Things have been pretty busy around here the last few weeks.
Lots of decisions on the “Flip” house, in addition to …well, just regular livin’.
As you who follow me regularly know,…I showed you in a previous post the Flip house we bought.
We gutted the complete interior and just basically started from the outside walls in….
Below is the link to that post if you missed it or care to see it.
So many things are happening quickly and yet other things are going slowly …like a snail sometimes! 🙂
The marble finally came in for the Master spa/tub…so even though the plastic is still on it…I am glad it is finally in place.
This is a picture of the “before” exterior color of the house…it was a pale yellow with a darker cream trim color.
This is the “after” exterior color of the house…I picked out Sherwin-Williams Colors, Totally Tan base and Biscuit trim!
Do you think it was an improvement?? 😉 Of course it is a little late to change it, but the yellow was in need of repainting anyway….:)
The house exterior color turned out to be a small communication error between me, the contractor and the painters.
When I got over to the site…the painters had left for the day and I noticed they had just painted the 3 garage doors the Biscuit color! (the same as the trim was to be painted)…
I had previously sent an email to the contractor with little “markers” explaining in detail just what I preferred!
Alas, I still had to go back and refer to the email….it appears that the contractor quit reading my long-ish email…could it be that I write a book?
Nah…not me! 🙂
It only took two or three visits with the painters to get the colors on the right surface….but hey! now all is good and I am so impressed with the quality of work of the painters!
Hmmm…I always think I am perfectly clear….perhaps there are those who will disagree! Captain, oh my Captain…maybe?
The digging of the pool was an exciting time….now it is a hurry up and wait process. The Captain and I were both on site for this one.
The framework of the pool
The gravel going into the bottom of the pool…
The rebar going around and in the bottom of the pool….also plumbing, electrical etc.
This pic is of the deep end of the pool!
Now to the interior and I have a favor to ask.
So now, my dear readers…today I am off to look at faucet fixtures for all the baths, showers and tubs and I am asking for your input.
I am debating between brushed nickel or bronze….thoughts on your preferences? (Luckily, I don’t have to make a decision for a few days).
Of course this would also be for towel racks etc….AND door knobs. (which should be for all the doors throughout the house)
Right now, there is a mish-mash of knob colors until we get the final knobs in place. 🙁
Plus a decision has to be made on whether to add “panels” to the flat side panels of the kitchen cabinets or to add a trim down the sides of the end panels….
I would like to give the cabinets a little “pizzazz” ! So a meeting with the cabinet maker is also on the agenda.
I have to keep reminding myself that this is a “flip” house and that I won’t be living in it….so cost is always an issue, but I still want it to be good for whoever we sell it to. 😉
But the Captain has to write out all the checks, soooooooo
Have a great day and please tell me your thoughts on faucets! 🙂
