  1. Alrighty, cabinets and trim are done minus some edge banding on some plywood which I need to go get. Master Bath: Hall Bath: Half Bath: Keetchin: The Marble tub deck and vanity top are going in the master tomorrow. We will finish all of the tile work minus the kitchen backsplash this week, then staining and painting commence inside next week. flipper
  2. What is this digital switch you speak of? First I've heard of it. flipper
  3. We paint first 100% of the time. As a matter of fact, the absolute last thing that happens in our houses is the final coat of poly on the wood floors. flipper
  4. Good productive day at the house today. Cabinets are moving along: Tile in the tub surround and master shower are about 1/3 done: Exterior paint is almost done too. I don't have a picture of that though. I figure the tile guys have another two days and the carpenter has another 3. Then it's on to interior paint prep! flipper
  5. How much is the total project cost? You didn't ask, but I wouldn't do the driveway till the end. flipper

    Should I keep updating this thread or just let it play out and keep it to myself? flipper

    Found Dog

    OK here is the longer version of the story. I found the dog Friday afternoon. Apparently, she had been hanging around at a school a few miles from here for 2 or 3 days. The people at the school tried to find the owners to no avail. One of the teachers brought the dog to her house, which is down at the end of my street. She escaped from their yard on Friday and that is when I snagged her. The teacher saw one of my signs on Sunday and I gave the dog back to her on Sunday night. We were sitting in our backyard yesterday afternoon when the dog returned to our side gate. I called the teacher down the street and left a message on her machine. I noticed that she was home a few hours later and called her. She and her husband were trying to decide if they could keep the dog since she obviously had an easy escape route from their house. They decided that they couldn't keep her. The principal at the school told the teacher when she took the dog that if things didn't work out, she would love to have the dog. I left a message for the principal this morning. She is supposedly coming to get the dog tomorrow. Meanwhile my wife and I are taking good care of the dog and trying not to get too attached. flipper
  8. As with all remodeling you come across unexpected things along the way that need to be fixed. The painter found some rotten soffit during paint prep that needed to be replaced. It rotted out due to a poor design that will need to be addressed when the roof is replaced next time. The siding is painted: Which color do you like for the front door? My mode of transportation to the job site: http://s20.photobucket.com/albums/b231/hou...nt=IMG_7615.jpg Closets are built out and all of the doors that I didn't order wrong are hung: The beginnings of the kitchen are going in: Those are just to prove to jmf that the cabinets aren't from home depot. Cement is up in the shower and bathtub: I'm picking up the tile tommorow. I think y'all will like the tile and design in the master bath. flipper

    I think it's a mutt, but it looks like a mini-golden. Probably 15-20lbs. Sweet dog. flipper

    Found Dog

    Since I'm out and about in neighborhoods during the day a lot, I find a lot of loose dogs. I have a general policy not to try and help dogs that don't have a tag. We'll I broke the rule 2 days ago and I still have the dog in my back yard. I took her to the vet to see if she had an ID chip, but no luck. I've got signs around the neighborhood, but the owner must not have seen them yet. I don't have the heart to do anything with this dog that could result in it being hit by a car or euthanized, but I can't keep it here either. Suggestions? flipper
  14. The only time I see multiple bids really is on low priced bank owned properties. Usually a n00b investor ends up paying too much for it and losing their shirt. I remember banks asking for "highest and best" on properties since I started in 02. flipper
  15. 1.5 story: Do you have any pics of the house in question? flipper
  16. Well despite the painters not know how to hang sheetrock, work has progressed this week. Sheetrock is hung, taped, floated and textured: The elec. service has been changed: Exterior paint samples are up and decided on: and the doors and trim have been delivered: It should look a lot different in a week once trim and cabinets are under way! flipper
  17. First of all, why? Secondly, how is that a mcmansion? It looks like a normal house built in 2008. flipper
  18. the seller contributed $10,000 to the buyer's closing costs, so for comp purposes I'd consider it $389,900 . flipper
  19. I would probably use a random orbital sander to avoid lines. I would probably use a high quality foam brush, but not the $.50 ones. flipper
  20. Dagum, they already have the exterior lights installed without having this resolved. My money says that the structure on the right is over the line. flipper
