March 6th 2011

We took out a 4 foot section in the kitchen/dining room area to help open up the floor plan. Despite creating a ton of work, it ended up being a blessing. Two of the galvanized plumbing connections were in the process of disintegrating. The joints did blow out when the furnace quit and we found out 5 days later! Luckily we had the water off, when the pipes thawed we found the leaks before we turned the water on, the small pressure left in the system had popped open the corroded fittings .

All that to say, we replaced all the plumbing and rerouted most of the electrical that was going through that wall (it was extensive). Sheila, Brad and Liz have been getting the upstairs all ready to move in. We ordered carpet for the house and that should be in, in 3 weeks. Next up is to button up the kitchen area with sheetrock and then kitchen/dining room floors.

Bottom picture is the dining room opened up, not finished.

Flipper #2

We just closed on our 2nd "Flipper" It's in a great neighborhood by Lake Phalen in north St Paul, MN. Almost move in ready and of course we couldn't let it go at that...So we plan on a new kitchen and adding a bathroom. In our world that isn't to bad. We purchased at another auction for 60% off current value, in realty about $10,000 investment should let us resell for 100%.

FYI blogs after this post or before 2010 are from the 1st flipper....

Sheetrock is hung and taping to be finished soon

Just finished with the sheetrock today. Hopefully we'll get the cabinets installed right after we return from the Virgin Islands.

Basement of our house, Bathroom-Kitchen-Bar

The "locker room" has been partially gutted over the last 2 years, but I just removed the bathroom that was still functional. I have to re-level the floor and then I am moving the bathroom to the left side of the room and a kitchen bar on the right side and then opening up the wall to the rest of the basement. The two gutted pictures should line up with the old pictures below.

We sold the Flipper!!!

We're not very excited, it's almost like selling a child. We always planned to sell it, but it doesn't feel that great.
