East Nashville Flip House

Well as you can see I've taken a several month break from blogging! I have been too busy to blog and finally at a point where I have some 'before and after' pics of our latest flip house. This has been the most intensive flip we have ever done. The condition was horrible because it had been vacant for 2 years. There was a roof leak that went on for so long that parts of the ceilings inside had drywall caving in. No worries though as the first thing we did on day 1 of the remodel was ripping off the old roof and installing a new one. No more leaks!! The worst part was tearing down all the interior ceilings to put up new drywall and insulation going in the attic. The insulation was the blow in kind so it was little pieces of drywall everywhere...oh do I have pictures of that!! We pulled permits on this home as there was so much extensive work to be done. We have essentially rebuilt the home from the existing frame and foundation. Follow along as we finish up the home in the next few weeks!! Also, it is not too late to take advantage of home purchase tax credits by the end of April. If you have any questions or need a REALTOR this Spring, contact me at

Before Picture

There was this awkward wall separation thing that we tore down to make it feel bigger and flow better.

Progress so far

The BATHROOM...oh my it was awkward and gross!! We ripped every thing out of it. The only thing left was the concrete slab floor. It felt so tiny because of the layout, but feels much bigger now.

That vanity/sink was only 16 inches wide. And the water heater is NOT in the bathroom anymore!

All new drywall

New Paint! The tile floor was put in late last night but I didn't get a picture yet. I'm so excited about the antique clawfoot tub that is going in the bathroom (it will have the shower connection installed too.)
