We closed on this little beauty earlier this week. (Look here for a sneak-peek inside). Some people call it "flipping", but that is a term I don't use. Flipping would mean buying a house at a distressed price (which we do try to do), and then slapping a coat of paint on it, and then try to make a profit.
Sort of like slapping a coat of lipstick on a pig.
(This image is from our last renovation project).
Making a profit is truly only half the reason we do these projects. My dad and I simply love taking an old ugly house and making it something beautiful again. The money at the end is the icing on the cake. I'm not saying we would do it for free, but we truly don't do it just for the money.
Since we will soon be spending TONS of time on our new project, I thought I should get any blogging issues out of the way this week, before the craziness really starts. And I promise to document the whole thing much better than I did last time.
and I wasted a bunch of time (like changing my blog header three or four times, only to change it back to nearly what it was before).
The point is, over the next several weeks I will pretty much abandon the progress at my own home, so I thought I would snap a few pictures around the house.
And gratitude is a good thing people!
