meanwhile here are some pics of our flip house... (older neighborhood house that just needed love) I cant wait to show you pics of the inside..
|what it looks like now, except the door color.|
|this house was condemned and looked this|
way for 5 years. driving past this each day was not pleasant.
This is the front of the house and it looked this way for 5 years before the city condemned it and was ready to tear it down. We thought it could be saved. People thought we were crazy. (front view now to the left)
|The Back of the house. Garage is buried by yard debrie that the city|
bulldozed up against the house..the left back bedroom roof was collapsed.
|Garage door falling off, packed with garbage...Overgrown brush|
|view of bedroom after gutting|
|Chip was so excited to not only get the insulation in so the ac|
worked better, but to see the first piece of drywall go up really
started making it feel closer to becoming a home.
|blown in foam insulation..cuts electric bill in half as well as reduction|
of outdoor noise..imagine being in an igloo cooler..
|living room from side view. we moved walls and added a side entry|
|see where the wood is missing on the floor. a galley|
style kitchen stood in that little spot.. the living room was less than half
the size it is now. where you see the back left wall,
we moved that wall.
|master bedroom. before we painted the new|
doors..Love the closet doors.
|view from dining room into living room.|
check out the nook above. its also a attic crawl space.
|I love this color on the wall. at night it is very rich and cozy.. day time|
the color is lighter. The natural light in this house is amazing now.
|to the right past the studs was the small galley kitchen. To the left|
was the dining room. far back wall was like a den.. the kitchen had 4
entrances??? not a good use of space...
|before we moved the wall and made the living room bigger. your|
looking into what was the kitchen and bathroom area
|I couldnt wait to see the door replaced.. YUCK...|
|Randy Sammons and Michael helped alot...|
|Bless his heart...after getting the insulation and first few sheets|
of drywall he could see a house starting to take shape.
|Dimensional shingles... nice!!!|
and I was up there helping using POWER tools. Love the nail gun.!!!
