Hello! I am super excited to share some big news with you today. It’s a project that has been in the works for awhile.
Drumroll please …
I just purchased my first investment property! It’s a small cottage I’ve dubbed “The White House.” I’ll be fixing it up from top to bottom, then selling it to one lucky family who will hopefully find it to be the cottage of their dreams. 🙂
Of course I’ll be chronicling the whole DIY journey here on the blog in a series I’m calling “Follow this Flip.” I hope you’ll tag along with me through the good, the bad and the ugly.
Flipping a house has been a huge dream of mine for many years. After searching high and low for the right property, submitting multiple offers on places I did not get, I finally scored this one.
I purchased my little “diamond in the rough” for $44,000 and am hoping to sell it for around $100,000 when I’m all done. I closed on the house last Friday and have already made some progress on the exterior, which I’ll be sharing with you later this week.
In the meantime, check out the DIY-friendly clothing and gear I’m wearing in the pic above. It’s all from my favorite clothing retailer, Duluth Trading Company.
- Women’s DuluthFlex Daily Slim Leg Jeans (These are the most comfortable and flattering jeans I have ever worn. #truestory)
- Women’s Crosscut Performance Flannel Shirt (My husband makes fun of me because I have about 100 of these in my closet. Love the length and feminine fit.)
- Women’s Goatskin Gardening Gloves (I use these for EVERY PROJECT.)
- Women’s Keen Revel III Boots (These are toasty warm, waterproof and super comfy.)
