Millie: Week 18

I hope you enjoy these weekly updates as I learn to navigate through the business of flipping houses.  This flip, Millie is the most challenging and most exciting yet! You can find more about this house and about my 3 previous flip houses here. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas week.  As promised, just a quickie update for today.  It was a short work week, but a big week for progress.  When last we saw the wall between the new master bedroom and master bath it looked a little like this.


Now, care to join me in a happy dance?  We have walls!


Finally starting to look like 2 separate rooms instead of the wide open area from when I got the house.


Also the first time since owning this house, I can't walk from the kitchen to the new master bed through the closet.  Pardon the blurry pic, apparently it's the best I got as I was on my way out for the holiday.


What's exciting about this is that the kitchen ceiling is also newly drywalled and textured where previously it was cracked and damaged plaster.  The texture was necessary to hide the waves of the 100+ year old ceiling- don't worry, it's not popcorn!  I'll be patching in the beadboard wainscoting, but right now it's showing where the door used to be through to the new master.  No more!

While the pros were doing the drywall (why pros? what took them 2 days would have taken me a month and looked very amateur)... anyway, while the pros were doing their thing, I was doing more patching upstairs and other smaller patches in the house that wasn't worth paying the pros for.  All this dusty work, though means we're almost ready to paint!

That's all the excitement for this week.  Onward to next week and more progress!

Have a great weekend!
