Cole the Flip House: Week 5

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!  

Cole was a busy place last weekend, but then was relatively quiet all week.  Even with it being largely a quiet week, significant progress was made!  It's just not the prettiest progress, but it's what will make this house function flawlessly!



To orient you, the pic above is taken from the living room, dining room is the open room on the left, kitchen is right behind the stairs and the full bath is a bump-out off the middle of the back of the house- you can see the bathroom built-in and the new tub glaring white in the distance there.


Even though the new furnace hasn't been installed yet, all of the new ductwork has been run.  The house has been completely rewired and new plumbing has been run for the kitchen, existing bathroom, and the NEW upstairs powder room!  This is the same wall/chase that I showed you last week, but now it has hvac, plumbing, electrical, and a bit more framing to it.  It's no longer a pass-through to the kitchen, but as you can see from the panorama above, a doorway there is no longer needed!



The new upstairs powder room is starting to look like more than just a closet!  It's not going to be super spacious, but in my opinion, it's presence on the second floor is such a bonus for this house!  This view is going to be non-existent once drywall is up, but this was taken from the top of the stairs where there will be a small linen closet through the vanity wall of the powder room.  On the floor in the back you can see the toilet flange and water line.



In giving up the existing master closet for the new powder room, we had to do something about closets.  Do you think this is a big enough closet for this room?  That's a trick question.  The answer is YES!  It's gigantic for the size and age of the house!  My own closet is jealous.



I'm getting eager to see drywall go up, but I know there are several other things that need completing first.  The big one being rough inspections by the town.  On top of that, all new doors will be going in before drywall can happen.  The house is already leaps and bounds beyond where it started, though, don't you think?


Have a fantastic weekend!!
