Millie: Week 26

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. Progress slows a bit when you're fighting the plague.  But, there has been progress! and it's pretty stuff too.

The kitchen cabinets got fully installed and the countertops got templated.  Countertops are getting installed on Tuesday! Then... TILE!


The biggest visual change this week happened upstairs.  I scrambled to do paint prep (sanding, caulking) so that the painter could do his thing in the 3 upstairs bedrooms and hallway.  Finally, the pink room is no more.




The hideous louvered bifold closet door also got replaced with a vintage door from the ReStore.



And the back hallway:


Well, it's amazing what a little paint can do.  Clearly a little more paint is still needed for that YELLOW window frame.


In addition to all this, the former master is looking pretty snazzy once again.


In the midst of all this, I kept myself busy with snow clearing, random patching, caulking, cleaning, more snow clearing, and general stuff that needs to get done but isn't so pretty.

Next week's operative: finish the walls in the new master so we can get fixtures installed and subsequently working plumbing.  Fingers crossed!!
