We are halfway through the renovation phase of the flipping process! It has been a crazy three weeks full of excitement, a few choice swear words, late nights, and unexpected problems. We have learned a lot about lawn care and interior painting, but we are looking forward to future projects (and hiring out more of the rehab next time). There are many activities in life where the phrase “If you want it done right, do it yourself” apply, but rehabbing a house (unless you are a handy person or contractor) is not one of those activities.
Putting the stress of learning new skills in a short amount of time aside, I have been enjoying finalizing the design, making endless runs to Home Depot, organizing the contractors and timeline, and watching the progress unfold. It is amazing how a house can starts looking new and fresh even with the rehab only partially finished.
