Grover: Week 10

I hope you enjoy these weekly updates as I learn to navigate through the business of flipping houses.  Check out  more about this flip, Grover, or check out posts about our last flip HERE. Exciting things are happening!!!! Next week!!!  Windows are getting installed, hard wood flooring is getting started, the bathroom floor will get grouted, and maybe even the bathroom wall paneling will go up!

This week, however is not as exciting as next week will be (am I becoming a broken record?.... will kids even know what that phrase means?....).  This week was a bit of a change for me since I wasn't staring at white trim for days.  Instead I finished painting the walls and closets in the 2 last bedrooms,




scraped, patched, sanded, & primed the bathroom ceiling, patched & partially edged the bathroom walls (where it will even show above the paneling),


got a new door/old door from the ReStore for right around $10 for the bathroom closet- I just have to fit the hinges and paint.


patched random stuff in the kitchen, had a ton of boxes delivered that will eventually turn into a kitchen,


and started to devise my plot to tame the jungle outside.


Part 1 of my jungle-taming plan: get rid of the garden-full of poison ivy- it makes me itch just looking at it.


The exciting thing about my interior progress, though, is that once I have the bathroom set, that entire half of the house will be DONE of my part and just waiting for the pros to refinish the floors!

Across town, however, Frankie is still hanging out on the market.  Although we've been getting positive reviews about the renos, I probably should have been a bit more choosy about the area.  Live and learn!

Have a great holiday weekend!!
