsman exterior but modern interior.

    Someone will get a very cool home.

    BTW. The waterfall edge on the kitchen island was a good choice. It is the first time I’ve seen one in person and it makes a strong visual impact on entry into the home.

    Can’t wait to see the next one.

    Tom, it was nice to meet you yesterday at the open house and see your amazing craftsmanship in person. Keep up the great work!

  26. By Tom on Feb 11, 2013 | Reply

    Thanks for coming to see it Doug and saying hello!

  27. By tj & the bear on Feb 13, 2013 | Reply

    Gotta be at least a dozen offers in by now. 🙂

  28. By Tom on Feb 13, 2013 | Reply

    It’s in escrow TJ. After the open I house I had 3 great offers on the table. After a little back and forth it easily landed in escrow. Evidently its the talk of the area agents, Still getting calls just to talk about the house and for back up showings.
    I could have sold it 2 more times for sure; ) Love this house, will be sorry to see it go but I can always drive by I guess.

  29. By Jakob on Feb 13, 2013 | Reply

    Wow! Awesome. There is obviously a strong demand for high-end product in more central, urban locations. And very little out there to meet that demand.

    Any kind of profile of the most interested buyers emerge after the showings? Mostly younger, or all over?


  30. By Tom on Feb 14, 2013 | Reply

    Thanks Jacob. Buyer profile mostly consistent with our guess, artsy, downtowners, alternative, non-burbs buyers. Fairly young, educated and white collar. All 3 offers from great buyers who really appreciated the unique design. All buyers had been looking in North Park, South Park, Hillcrest and Mission Hills exclusively. Great question.

    No surprise whatsoever. Congratulations yet again, Tom!

    House turned out amazing. Sad to see that JTR lost the listing, but if I were you I’d get licensed up too. Great way to save $15-30k!

  33. By Jaden on Feb 14, 2013 | Reply

    Gorgeous! I’ve been following since you broke ground. Stunning! Great job! Glad to see the different finishes, tired of seeing the standard “flipper” finishes.

  34. By Tom on Feb 15, 2013 | Reply

    Thanks Wes, JTR rocks but it I’ve been licensed since the early 90’s in 2 states, just wasn’t active in CA since we got back from TX. We have the contracts wired since we are in the business, but now I can list my own stuff, write my own offers and also get into new listings quickly without calling an agent. There’s also the occasional double ended sale where we might get lucky and find our own buyer. If you give your listing away, even at a discount, you forgo that opportunity. Thanks for following!

    Thanks Jaden!!, yea we got a lot of good comments on our material choices and colors, so fun to do a different look. Not feminine at all, looks masculine but clean. Trying to stay ahead of the pack with finishes (and its not hard) ; )

  36. By Jay the Realtor Wannabe on Feb 15, 2013 | Reply

    Looks amazing! Pretty cool how the digital rendering of the house was so close to the real life result.

    Don’t blame you for getting your own Realtor’s licence…been meaning to get one myself when I get the time.

    So the BIG question is…what’s next? Do you have another project in the pipeline? The supply of houses for sale, fixers or otherwise, has almost completely dried up!

  37. By Tom on Feb 16, 2013 | Reply

    Thanks Jay..ya amazing looking at the 3d modeling image and then at the actual house, yes we think we have the next big project but not confirmed yet. Ya never know how things will work out so I have to be chasing multiple leads to get one to pop. As soon as (and if) I open escrow I’ll show everyone. Yea, with the low inventory and absence of foreclosures, the cosmetic flippers are going to be looking for a new line of work this year.

    Thanks Kevin, this house sold the first weekend and has been in escrow, it should close this week and I’ll do a wrap up story. Thanks for being a long time follower!

    Just caught the video — great!

    sneaky bear guy…you’ve been over on my YouTube Channel, huh? if sale closes today, going to post a recap. Always fun to watch the videos of the whole house start to finish. So motivating. Thanks for sneaking by!

    Great work on this project. I love the natural light and the huge windows throughout the home, especially the corner windows over the bathtub. It is not hard to believe that the house sold after the first weekend. I am surprised riots didn’t break out to determine the winning buyer. As I mentioned in a previous comment, the exterior paint colors are not ones you would typically think of when selecting colors, but they work together in a fantastic way. I think overall, though, the continuity of the flooring throughout the project makes it unique and wonderfully modern.

    Hey Tom,
    Any updates on the new project? Who did your cabinets? I’m in love with the lower cabinets. Thanks!

  47. By Tom on May 24, 2013 | Reply

    Hey Jaden,

    Call Jed at Holland Custom Kitchens in El Cajon. 619 443-6081. They are one of the oldest and best cabinet shops in San Diego and can make anything custom. The next project we have is another new construction house on Carlsbad Lagoon, we closed on the parcel this week. It will be a long road with permit approval before we break ground though so you’ll probably see a rehab here on the site next while we work on the Carlsbad plans.
