I hope you enjoy these weekly updates as I navigate through the business of flipping houses one house at a time!! Check in each Friday to see weekly update of how this house progresses! To catch up on the progress on Nessie, check out her previous posts here. If you’re new here (Hello!!!), or just enjoy walking down memory lane, you can see my 6 previous flip houses here. Thanks for coming along for the ride!! *This post may contain affiliate links*
GUESS WHAT!!! TOILETS!!
They aren’t 100% functional yet, but will be by the end of the day today! The powder room toilet is a new style for me because it needs to pump up to the septic system. BUT this little toilet means that this house has officially gone from a 3 bed/1 bath to a 3 bed/1.5 bath- a big deal for value!
Again it was a challenge getting clear pics yesterday to show you this week’s progress because it was a busy house: the plumber had his stuff everywhere, and I couldn’t walk on half the floor due to a fresh coat of polyurethane. Next week, I’ll be able to show clear pictures without stuff everywhere as the house starts it’s clean-up (!!!!!). In addition to plumbing, lots of electrical happened, as did more baseboards, kitchen toekicks, and my kitchen bench finally went in!!!
I know it doesn’t look it yet, but this bench will be the dining room. I’ll be putting a table right up to it. With no true dining area in this house, I’m creating one with this bench. The staging will make it all clear!! Soon, I promise!
Further in the kitchen, again, yay plumbing and dishwasher! And To Do lists! Each room is now sporting my signature To Do lists and I hope that most will get checked off within the next week.
I know my tile choice isn’t going to resinate with all of you (especially since only 87% of you loved it on instagram stories), but I think it’s exactly the statement this house needs! Bold? you bet. I’ve mentioned before that I don’t like to play it too safe on these flips. I’m literally banking on someone falling hard for this house and generic finishes just don’t inspire that kind of passion.
The only area that’s currently clean, unfortunately, is the living room, entry, and front bedroom so they could get fresh floor finishing. Under the necessary construction clutter, this little house is really starting to shine and I can’t wait to show you!
I’m excited to start the clean-up, finishing, and final decent of this house back to being live-able!
Have an amazing weekend and a merry Christmas!!
