So we closed on our FIRST HOUSE last Wednesday! We were very excited but for those of you who didn't know it's a definite fixer-upper but that's what we were looking for in the first place. It was built in 1948 and structurally things are good but boy it's in need of some updating. Myra put it well when she said "When I'm 70, if I'm structurally sound and my pipes still work I'll be happy". It was a rental for 17 years so what can you expect. Anyway the seller just finished putting a new roof on it and we didn't waste anytime starting the demolition. Hopefully we'll have time to keep updating the blog as we progress over the next couple months but with working nights and weekend, time might be scarce. We're hoping to move in at the end of April!
Here's a picture with the old roof and before the tenants moved out!
