Hi! How’s the new year treating you guys? We’re off to a good start – we had a great Christmas break (I can’t lie, Christmas morning is 10x more adorable with babies and toddlers), and we’re thisclose to finishing this flip. Can I get an amen?
I’m not even sure where I should start with updating you. To say the flip is meeting my expectations would be an understatement – I’m absolutely in LOVE with how it’s turning out. Definitely my favorite flip ever (do I say that every time?). I love the layout of the house (lots of space, a big family room, oodles of bathrooms), the backyard (it’s bigger than my backyard which is an instant plus, it has a shed for storage and an amazing workroom attached to the garage which I would totally use as a kid’s fort), and the patio (it runs the length of the side of the house and would be a great entertaining space, plus I can totally imagine my kiddos riding tricycles and coloring with chalk out there). So, basically, I want to move in.
But what really does it for me are the finishes in this house. I know they might not be to everyone’s taste, but they make my heart sing and I’m SO happy that you guys encouraged me to go for this design. I love the finishes more than I love Mexican food, and that’s saying a lot. A whole lot. So thank you.
Enough rambling. You came here to see photos, am I right?
Well, I don’t have any gorgeous “after” photos for you (primarily because we ain’t done yet!), but here are some in-progress shots that will hopefully get you excited for the real photos to come.
I also have a random question for you. Daniel over at Manhatten Nest includes a diary of sorts at the end of each post about his new flip, giving a brief description of what’s going on each day of the project. (BTW, are you guys following along? Such a fun project to watch from the sidelines.) Is that something you guys would be interested in reading from me? Either in post-form, or in the sidebar? Just something I’m pondering. Thanks!
