Nessie the Flip House: Week 11

I hope you enjoy these weekly updates as I navigate through the business of flipping houses one house at a time!!  Check in each Friday to see weekly update of how this house progresses!  To catch up on the progress on Nessie, check out her previous posts here.  If you’re new here (Hello!!!),  or just enjoy walking down memory lane, you can see my 6 previous flip houses here.  Thanks for coming along for the ride!!  

I'm finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel!  While it may not look drastically different today than it did last week, it is leaps closer to drywall.  Plumbing and electrical are just steps away from their rough inspections.





The drywaller is available the last week of the month, so I'm setting that deadline and making sure that everyone else does their homework before then.  Once the drywaller is set, we can get to flooring and even painting, and THEN this house will look like something once again!





Framing is almost set.



The most visible change this week was actually outside, though.  We have a new patio and retaining wall!



Additionally, the brick on the front retaining wall was also repaired.  Now that the masonry is done, landscaping can start on Monday!



Even though I still have a lot of decisions to make for the house, I already have my sights set on staging.  I know I'll need to buy a few new pieces, but I'm thinking about repurposing a few of my existing staging pieces to really shine in this house.  I also have a few DIY ideas that could really be standout.  Now I just need to find time to do all the projects I want to!  Let me tell you- with a 6 month old, a full schedule of design clients, and project managing/designing this flip I'm pooped!  It's all good things, I just wish there were a few more hours each day! (I'm sure every working mom everywhere has thought this same thing)


In the words of Rihanna, cheers to the freakin weekend!
