Dori the Flip House: week 8

I hope you enjoy these weekly updates as I learn to navigate through the business of flipping houses.  My latest flip house, Dori sports the 3 L’s in real estate, but will need more than a bit of creativity to make the house sellable. You can find more about this house and about my 4 previous flip houses here. I feel like a broken record here: this week, while stuff happened, it's not very drastic, BUT next week will be spectacular!!!

This week:

all the new drywall got taped, mudded, and sanded.  She's all ready for paint!!



Outside got sexified with a new patio


only a few notches better than the old patio..... I had honestly blocked from my mind how horrific it was


and lots of grass got planted


AND is already starting to grow!


My main job this week was to make sure to keep the grass seed damp and to stay out of the way of the drywallers.  Gave me a good opportunity to focus on some design clients and get started on wedding planning for my sister in law!

Like I mentioned already, next week will be BIG.  You'll start seeing trim, paint, tile, and all the things that will start to make this look like a livable house once again.  I hope you're as excited as I am!!

Happy Weekend!
