Re: DIY/Flippers Shut Down


When do these shows ever mention waiting on a permit, inspections, and plans shoot they just do things on the fly?.

I am working on a red tag now, bid the job a year ago got a call Monday am we just got a red tag can you help us, now permit went from $1550, to $4650, plus a automatic $500. fine, I bought them 30 days after that its $250. a day until its in compliance.

Every thing they have done has to come out its all wrong, they just never watched enough u tube videos.

Usual dumb stuff wood studs in a condo, plastic boxes, no conduit or BX so no grounds, dryer venting for A/C ducting with duck tape all wall of shame stuff.

I wouldn’t be surprised if all their money is in some offshore account and now they’re trying to not pay their debts.

Re: DIY/Flippers Shut Down


Of all the places you could try to stage a flipper show, Chicago is probably one of the worst. I'd think you'd want to find cheaper cities with loose building regulations

I caught that show once.

Basically the doomed to fail truckass poster boy.

He's what every ****head I've ever met has aspired to. Sunglasses, ill-fitting dress clothes, over-extended auto lease, poor decision making at every turn.
