How I spent my summer vacation
#1
I think butchers lived here. I didn't know any better when I bought this place but the more I looked the less I liked. I've been trying to return this house back to what I think it should look like. They said the guy would drink a bunch of beer.Then get the saw out and start cutting. I put shorter windows in and brought the roof line back up to meet the siding. Oh and the black hole. It had a window for the third bedroom he designed. He moved load bearing walls 4ft. I had at least 3 water leaks in this area. What a money-pit. Roofers are coming in 2 weeks. Roof and chimney tear-out $7600+. Of course I need siding too. After 2 wks I had 1500- 1800 unread post.

Looks like your making progress though. Nothing wrong with spending money fixing up a home...or car....

It's a 1940. I got it pretty cheap 7 yrs ago. Put at least 15k in it and then the housing market dropped. I'm going to keep plugging away but I know I won't make any money on this so-called investment.Sad

Hey Roy. What does WOW mean. I did a good job or what a bunch of butchers?

It was 105-115 heat index the whole time. South side of the house. Just about over did it. It only rained 1 day in 2 wks. I got lucky. Once I started there was no turning back. You know I didn't have one visitor in 2 weeks.Huh I don't have any kids so that is a spoiled cat your looking at.

It looks like progress is being made, keep up the good work. It will pay off soon. My first house was built in 1922. It took considerable work but it served me and mine well for a few years. It really can be worse, we had a 17.5 % "Note" (1982). I actually sold it for plus in 1985. It was in the aromatic town of Decatur, IllinoisTongue Hang in. Chuck

Aromatic town is right. That's funny. I'll will pay it off in 12 years total. 4.75%
