We’re moving on. On to bigger, newer and better. – by newer I mean older and by better I mean a shit hole that needs a ton of work and is mostly inhabitable.
We’ve got a LONG laundry list of things to do to this place – I will try my best to post before and after pics as we progress. The house is ‘livable’ which is at least a place to start. Listed as a 4/3 on a lot of almost 3/4 of an acre we’ve definitely got our work cut out for us.
We spent the entire holiday weekend moving in. Back and forth trips from the old house in Kirkwood. All the boxes are here – now we just need to make a path through the house as we play musical rooms with the boxes we don’t know where to put.
This house hasn’t been inhabited in around 4 years – airing it out, cleaning and getting working toilets are among our first priority. Second would be to find some latches and knobs as none of the interior doors have any knobs. The hunt on Ebay has begun. And Third – We’ve been talking with a contractor about the kitchen. It is in pretty bad shape. Now normally we like to pride ourselves on doing our own renovations – a lot of the time with the help of my in-laws – who are always up for some hard work and a trip down to see us. But this kitchen is in need of a complete overhaul – we’ve decided to call in a professional – photos of the demo and progress soon.
I thought I would start this blog – for friends and family that wanted to keep tabs on us and what we were doing. This house is going to be a big project – but it should at least be a fun one. I don’t think Sullivan has even had a chance to sniff the whole yard yet!
