Dori the Flip House: week 12

September 18, 2015 | Dori the fliphouse, Flipping

I hope you enjoy these weekly updates as I learn to navigate through the business of flipping houses.  My latest flip house, Dori sports the 3 L’s in real estate, but will need more than a bit of creativity to make the house sellable. You can find more about this house and about my 4 previous flip houses here.

Have you entered my giveaway yet?  I’ll pause for a moment while you go do that.

Welcome back!  On to this week’s update.

I’d be lying if I said this week was exciting in the least.  By the end of next week, however, everything should be just about set with the exception of a bit of painting, staging accessories, and final touches.  Only a few things happened this week

This week, the engineered wood floors in the living room and hallway are starting to get installed and hopefully will be all set by the end of today.  I’m using my go-to flooring guy once again.  After installing the wood floor at Clark myself, I know how to install them, but I also know that I move at a snails pace and I have to list this house sometime!  That’s where pros come in.

Meanwhile outside, the garage got new siding on the back and a brand spankin new door that isn’t all busted up.

As per my usual as of late, I’ve been painting.  And as per usual on these houses, I feel like the painting will never end.  I did finally settle on a toned down front door color (which compliments my custom shutters perfectly) and gave the old gal a modern spin on house numbers.  They may be my current favorite thing on this house and they’re making me really want a silhouette machine so I can make stuff like this myself.

Aside from finishing up this flip in the next week or so (!!) I have several other fun things up my sleeve in the next few weeks!  Stay tuned!

Happy weekend!!

  1. Wow, that door color came out really nice. It looks similar to the ever poplar BM Palladium Blue! Nice hint of grey in it! Also, the silhouette door number looks so French, nice touch!
