Nessie the Flip House: Week 12

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!!  

More plumbing and electrical and framing happened this week.  Have a great weekend!

Just kidding!  Yes, more plumbing and electrical and framing happened this week, but so did landscaping.  I won't bore you with interior pics this week... "look, more electrical wire than last week!"  Rough inspections should be happening any day now (plumbing, electrical, and insulation so the inspector can approve what we've done before drywall blocks it all).  Once those happen, I can get drywall, floors, paint, tile, etc.  I'm really hoping that the interior stuff flies.  I'd like to actually sell this house some time. 


This week, the outside finally got cleaned up.  Beautiful hydrangea bushes now flank the front door and the dead arbor vitae is gone at last.


The dead areas of grass got new dirt and grass seed and the planting beds got fresh edges, new mulch and some pops of color with mums.



We also finally got a post mailbox installed and maybe they'll finally deliver mail!



No drastic landscape changes, however just cleaning it all up made a huge difference.  Now I'm just waiting for a few things to get repaired on the exterior to schedule painters!  If I can't improve the curb appeal with a porch or portico, the least I can do is paint.  I think I can work it into my budget....  Also on the exterior list is new gutters, house numbers, trim on a few windows, still waiting on a new window on the front, and of course new lights.  At least something is starting to look more polished!


Onword and upward!

Have an amazing weekend!
