Flipping Grandview: Closing Time!
Let’s switch gears a little bit here into our house flipping business. There was so much excitement over the photos we posted on Facebook so I thought I would blog a little bit about each house as we move along!
We close on the Grandview house on February 9. You can take a look at the original photos below. We found some cool stuff that the seller had left behind which we promptly listed on eBay. The boys thought it was a really cool adventure to rummage through the items left in the house and the barn. Mason was most excited about finding a working Polaroid camera only to be very disappointed in the cost of film. I welcomed him to my childhood dilemma and reminded him about his Christmas money.
Cash found some cool antlers, an antique chair & a really neat bird house that we’re going to hang in their tree house.
The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with just over 2,000 SF. It’s located on 2.71 acres in Grandview, Texas which is a little further out than we’d like to be but we do love Grandview! The house is really cool and will be a beautiful home for it’s next owners when we’re finished!

This is the workshop that the seller used for his wood working. It will make a great hobby cave!
This is a nice little shed that’s in great shape behind the house. The seller has a loafing shed behind it which we’ll keep. We anticipate the future buyers will either have horses or want horses so this will be a benefit for them!
As you can see, there’s quite a bit of wood rot around the trim on the house so we’ll have some replacing to do when the new roof goes on!
I love the beams in the living room and the rock fireplace! I have big plans for this room!
The carpet, originally a bright orange, looks to be original to the home. This room will have a drastic change coming up soon!
The kitchen will see a complete makeover and I’m excited for it!
Although the counter tops match the appliances beautifully, they’ll both be heading to the dumpster.
I love what this view is going to become! (That’s a charming wallpaper mural in the distance.)
I love the character of the front windows of the house! You just don’t see these often any more!
We lovingly dubbed this bathroom the “SpongeBob” bathroom. Although comical to the home buyer now, the work done in here was quite admirable in person. The seller had a true talent for wood working. I almost felt bad removing it all.
Here is one of the secondary bedrooms.
I love this front porch! The arches add so much charm!
Stay tuned for updates as we progress along!
