Video: Flip house progress plus a giveaway from Duluth Trading Co.

Hello friends! Today – as much as it makes me cringe – I wanted to take you on a video tour of the flip house project.

I’m currently in the “messy middle” – that point when you’re exhausted from all the work but you still have more ahead than what’s behind, and life is, well, a mess.

But the truth is, much has been accomplished so far and huge progress is made every single day. I am pumped because I think this will be the week I actually finish the downstairs bathroom and can take a break from being within two feet of a toilet for 6 hours a day. 🙂

If you’re curious about what the “messy middle” of a flip actually looks like, check out the video below. (Be sure to stick around until the end of this post because Duluth Trading Company is giving away another $50 gift card to one of you luckies. Woot!)

More details and progress coming soon! In the meantime, enter below to win a $50 gift card from Duluth Trading Company, so you can get a head start on snagging the boots, pants, shirt and cap I’m wearing in the video. 🙂

      Thanks, Nancy. 🙂 I hope Tom likes his new book. Hands down, it’s my very favorite book for advice and step-by-step instructions for flipping.

    You’ve made great progress, I’m especially interested to see how the attic/master suite turns out.
    Would love to see a gas fireplace incorporated into the living space, if you have room for it.

    love the new upstairs area!

    ps also LOVE duluth. I just ordered something this week. 🙂

    • gail says:

      oops! what would I incorporate? I think you have it all covered, but I would definitely take advantage of tricking out that fabulous front porch!

  7. Kim R says:

    Great progress – I really enjoyed the video! I would like to see lots of storage since it is a smaller home. Maybe some built ins around the window in the master sitting area?

    • Susan says:

      Great idea, Kim. I’m hoping to add some great storage/shelves in the closet in the kitchen, to help store all those pantry items, cleaning tools, etc.

  8. Linda says:

    I’ve enjoyed following your flip and learning with you in the process! Looks great!

    It looks great so far! I would also like to see open shelving in the kitchen – maybe both uppers and lowers.

  13. Joy Wells says:

    Great job!!! Open shelving in the kitchen

  14. Mary says:

    It’s looking good!

    I’d love to see some alternate heating source incorporated into the house (like a gas fire place). I’d also like to see some energy efficient items in place!

    • Susan says:

      In the energy efficiency department, insulation on the second floor and downstairs bathroom, plus an entire house of brand new, energy-efficient windows should be a good start, don’t you think? 🙂 Also, I’m planning on adding a small fireplace in the living room. 🙂

  15. Emily Smith says:

    I adore that porch! I can’t wait to see the new peninsula you have planned for the kitchen!

  16. Megan says:

    Awe great job so far! I am so excited for you, the master bedroom is coming along so well!

  17. Alina says:

    Perhaps a window seat in the Living Room or maybe some built-ins.

  18. Sean says:

    Different color cabinets in kitchen would be awesome.

  19. Stafford says:

    Patterned tile for the bathroom floors and all white furniture.

  20. Pam O. says:

    Looking forward to seeing creative storage in the attic/master bedroom suite. Very nice project!

  21. Annette says:

    I don’t have any suggestions about what to incorporate, but I did enjoy watching the video. I’ve always wanted to take on a project like this and am looking forward to future videos on the progress.

  22. Shelby says:

  26. Sherri S. says:

    So many pretty transformatios. Thanks for sharing!


  27. MARTHAIA says:

    I hope you have comfy bar stools in the kitchen with extra bling too them…

  28. Drasa says:

    It is amazing what a little paint and clean up can do – right? I am interested in seeing how you can incorporate additional storage.

  29. Mimi says:

    Great job so far.
    I’d put a tub and a skylight in the master bath (& a maybe also a frosted glass “wall” between the bed & bath) to flood light into the bath.

  30. Mimi says:

    I prefer a “neutral” light pearl gray paint over the “neutral” yellowy beige that Nicole Curtis uses. Might consider that in your unpainted rooms (especially the master suite)
