STOP WORK ORDER!!! Ahhhhh! We had finished this cosmetic flip without permits and having a GC involved and it came back to bite us WHILE under contract for re-sale. We then had to dance around for the town inspector, get a GC involved, and spend another $15k to get the house up to new code on a handful of items, town fines, and an additional 2 months TIME. Great seminar, leaned a ton, took our money, and kept it moving. It was still a successful deal.

It matched our buying criteria and we bought it at wholesale numbers that worked.
