Progress At The Flip House

What have we gotten done on the flip?
We have been very busy tearing out icky carpet, rotted floors and badly cut molding/
Above is a picture of the bathroom stripped down to the subfloors.

The third bedroom's floor was un-salvageable.  What we thought would be wood floors under the carpet were instead old tile over plywood.  It was curling up at the edges and just ugly.

And the wood floors in the living room were buckled and warped beyond repair so they had to go too.
 And just when things looked like we were done with demo......a freak wind storm broke a huge limb off our neighbor's tree and crashed it into the house, well, the edge of the roof but it was still a bummer.  Broke some of the gutters but no other damage so I guess we were pretty lucky.

THEN, after we put in the new tile in the bathroom and installed the toilet......we discovered the sewer pipes were rotted through so all the drains were dripping into the basement.  Yuck.  Add another chore to the list.....replace all the sewer pipes.  Which means we also have to take out the toilet again.
