Welcome to my first blog post! Be warned, I have no idea what I am doing so give me a pass on the typos, incoherent thoughts and grammar.  As a true redneck from the south, English was not one of my better subjects.

I have decided to blog so I can convey information on our newest ventures. I know, I am a little behind the times. It seems the hottest thing now is Facebook Live, Snap Chat, Viemo, Twitter or Instagram. Well, I do not have the face or voice to do those things so I will do everyone a favor and blog.

Several months ago Joanne (my better half) and I established a company called Pendelton Investments. The purpose of the company is to find real estate opportunities to develop/rehab using our many years of experience in the construction, design and real life education world. In the coming months I hope to share our experiences as we take on these new adventures.

I actually, started this blog months ago when Joanne and I purchased our first investment house to flip. My plan was to blog weekly about our experience and keep everyone informed of the progress. But after sitting at the computer for an hour or so, this is what I came up with for the blog, “My First Blog Post”, then I went next door to have an adult beverage.  Every so often I would see the draft on my website and think, I really should finish that up. So I am finishing it up 🙂

We finished our first flip in November and had offers within the first 30 days. It was a lot of hard work and definitely a learning experience. Here are a few pictures of the finished product:

Not bad for our first one. Of course it helps when you have a talented partner making all of the color and design decisions!

We are actively looking for our next property and also have a couple of fun events coming up.

Speaking of fun events, who doesn’t love Chili! Check out our upcoming Chili Contest! It is going to be a blast; no pun intended. We look forward to seeing everyone there.
