Update and Unexpected Problem at our Raleigh Flip

The Hole-y Colonial in North Raleigh is Moving Along!

Unfortunately, we ran into a problem yesterday while visiting the job site. Watch the video above to see what Addison found.

We are already about 1/2 way through the construction process, since this is a smaller scaled renovation.

We had to turn off the HVAC for the upstairs unit, so the condensation will stop accumulating, and put a large bucket under where it was dripping. These are the sort of “unexpected” problems that you sort of have to expect to happen at some point while flipping a house – so we are choosing #rest instead of #stress. Also, if you want to see a cute little video of our “flippers in training” you can watch it here.

We are going to take a few days to celebrate Memorial Day, remember what a privilege it is to be free and spend time with family and friends. Have a happy and safe Memorial Day!

Until Next Time…
