‘Bargain Mansions’: Tamara Day delivers zen strength to her home renovation with shou sugi ban strategy

Time 4 of HGTV’s hit renovation present ‘Bargain Mansions’ is back with a 2nd episode and host Tamara Working day and dad Ward Schraeder are completely ready for one more problem. The father-daughter renovators hit the street to arrive at a 1984 contemporary property with 3,600 square ft that Tamara bought for $220,000. 

The residence was centrally positioned in Kansas Town wherever the host is based mostly out of. One of the highlights of the home in accordance to Tamara was the zen garden. “You can vibe definitely very good in this article,” she described to her father as Ward sits in a meditative situation. She explained to her dad she wished to renovate the property with Asian components that she enjoys and give the home a “burnt cedar wood” complete or the “shou sugi ban” outcome. 

For Phase 1 of the renovation, Tamara desired to commit not extra than  $45,000 to renovate the sitting down place, kitchen, living home and the outdoors. For the sitting home, she wanted to make an open storage cupboard with a nook in the center of it which would be a good place to sit and read as it overlooks a fantastic view. The area would be current with contemporary lights and a eating place. For the kitchen area location, Tamara made a decision to get rid of the hardwood countertops of the kitchen islands and convey it to the exact same degree and exchange it with soft white tiles. She painted the partitions sage green to match the eco-friendly cabinets, taken out the wall cupboards that had been also massive and built the put search cluttered and replaced it with open floating cupboards. 

With 8 weeks in hand, Tamara and her workforce start out working on the zen back garden. She arranged a tailor made made water fountain for the back garden created of flex stones, she bought the outside of the house painted in darkish brass undertones. With an already existent Buddha statue and a wood seat and shed for meditation, the outdoors of the house was prepared. Tamara preferred to have elements of shou sugi ban on the outdoors and in the entryway to marry the exterior to the inside of in a way that presents off the Asian aesthetic all over the dwelling.

Inside of the dwelling area, Tamara redid the fireplace and embellished it with white colour themed home furniture with dazzling detailing and modern-day lighting to brighten up the area. The outside the house turned out the way she had anticipated.
