Woohoo! We have drywall at Ashland. This makes such a difference for the house! We can really feel the whole layout and appreciate the developments. It took awhile to get to this part because there were so many little details that need to be addressed and verified, but now that we are here… It’s definitely gone quick! Thank god too because we need to move-in 18 days from now at the latest. It’s going to be very close, but everything will work out. I think we might try to rent one of those pods so that we can move into that from out current house, and then have it moved to the new house where we can unpack at our own pace. Seems like a good idea but definitely something we’ll need to investigate. We really wanted the closing date for our house to be the 27th – But Casey and Ramiro wanted the 24th so we are working to accommodate!
Welcome to the flippingdiaries; a BEFORE & AFTER blog showcasing projects here in Phoenix, Arizona where we are buying houses, remodeling them from top to bottom and turning them into beautiful homes. I've done over 40 flips in the last four years, and I've got more on the way! We get some rockin’ deals, find quirky ways to use materials, and are passionate about what we do. I hope this blog inspires you whether you’re interested in flipping yourself, or just getting some creative design ideas that you can enjoy in your own home. I’ll start by introducing myself – mrjamesjudge. Let’s go back a few years… I went to school for Interior Architecture at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. During this time I was fortunate enough to intern with both Jonathan Adler and HGTV. After graduating, I decided I was done with the cold and headed west. After a few wrong turns along the way (literally…) I made my way to Phoenix, AZ. I didn’t exactly plan to become a flipper, but finding myself in a terrible job market due to the economy and landing in one of the worst cities to be affected by the housing crisis… All my cards fell into place. With the help of my contractor; Freddie and his crew, we have been able to develop these simple or forgotten properties into beautiful homes. What’s next? This blog… A lot more flips… And hopefully someday a TV show! View all posts by flippingdiaries
