Week 0 - House #2

Here we go again.

Yesterday we became the proud owners of fixer upper house #2. Interior before pictures will have to wait as part of this deal was that we clean out all the stuff that the owner left behind. And there is a TON of stuff.

Nice little ranch on a half acre wooded lot in a quiet neighborhood. This one even has a garage which should make it more appealing to potential buyers.

The big challenge in the near term is getting a new roof on and replacing doors and windows before the winter is upon us. Figures that we got our first snow on closing day. But this time of year we should be able to string enough fair weather days to get at least the roof all buttoned up. There is some water damage inside from the leaking roof, but not too bad.

"Good enough" is the motto this time around. Not one dime will be spent that doesn't add to the sale price and the Mr. will be doing more work himself.

Week Whatever

It's finally over. Passed over the keys to the new owners on Tuesday, just about six months after taking possession.

To celebrate, some of the crew joined us for a night of fine dining.

And guess what? Already had an offer accepted on our next project!

Purchase and sale should go through this week.

Here we go again!
