it's what's on the outside that counts


we had a successful trip to the beach and we are hoping to negotiate something this week to buy our first flip! the place was built in the early 1970's. the good news: some updating has already been done, it doesn't have popcorn ceilings, and this is the view! the bad news: it needs two total bathroom renovations, and it is very little. but you know what they say - location is everything. i think it has a lot of potential:)

other updates: i've tried pulling up the carpet here and it is holding on for dear life. i have never known a carpet to be this stubborn. i wonder if my husband is paying it off?

the summer cottage that my mom purchased this past summer had been totally painted when i was there for christmas. all of the carpet had been removed as well. i should have taken some pictures, but it was really dark in there. lighting should be the next task!

What a great photo!

And as far as the carpet goes, it's mind over matter. Feel the carpet, be the carpet, conquer the carpet! Good luck.

been reading your blog, even though I read the whole thing when I discovered you, how, I forgot...anyhoo...where did you get your refrigerator, I read it all about the painting part, but what kind is it...also, whatever happened with the trailer fixing up on your mother's property? just wondering...

I can't imagine having that view outside my house! Beautiful!
I hope you win the battle with the carpet.
