Flip this house, my version!

Flip This House
Flip this house, my project

Day 1

It's been a while since I have flipped a house myself.  I have helped plenty of others buy and sell but this is the first time in a while I have jumped in personally. ....

I won't post daily updates but maybe every few days as progress is made.

The project is in Acworth Ga and it's a 3 bedroom 2 bath modular home on a permanent foundation and 1/2 acre lot with an attached two car garage.    The basic structure is good but it is dirty, smelly, and definitely needs some TLC.  Over the past few days I have made a few stops there and done a few things.  I changed the door knobs so I can get in and out.  I pulled the refrigerator outside.  The fridge was absolutely gross.  I could not see anything dead in it but it sure as heck smelled like it and I'm pretty sure that was the source of most of the odors.

Today I got the one known plumbing leak repaired and turned the water on.  No other leaks!!!   The water heater will need to be replaced but that was already anticipated.  Most of the debris in the yard was drug to one pile so I can start making some dump runs.   The entire interior got swept and cobwebs knocked down.  Serious progress was made on the sub floor repairs but the battery on my cordless sawzall died and I forgot the charger at home.  

One window got broken when I was trying to remove it.  OOPS!   Then I cut my knuckle on the broken glass.   So, we will need to sub contract the glass repairs :-)

All in all it was a good day.   I'm definitely not as young as I used to be and I'm really feeling it but hopefully the pain will be worth it! A couple of ibuprofens and a nice cold Sweetwater 420 Pale Ale and I'll be ready for tomorrow :-)

Until next time....
