Nessie the Flip House: Week 18

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!!  

Exciting things are still happening at Nessie and it's making me one happy flipper.  This week, much more interior painting happened.  All that's left is lots of touchups and maybe one more coat in a bedroom.

Exterior lights went up, so now I just need to get the house numbers up and she's just about ready for her exterior pics.  The second gutters are up (hopefully next week) I plan on taking pics just in case Mother Nature decides to snow before we list in just a few weeks.  A few weeks!  eek!  I'm crossing my fingers that everything can happen in time otherwise we're pushed until after Christmas.



The basement "bowling alley" got a new floor mostly.  Thanks to a few boxes being damaged when we opened them, we're awaiting replacement boxes to finish the job.  Because it's a basement, I chose to do vinyl planks.  Wood cannot go directly on concrete, but I still wanted the warmth.  I'm debating on the best way to stage this area already.  I'm definitely putting a couch and seating area by the nooks where a tv can go, but that still leaves half the room.  I've been thinking to potentially stage some workout gear- an elliptical, yoga mat, etc.  Either that or a kid zone.  I'd love you to weigh in!



Back upstairs, the kitchen floor is stained with 2 coats of poly.... there was a bit of a hiccup on my flooring guy's end, so the wood floors are taking a little bit longer than anticipated though.  Luckily he was still able to get the kitchen set so we can install cabinets today!!!!



I'm so excited to see this kitchen go in!!!  I hope they aren't cursing me too much yet- I always have some weird custom element that is atypical...  this time its a weird crown molding and a bench on the peninsula.  I know they'll make it work- they always do!



Kitchen install is always a total turning point for flips.  That means that we can get countertops templated, appliances delivered, and all the rest of the pieces can start falling into place. I'm so excited!!  Interior Doors also got delivered today and the bathroom linen closet is getting the cutest little door there ever was.



Over the weekend, Handy Dad and I are planning to be installing the laundry/powder room tile that I gave you a glimpse of on instagram.  I'm hoping that the wonky concrete floor won't be too challenging for the install.  Cross your fingers for us!  Either way, I'm hoping that between today and this weekend, Nessie will be an even prettier lady.  I'm so antsy to see this house come to fruition!


Have a stellar weekend and I can't wait to share next weeks progress with you!!!
