Now let me start off by letting you know that this would be much more entertaining if I had a film crew following me and we could stage out problem scenes right before we cut to commercial break.... Well sorry I'm not that cool ! However we are well underway with this flip and it has been very very exciting. When we got the home it smelled great! A nice combo of animal urine and other un-describable odors. 

We were thrown back a couple of days because we had a lot of rain in the metro area.  While great for the city... it was a drag on the project. We were delayed because foundation was delayed. Which in turn has pushed everything back about a week. Everything is demoed out, flooring ordered, kitchen cabinets ready to be installed. 

We ran into this empty bee hive!
