Farmhouse Flip

Hello!!!!! I know it has been a coon's age since I last posted....but we've been busy!

The most recent update and what has been on my mind the most lately is ...drum roll, please... our very first house flip! We closed on this bad boy last Thursday! So, if anybody has been curious about what is happening on the Powhatan spur...this is it!

We are calling this a farmhouse...because we are going to install our little hobby farm here once the remodel is done. It is on a sweet little quiet lot, surrounded by mature trees, and 4.552 glorious acres!!! You got the 4.552, right? That extra .052 is very important!

I promise, it isn't as bad as it looks....okay, maybe it is! Just pray for me!

Currently, this little ranch style home is 3 bedroom, 1 bath hot mess! If there is a problem, we have it. So far, we have roaches, shrews (what's the heck is a shrew?!), and spiders..galvanized plumbing...out-of-date electrical...no A/C and a 22 year old heating unit...mold...and severe foundation issues! I love the trees that are on this lot, but sadly a majority of them will have to be cut down in order to keep them from falling on the home.

So...here is the itinerary...pending what we find in the walls and which walls end up being load bearing...

  • Demo everything! (Them critters can't hide anywhere!)

  • Convert from 3 bed, 1 bath to 3 bed, 2 bath.

  • Converting old den into Master Suite

  • Demo back bedroom to expand the kitchen

  • Refinish hardwoods

  • Repair and repaint siding on the house and shop

  • Landscape like crazy!

I hope that you have as much fun watching this unfold as I do!
