After the home inspection, we almost didn't buy that first house! But the seller lowered the price to accommodate some big repair expenses, and we jumped right in. It needed a new roof (decking and shingles), a new water heater and new venting due to dangerous carbon monoxide issues, significant kitchen and bath updates, and a very thorough cosmetic overhaul.
We bought the house in December and had to immediately get the roof replaced before it got too cold. I don't think I even have exterior photos before the new roof went on because it was already dark on the evening we closed on the purchase, and the roofing crew arrived first thing the next morning!
|Lots of potential, and lots of peeling paint|
|The mess of old shingles covered up the mess that was the old steps and porch|
|Front entrance and living room|
|Blue, blue kitchen; and more dated ceiling fans!|
|Looking past the patched walls into the study|
|Peeling paint and filthy carpet|
|What's with the mint green fascination? Our current house was covered in it, too!|
|Little country ducks border and heart stencils everywhere|
