Cole the Flip House: Week 2

I hope you enjoy these weekly updates as I navigate through the business of flipping houses one house at a time!!  If you’re new here (Hello!!!) or just enjoy walking down memory lane, you can see my 7 previous flip houses here.  Thanks for coming along for the ride as I jump into flip #8!!!  Check out previous posts about this house here and follow along on my insta-stories for more behind the scenes goodness!  

It's Monday.  This post was supposed to be Friday.  I have no excuse except life.  I've been a bit off my game for the past few days.  Starting with discovering Thursday morning that a large chunk of my office ceiling had fallen overnight and we currently can't use the office until we get it cleaned up/fixed.  Friday I learn that my elderly office landlord passed away earlier in the week (putting the ceiling cleanup in an indefinite limbo) and I had to pick a sick baby up from daycare (just a cold which was making him wheezy, but he promptly shared his cold with me).  On Sunday, my head was finally out of it's cold fog, and I realized that I still haven't given you an update of this week's flip progress!


So for the flip!!

The job site was relatively quite this past week.  I was able to get both cabinets and appliances ordered on Massachusetts tax free weekend, so that's a bit of a cost savings (yay!).  With cabinets that needed to get ordered, I'm starting to devise a plan for this kitchen.  As far as any actual work done, a bit happened.  Outside, a few bushes got trimmed before the yellow jackets got very angry.



And inside, temporary walls went up while my contractor got the structural beam up between the kitchen and dining room.



Now, no wall!  There will ultimately be a peninsula in that spot, but the openness will remain!



I'm hoping the non-pretty, expensive-but-very-necessary things like electrical and hvac get started this week!  I'll let you know Friday!


Have a great week!!
