Life is an adventure. This our latest.
We purchased this home on March 20, 2012. Our intention is to fix it up and rent it or sell it.
As you can see it needs some help. We hope that what we do with it will improve its curb appeal, square footage and the overall flow of the interior.
The great part about this home is the fact that even though it was built in 1947 it was well kept and CLEAN!
This past week we have met with the carpenters about replacing the roof, adding a dormer, and changing the roof line on the garage. Everywhere we go we look at homes as we drive by trying to get an idea for a color scheme for the exterior. We are narrowing it down.
This week on Wednesday evening while Dean was at a school board meeting I began demo on the upstairs. We are taking it down to the rafters and studs upstairs. I removed 1960 style paneling from the walls and the insulation. Itchy, itchy, itchy. The shower felt great when I got home.
Last evening we continued work upstairs. One of the major improvements we are making is moving the interior stairway to the upstairs. It is presently a widow maker. Very steep, narrow stairs. Dean began pulling up floorboards for the location of the new stairway.
We’re excited about the project and hope that we don’t end up on one of the home improvement shows like “Over Your Head”. I will be posting more pictures of our project.
