Shorty the Flip House: Week 8

I hope you enjoy these weekly updates as I navigate through the business of flipping houses one house at a time!!  Come back every Friday to see how this house, aka Shorty, progresses from week to week.  To catch up on the progress on Shorty, check out his previous posts here.  If you’re new here, (Hello!!!) you can find more about my 5 previous flip houses here.  Thanks for coming along for the ride!!  

I'll start out today by saying that this week wasn't quite the progress leaps and bounds I was hoping for, but still some very important progress was made.  Most notable change?  Half of the house is all drywalled and patched!


In the areas that they haven't patched just yet, they did remove any of the loose/damaged plaster.

While this doesn't look like a huge step in the house, it totally is- drywalling means that painting is coming VERY soon!!  Once we can pull out the paint brushes, things are going to start to look pretty polished pretty quickly.


I was really hoping to see the kitchen tile go down this week, but due to scheduling conflicts (my contractor's tile guy was in the midst of tiling 2 bathrooms) I won't get to see tile on the floor until early next week.  BUT that doesn't mean that no kitchen progress happened!  If you caught my insta-story yesterday, you know cabinets got delivered!!!


Additionally, I ordered light fixtures for about 90% of the house.  They've already started delivering them and I'm excited to see them installed!!  After paint!

Slated for next week is kitchen floor tile, more plastering, and picking paint colors!!!


Have a fantastic weekend!!!
