Some of you may recall that both of my parents died in the past year... Dad on June 19th and Mom on Dec 31st... anyway, I sold their house earlier this month to a flipper - it is the house I grew up in, we moved there in 1966 when I was almost 5, and it needed a lot of work so ergo the flipper sale (plus, living in California, I really have no need for a house in Iowa that's not located in Iowa City (I would've seriously considered keeping it if it'd been in IC and not Des Moines)).
Anyway, the flipper has started work according to my BFF (who is closer than a brother to me). Its not white anymore. Tan - interesting color choice... and they've removed the screens on the side porch - he thinks the side porch is a comin' off, but we'll see (if I'd remodeled, I would've converted it into a sun room or small office).
I didn't have that much attachment - I thought - to the house, but now, I'm feeling very nosy about what kind of renovations that Castle-that-used-to-be-Castle-Carson is undergoing.
