Open Concept Kitchen in Kendall

After photo of open kitchen floor plan

This open concept kitchen design was part of a complete interior remodel we recently completed in Miami’s Kendall neighborhood. Many of the homes in this area were built with an open atrium in the center, which subtracted over 100 sq ft of living space from the home.

The homeowners wanted to seal the atrium as part of their new open floor plan. The new layout called for removing the existing ceramic tile floors and replacing them with an Italian porcelain plank tile. Dividing walls between the kitchen, dining & living room were also removed, creating a grand open space. One side of the atrium was converted into an island with cabinets, a wine cooler and a wine rack extending from the kitchen. All cabinets are made of solid wood with a white quartz countertop from Caesarstone.

REO Repairs in Broward County

A before & after look at REO repairs on this bank owned property (a.k.a. REO/Real Estate Owned) in Broward County. The majority of the budget on this R.E.O. repair project consisted of replacing/upgrading all windows to impact windows and roof replacement with substantial rotted decking & truss replacement. The remainder of the budget was used on interior for carpet replacement, door replacement & interior paint. The main goal for the property owners was to stay within budget and get the property back on the market for re-sale.

 

Extensive Wallpaper Removal & Interior Paint

This was another large REO rehabilitation project handled by Rausa Builders Corp. The property was in decent condition, but was dated with floral wallpaper in all bathrooms and a different color scheme in each area of the home. The asset was located in Deering Bay, an exclusive luxury community on the southern tip of Coral Gables. The goal was to refresh the asset so the owners can put it back on the market for re-sale and get the largest possible return on their investment.

The home was just over 6,000 sq ft in size, with 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. Each room was painted a different color, with bold colors in the master bedroom, kitchen & dining. All 6 bathrooms had floral wallpaper from floor to ceiling, which required temporary toilet and vanity relocation for proper removal.

Painting of the high ceilings and crown molding required scaffolding to be installed.

Below are before & after photos of this REO rehabilitation:

REO Rehabilitation in Southwest Ranches

Real-Estate-Owned (a.k.a. REO) properties and investment properties are often acquired after months and sometimes years of neglect, requiring proper REO rehabilitation to get the asset back on the market. REO luxury homes are no exception.

This REO rehabilitation project of a 10,000 sq ft home in Southwest Ranches required carpentry work for missing crown moldings, complete interior paint, installation of new light fixtures, pressure washing the roof and repairing then painting the driveway. Rausa Builders Corp’s goal was to refresh the property and give the new homeowners a blank canvas without breaking the REO budget.

Scaffolding was brought in to install crown molding, light fixtures and paint the ceilings which were over 20 ft. high in common areas and 12-15 ft. high in the bedrooms.

For the exterior, pressure washing the large roof, painting the driveway and garage floors gave the asset a more inviting feel.

Interior & Exterior Remodel

Formed Concrete Driveway

Rausa Builders Corp completed this complete Interior & Exterior Remodel in Southwest Miami. The exterior remodeling included a Formed Concrete Driveway with Interlaced Grass, Travertine Pool Deck, Ledge Stone Columns and some Landscaping.

Inside, Filled & Honed Travertine Tile was installed throughout all Floors and Bathroom Walls giving the home a unified feel. The new floor plan called for an Open Kitchen Design which required removal of previous interior walls enclosing the kitchen. The Master, In-Law and Guest Bathrooms were completely redone with Cultured Marble Vanity Tops, Glass Shower Doors and Travertine Tile on Shower Walls. Bedrooms were fitted with individual Vanity Sinks and Jack & Jill Bathrooms with Tubs and Toilets.
