Just Finished Up A Flip For A Customer, 2 Months Of Work!!


Just finished up this house, thought I would share a few before and after pics. This is a flip that the owners bought dirt cheap and are reselling. This once belonged to a hoarder and all i can say is it was nasty!!! Took 5 dumpsters for the trash!! All work was performed by myself and one employee, with about 3 weeks worth of labor help on misc things.

Believe it or not, entire house sprayed with Satin Antique white. I think its just the light coming through or Sherwin Williams gave me semi-gloss in satin buckets

Yes we had to wear masks for the first 3 weeks of work. We also wore painters suit just to keep the nasty from us. Yes that is a large cat box in the old tub, there was actually two of those in that bathroom.

Why did you remove the vinyl parkay tile around the tub?
Looks good! Guess you framed that wall out in bath for the window? I like the recess.

We have done a number of clean outs like this and it still amazes me how many dumpsters you need.

The bat wasn't the scary part! This house had shag carpet and mirrors on the ceiling. The original owner weighed roughly 400lbs. It was one of the most disgusting houses I have ever seen. On a positive note the owners have purchased another home to flip and we start construction in 3 weeks.

Re: Just Finished Up A Flip For A Customer, 2 Months Of Work!!


sorry, i'm on here every day but from my phone and just reading and learning. The guys that bought this house made right at $45k on this house. It was on the market for 3 weeks, I have since started another flip and I'm into the last week of the project. Not as nasty this time, but lots more exterior work.

We have done some Houston remodeling jobs for flippers who bought from hoarders too. Hard work! Can't believe you cleaned everything out with just two people. Great job on the remodel
