A couple getting out of the rat race through flipping homes and investing in real estate.
I wanted to share some insight and perspective on “how we do it?” We both work full time, pretty demanding jobs and have a home and pets to care for. This effort of working, renovating homes, and taking care of animals and our home takes a lot of TEAMWORK! It takes BOTH of us to make this work.
When I get home from work I:
1. Let the dogs out. Feed & water everyone. Take care of the litter-boxes.
2. I cook a quick meal such as stir fry, spaghetti, Mexican food, etc. & pack it to go.
3. Do some light household chores, including dishes and taking out the trash.
I spend about an hour taking care of the items listed above. I pack up our meal and head over to the house to get started with working. My goal is to get over to the rental house by 5:30-6pm.
Danny goes straight to the property after work, changes out of his work clothes, and gets started on the rental renovation. Once I meet him at the house, we eat dinner together, I change and also get to work .
On the weekends, Danny usually has breakfast, coffee, and heads over to the property to get started. I stay behind until about lunch time, cleaning, doing laundry, making our meals, then I head over to the property. Most weekends, I run solo. I get our errands and grocery shopping out of the way it free up time for Danny to continue working on the house.
Once I finally, make my way over to the property, I work on things to help get Danny ready to do the major projects. Some items I handle include demoing, cleaning work spaces, hauling items out, painting, caulking, and more!
This is just a glimpse of “how we do it” when working full time and managing our own home with pets…we hope this helps let you know, it is possible!!

Yes, we improvise A LOT! We used the utility knife to cut our apples and working gloves as an oven mitt! LOL
Wish I had your energy! I remember when we used to do that. It was so fun! You are so right — teamwork is the key!
Thank you! It definitely is a lot of work! Working together is the only way this is possible for us:)
