A few months back we renovated a small one bedroom condo in a popular area of Tampa. The renovation was fast and fun...and the unit sold quickly! Basically it needed updating, all cosmetic ...so when we don't have to deal with new roofs, plumbing, electric, AC issues etc, flipping can actually be quite enjoyable! Just kidding! We love taking on these projects no matter how big or small. (That being said we did run into a few problems with this units water heater and the floors not being level...basically there is no easy job!) Anywaysss a month later my husband saw another unit in this complex pop up and we knew we wanted it! This also meant we would be working on the FlipHouse that we had just closed on as well...but we were ready!
This unit had a different layout than the last one and the kitchen was extremely tiny and set up more as studio kitchen/living room. The appliances were also small so I knew when we took the measurements for new cabinets that I wanted to put in full size ones instead.
The bathroom needed everything removed except the tub, we kept the tub in this unit and only replaced the bath/shower fixtures. (In the last unit we did that gorgeous tile tub with mosaic accent...but in this unit we wanted to use the money for all new floors since these were damaged and cheap looking.)
Aren't these floors just gorgeous!? They are actually a tile that just look like wood! Long story short on these floors I had chosen darker ones that were being used in both the condo and the house...when my husband calls me and says "The Floors in the condo are being installed today and they seem a little lighter." I was okay with that thinking okay well all the pieces sort of vary anyways so that's probably what he meant. Then I showed up...these were a totally different color! As luck would have it though I liked the lighter floors. :)
