The hubby and I stopped by the flip in Monday night to check out the progress after the first day – I must say, I was VERY pleasantly surprised!!! Tons of demo had been done, and the crew had completely cleaned up after themselves so the place didn’t look like a total train wreck.
Take a look at the transformation in the kitchen:
All of the cabinets are out, the furrdowns are gone (those little boxed in areas above the cabinets), and they’re ready to demo the wall between the kitchen and the den – yay!!! There will soon be just a half wall separating the kitchen and den, with a peninsula that holds the range and a raised bar for bar-height stools on the den side – it’s going to look fab!
They made tons of progress in other places, but the pictures really just look like empty rooms with studs for walls – not too exciting, so I’ll spare you. However, I do have to show you my favorite find:
It always cracks me up during renovations when toilets are left in crazy places – in this case, it’s the master bedroom. It reminds me of the “toilet in kitchen” era of our own home remodel:
Ah, those were the days – and we got lucky with two toilets in our kitchen. I know it’s hard, but try to control your jealousy.
I know some of you were curious as to whether we are using the same contractor for the flip that renovated our home – nope! It’s nothing personal at all with our old contractor (we really really liked him and his work), we just needed a bid that was lower than what he could give us. Luckily, the contractor with the best bid for the flip is actually a guy that we were really in love with when we were getting bids for our house – he has renovated some homes that are truly to die for. I can’t wait to see him work his magic on our flip!!
That’s all for today, folks! Stay tuned as this whole flipping shenanigan unfolds . . .
