Flip Failures 1st Flip Update

Hello Everyone , 

So I am now 7 weeks into my first flip and it has been a ride thus far. Kitchen cabinets are in thankfully! I ordered them on the 4th of this month and purchased solely for the fact that they were "in stock" cabinets. :( Four weeks later they were delivered. Now I know it may seem like I'm complaining however that's not the case. It was a valuable lesson learned, just go get them yourself!!! I am now ready to return 10 items that were incorrectly shipped to us, with another 4 s sitting at the store that need to be returned. On top of that, the flooring installers stopped by the property yesterday and ruled that they were unable to install. The reason for that?? We needed to have the A/C down to 70 so that we could have a valid warranty. Now that would be just fine, but the reason the A/C was higher was because it froze over yesterday morning!!!!!!! OH NO!!!!! 

Lucky enough it was caught early and no damage was done. We are still behind schedule but the end is near. It will be a beautiful home for someone... it just isn't happening soon enough.
