No, seriously. At this point I should probably be flipping and freaking out. We just signed the docs and are the proud owners of our second investment property. Call us crazy! We now have 4 houses that we are trying to juggle- all at once.
One is ours- the one that you see here on the blog. The second one is our old house- we still own it and need to figure out what to do with it since we lost it to the fire. The third house- a foreclosure that we picked up and totally flipped from top to bottom. And now house #4- the newest investment property.
Yep, it’s official. We are crazy. We are going to be renovating two houses at the same time. Did I mention that we both work full time? And we have dogs? And extra curricular activities? And teach Sunday School? And a lot of other stuff that I’m probably forgetting to mention? Yeah, crazy would be an understatement.
But you know what? For some reason, I like staying busy. I don’t like to have “nothing” to do. I like to always have a project going. I don’t know why I am like that. I suspect I get it from my father. If he isn’t working, he’s working. He comes home from work and then starts working around the house. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE TO RELAX and go on vacation; however, I think staying busy is somehow good for me. I don’t know. I’m probably just talking off my head because I’m sleep deprived.
Would you like to see our newest property?! I will show the outside pictures first and then the inside. Note- I purposefully took these pictures before the house was clean. I like a true before and after. We also haven’t had the electricity turned on yet so I took these pictures using natural light only (which is what I prefer anyways).
Front of house
Gate going to backyard
Side door and deck
Close up of side door
Deck steps to backyard
French doors leading from deck to main living area inside
Close up of the doors… weird
Back around to the front of the house… the carport and storage room doors
Old front door access (not accessable now)
Back to the carport door…
Did you look down? The view is lovely…
Keep walking and your are in what I call the “dining room”
Put it in reverse and see some money shots of the kitchen
Dishwasher then the stove…
And here’s the best of them all… MOLDED CABINETS!!!
Let’s move forward… to the living room
Close-ups of the built-ins
And the living room from another point of view (looking into the “dining room”)
And here’s one looking back into the kitchen from the living room
Next up, I call this the “back” bathroom… maybe it should be renamed the Avacado Bathroom 🙂
And more mold… YAY!
Across from Avacado Alley (the back bathroom) is the Saloon (the doors to the laundry room)
Dark and shady lookin… just like I would expect a saloon to be
Get on your horse and let’s ride to the other part of the house… I’m calling this one the front bedroom (white)
The closet (which was actually the original home’s entrance foyer)
Let’s leave this room then walk down the hall to explore the other rooms… you can park your horse here
Front bathroom is up next
Next up is the blue front bedroom… this is the room with the secret compartment… very cool
Nice sized closet
And the close up of the secret compartment
Let’s move forward… the purple front bedroom…
Last but definitely not least, the back bedroom. It has two things going for it. An ombre wall and a very deep closet. This is the room I would pick if I lived here… I think 🙂
The closet is very deep but it’s hard to tell in this picture
And… a money shot of the ombre wall… with a little wallpaper border. These people were ahead of their time!
Well, what do you think? This house needs a
little WHOLE LOT of TLC. Want to know a secret? I seriously don’t think it needs as much work as our last flip house. Probably surprising, unless you saw the last one. Anyways, we have no concrete plans for this house yet. Our initial thought was to rent, but we are sure to change our minds a million times between now and then. I need to mention one thing. J.C. said that the avacado sink and bathtub was “cool”………….. THE END!
