Nessie the Flip House: Week 9

September 29, 2017 | Flipping, nessie the fliphouse

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!!


I feel like this house is a tortoise right now- slow and steady.  Steady progress is a good thing, so I can’t complain too much.  This week, central air and all the ductwork was installed.



My electrician also got busy placing recessed lighting, locating outlets, switches, and working on rewiring essentially everything.



The most visible change, however is the framed out basement laundry/powder room!!  It’s feeling like a room!  The pocket door still needs to be framed in, but it’s pretty exciting to see this space.



At this phase, I’m racking my brain to make sure that I take every necessary item into consideration while the walls are open and things are still easy to tweak.  I’m eager for finishes, but there’s lots of ‘necessary evil’ to take care of first behind the walls.


After a longer wait that I would like, I’ve been assured that the patio and exterior hardscaping repairs will be starting by Wednesday at the latest.


And on we chug, chug, along.


Happy autumn and have a great weekend!

  1. I love following your flips! They are always so beautiful and it’s nice to watch the progress unfold. I have a crazy idea! Not sure how you are planning on laying out the laundry room, but would you consider an opening along the stair wall to let in some of that beautiful light? Also, if the new owner is lazy like me, they could just toss the odd item right into the room from the stairs. Crazy?
    Thanks for all the posts! I look forward to them every Friday!

  2. Hmm just looked back at some posts. Forgot this will be a laundry/bath combo. So, referring to my earlier comment, maybe no opening on the stair wall…

  3. You need to remember that when you gut as much as you have on this one progress tends to be slower then mostly finish projects. Looks to me like you’re making reasonable timing still. 🙂 Permitting delays have not helped either.
