  1. What?
    Looks move in ready to me.

    WOW. So excited for you two. What an adventure. I’m sure with all the know-how and your taste it’ll soon be someones dream home!! Luck and Congrats!!

  2. Amy says:

    Congratulations! I for one can’t wait to see them! Please tell me that you’re going to leave that one built in, that looks like it’s in a hallway, maybe a linen closet? It’s dreamy and you don’t find them anymore! You all must be so excited! I’m excited for all of you! Post tons of pictures please! Good Luck and have tons of fun!

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much, Amy! No worries, we are definitely leaving the built in in the soon to be master bedroom. It’s a keeper! 😀

  3. Congratulations on a great find! I will be anxious to see how you “fix er up”:):)

  4. How exciting Shayna!! I would love to tackle a project like that one day… good luck! I can’t wait to see what you do with it:)

  5. EEEEEKKKK so super excited! Isn’t it crazy exciting to see a space like this with of the possibilities in your head??? We flipped a house when we were first married (bought it three days after the wedding) and it was in similar condition to this one.
    Someday I want to do a game with AJ (“game” being a loose term) where we take a two family that is a total doozy and we each take an apt and redo it and we don’t get a say into the style of the other persons unit unless they ask.

    How exciting. Looking forward to see what you and hubby do.
    I have always wanted to do that with a house and after watching Flip or Flop on HGTV I get even more excited.
    For now I will just watch your adventure and then maybe one day I will make the move.

  9. Glynis Maruk says:

    Good for you! The house looks like it has great potential and in pretty good shape. Give me a shout if you need any help!

  10. Christine King says:

    Oh Shayna…how exciting. I could see great things for the rooms in this house and you are the perfect couple to tackle it! I’m so excited to see pictures of the progress!

  11. Jenna Sue says:

    Awesome, congrats Shayna! Do you plan to just flip & sell it right away, or keep and rent it out?

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much! I’m excited! We are planning on selling it as soon as we are finished! 😀
