Who knew holding down a full time job, flipping a house, managing a few rental properties, helping care for our newborn daughter (it’s mostly my wife), building a website for my father-in-law’s homebuilding business, managing a blog, trying to find some alone time for my wife and I, plus all of the other small projects that come up (tax season, ah!!!) would be so, well, time consuming? As someone who likes to have more on my plate than I can handle, even I didn’t realize it’d be this difficult! So you have to understand my apologies for not updating the blog as regularly as construction at the Century Home flip would allow.
So, let me catch you up to speed! We’re about a week behind our construction schedule, but overall the project remains largely on budget. We passed our electrical inspection last week and our plumbing inspection yesterday – remember, our scope of work called for all new plumbing and electrical in the house. With all of the rough work (incl. demo & framing) done at the house, we’re finally able to move on to the fun stuff!
Our drywallers will begin hanging sheetrock tomorrow and cement board is currently being installed in both of the bathrooms in preparation for tile. Tile! My father and I delivered about 3,000 pounds of marble floor and wall tile earlier this week, which is no easy task. The plan is to have both bathrooms tiled by the middle of next week. After that, we’ll be moving on to tile flooring in the kitchen, which still needs to be picked out.
To be sure, there is still on ton of work to do, but the finish line is in sight. At this point, it’s mostly picking out finishes – paint colors, light fixtures, countertops, etc.
Until next time!
