Hey. How's it going?

Did you have a good day yesterday?
Me? Yeah.
What did you do?
Oh. Me? Oh just normal stuff... Got the kids off to school, did a little grocery shopping, bought a house, made spaghetti for dinner.

Wait! What??? Bought a house?!

Yep. :) We bought a new house yesterday! Well it's not really new, but new to us. And it's not to live in but to flip. We flipped a house last year and really loved it. And the opportunity presented itself again recently so we closed on the house yesterday. I know in most of the country the housing market is way down right now but it hasn't really hit where we are so I think we'll be able to fix it up and sell it for a profit for no problem at all.

I don't have any "before" pictures yet but I'll get some soon. Until then, here are a few pictures of our last flip. I had them all nicely organized but Practiceboard deleted them. Dang.

Shower before and after.



Stairs before and after.



Kitchen before and after.



Laundry room before and after.



The house we bought yesterday is right next door to the first one so the interior is pretty similar. The goal is to have it on the market by late Spring. We'll see! Wheeee!!!

You're before and afters are amazing. My husband's fantasy job is flipping houses. To me I can't think of a more nerve wracking thing to do.

What an improvement! Have fun with making the new house just as pretty! :D

Oooh how fun! That's something I've always wanted to do but the housing market in this area is not good. We've had houses sit for almost a year and now many are for rent.

The before and afters are amazing. Do you guys do your own work? Good luck with this!
