Last week, we did something we’ve been researching/prepping for/planning for years – we bought a house to renovate and resell (AKA flip)!

The home is in Northeast Portland in the Parkrose neighborhood, and we purchased it from a wholesaler. It sat vacant for a while before we purchased it and has indications that there were squatters in the home. We’ll be doing a full interior/exterior renovation including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Tear off/replace roof
  • Install new windows
  • Finish basement (framing, drywall, carpet, paint)
  • Add 3/4 bath to basement
  • Replace furnace
  • Decommission oil tank
  • Repair broken sewer line
  • Refurbish/replace garage
  • New interior paint
  • New exterior paint
  • New doors
  • New upstairs bathroom
  • New kitchen
  • Refinish hardwood floors
  • New electrical
  • Landscaping

Some of the work will be done by us as time permits on weekends and evenings (Scott has a full-time job, and I work as a Realtor…and oh yeah, we have three kids!), but much of it will be done by contractors. Here are some before shots:
