It may be Saturday, but when you’re flipping houses that doesn’t really mean much. :) We have a meeting with the floor guy (we’ve met with all the other trades, and then some, over the last few weeks) and he’s the last bid that we need to get before demo starts on Monday.
That’s right, I said Monday! We like to hit the ground running over here – time is money, people! :) After Monday rolls around, the flip will look something like this:
Before the wrecking balls demo guys move in, we’re going to run around today and tomorrow to salvage the few things that we’d like to stay.
First to be saved – the knobs and pulls on the kitchen cabinets.
They were recent additions to the kitchens, they look great (I’m 99% sure they’re actually this and this) and they match the design scheme we’re going for. The plan is to use them in the secondary bathrooms and on the desk in the 4th bedroom.
Second to be saved – this chandelier in the breakfast room:
I regretted not rescuing a similar one from the last flip, so I decided not to make that mistake again! Someday, it will find a place in my own home.
Third to be saved – another chandelier, this time from the formal dining room:
Sorry I don’t have a closer picture. It’s one of those vintage, ornate gold chandeliers with crystals – not everyone’s cup of tea, but I think it could be great in the right space (not at the flip, but maybe in my house someday?). We had two of them at our house that I didn’t save, and I thought this one should be allowed to live on.
Other than that, we’re planning to spend the weekend taking more measurements and making final decisions about the floor plan (with lots of football-watching thrown in, of course) – there will definitely be some big changes to the floor plan, so get excited!! Have a wonderful weekend, see you Monday!
