Third time around

This one has been a long time coming! We took the profit from the last house that we did and decided that I should quit my job. We have been working hard to build our apartment locating business. We have been in the apartment for nine months now... and it's been SO hard to rent again. It gave us a great opportunity to make sure that we could produce an income with apartment locating... but Jarrod and I were both really really itching to do another project.

After looking for MONTHS we found our current flip. We've owned it for 6 days now. We had the sellers fix the foundation for us, as well as provide us with closing costs. We are planning install hardwood (bamboo floors) in the living and dining, new tile in the wet areas, granite in the kitchen and baths, crown in the living, new fence in the back yard, all new fixtures, and all the little things that pop up as you're going.

We are hoping to have this home on the market by February 1st.
Here is the plan:

Here we'll straighten out the conrete walkway, replace all the trim on the outside of the house, paint the trim and the shutters an offwhite color.

We are replacing floors, countertops, appliances, light fixtures. We're taking down wall paper, retexturing and painting the paneling and walls.

There is some termite damage on the window sill, so we'll replace that

We are putting in bamboo floors in here, as well as putting in a new mantle. We are painting the paneling, putting in new light fixtures, and putting up some crown moulding.

We are replacing the floors, counters, sinks, and faucets in here. We'll replace the mirror and light fixtures, and pretty it up!

Master bedroom just needs a fresh coat of paint, new window treatments.... and decorate it :-)
