Cole the Flip House: Week 3

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 been a difficult week to find focus.  We still are without a usable office thanks to the fallen ceiling and working to get it at the very least cleaned up..... but luckily, things are chug chugging steadily along on the flip.


The most fun visual progress was the chopping down of the gigantic bushes in the yard and you can now SEE the house!!!  I cannot express to you how truly massive the bushes were!



The unfortunate result of this, however is now half the yard is covered in chopped down brush, so I need to find someone to haul it away and grind some stumps for me.



Inside, a bit more demo got buttoned up including the doorways for the new jack & jill powder room upstairs.



The wall that will separate the landing at the top of the stairs and powder room is temporarily down, but this will be the powder room!  It may not look like much at the moment, but the new owners will thank me when they don't have to go downstairs and across the house when they wake up in the middle of the night.



I always love discovering things in houses- the older the better!  This time, once the future bathroom walls got demo'ed and you could see the back of old wallboard, this tag was visible.  Very specific directions for how to install the product.  "Be Sure to Place this Side Against Studs and Joists"



Next week promises to see lots of mechanical progress.  HVAC, plumbing, and electrical should all start going in!


Have a fantastic weekend!!
