    Told you guys I would make one so here it is..

    After going go into contract on another house, it failed it's inspection. Things were bad, so I kept looking. The next week I came across this gem. It was at the max of my price range. It had everything I was wanting and was in pretty damn good shape compared to a lot of the other ones I looked at.

    4 offers were made that day (first day it was on the market) and they took my offer. Inspections went really well and they only found small lesser expensive items that needed repaired and it was nothing that I couldn't live with or fix myself.

    So here we are. Got the keys to the house last Thursday 11/12/15. Today marks the one week anniversary and we've made some progress.

    Here's all the before pics, I'll post after pics when the rennovation is complete.

    Walkout basement with bathroom and laundry room [​IMG][​IMG]

    Up the stairs is living room, kitchen, and bedrooms. Notice the ugly yellow or the kitchen [​IMG]

    This is standing in the corner of the master bedroom. Door on right is bathroom that also connects to hallway. Door on left is entrance and you can see the link room across the hall and there is another room that is not pictured that would be directly to the end of the hall[​IMG]

    Backyard pics from the deck. A lot of landscaping to rip out next spring, and no the pond is not staying. [​IMG][​IMG]

    There you have it! We are painting the whole upstairs right now and cleaning up a bit. Got some furniture to bring over still but waiting till the paint is done. I'll keep this thread up for house shenanigans!

    We are painting the upstairs. Bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, living room, everything. Its the worst but the whole house will need it eventually.

    Here's some pics I snagged from the website it was posted on when it was for sale. Notice the ugly colors...

    The master bedroom has matching trim and walls and doors and shelves. They just painted everything the same color so that had to be changed. Should have most of the work completed today and tomorrow so I'll post up some after pics.
