The beginning.

On Oct 3, 2013 we closed on this little house.  We also got 4.8 acres of land with it.  The main part of the house was built in 1900 and we are pretty sure was only one room.  Our main floor consists of three rooms that were all built at different times. The back half of the house is a half story (8 steps up to the second floor and 5 steps down to the basement) and is much newer (don’t know the exact date).  This has made renovating very interesting.  From the outside it looks pretty good, but looks can be deceiving.  The inside was a mess.  The house had been empty for over a year, it was a foreclosure. There was mold in the basement, no flooring in the upstairs.  The bathrooms were in bad shape.  We spent the first month sleeping on the living room floor on a mattress.  During that time we got the bathrooms usable, and the upstairs bedroom and office usable. First the we did was to get rid of the mold. We officially moved in Oct 31, 2013.

The renovation journey begins…
