We’re Flipping Out

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).

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 🙂

Avacado sink…

Avacado tub…

And more mold… YAY!

Across from Avacado Alley (the back bathroom) is the Saloon (the doors to the laundry room)

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

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

Nice sized closet

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 🙂

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The closet is very deep but it’s hard to tell in this picture

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

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!
