    Love the progress so far! And the tiles look gorgeous! Can’t wait to see the big reveal!


  10. Nice work. I’ve always loved home remodelling activities. That’s why I always watch ABC’s Extreme Makeovers home edition. Congrats on the fast paced construction. Sometimes you just have that moment where all things seem to fall into place.

    That is a lot of work but you did good renovation. You made a lot of changes like the tiles, floors, new roof, electrical, plumbing and tree pruning. Good luck with the cabinets, painting and emptying the dumpster. Thanks for sharing nice photographs. I also like the new windows and front door.

    It’s looking great, Liz! Those hardwoods are a really nice touch. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

    Renovation WOW it’s a lot of work i can’t imagine that when my parents do the renovation of there rest house so much things to do lucky they pay to a person who help them to organized things. and i also preparing because my husband mention to me that it would be next year were going to renovate our house….

  15. I am so envious! Your hard work is showing. Great decisions. Good luck.

  16. Wow- You guys have gotten so much done! Can I ask- how much do you guys do personally and how much do you hire out to contractors? There must have been a small army in there to get all that work done in such a short period of time. Nice work!

      There definitely WAS (and still is) a small army in there! Jason and I are the creative masterminds behind the scenes, and we hire out the labor. It works well for us! :)

  17. My, but do you put us to shame. Even the items which we did approach in an organized manner have gotten delayed for one reason or another.

    i’m so impressed by the way you guys dive into these projects. do you have any advice for complete home remodel newbies? we recently saw a house in a great area that we would love to purchase, but we are totally spooked by the amount of work that would need to be done to get it where we want it. did you guys have a background in home construction/ working with contractors before the flips?

    • Liz - It's Great To Be Home says:

      Ooh, sounds like fun! The only experience we had was our own home renovation – we redid our house (with a contractor) from top to bottom about 6 months before we tackled our first flip, and the experience was invaluable. As far as advice, I think it’s really important to have a great relationship with your contractor, and to have one or more contractors walk through the property with you before you put in your first offer. That’s the only way to make sure that the costs are in line with what you can handle. Good luck, and have fun!
