Diary of a House Flip post #10

The stove was installed and we did a few other things around the house today.  Here is an affiliate link to the stove we picked.

Choosing a stove was a difficult decision because I knew that a cook is going to look at the stove, and a person that does not cook won't care.  I had to find a good middle ground.  This is a starter home, so spending thousands on a stove would be senseless, but I still wanted functional.  I decided for getting convection.  I have a convection oven at home and I love it.  My cookies don't burn on the bottom before they are finished cooking on the top in a convection oven.

We are still deciding if we should leave the fridge or cart it home and store it for our next rental, but we are using it for waters right now, so it's staying put.

I also put the finishing touches on the bathroom cabinet today.  A coat of paint, which isn't perfect, but will do, and some new hardware.

I am also going to see if I can find something to clean the brass off.  The original owners name is engraved on the knocker and while some people think that might be a little weird, it's very light and hard to see and I like it.  It means that someone loved this house at one point.  Even though it was an awful mess when I purchased it, at one time, this house was loved.
