Jeff and I had our inspection yesterday. Everything went very well. The house is structurally in great shape...just a few little kinks that need to be worked out. The house needs a new roof, which we already knew. The biggest surprise was there is a little moisture in the basement, so all existing drywall, carpet, etc. needs to be ripped out. No biggie. We were planning on finishing the basement in the next year or so. I am excited that we get to start from scratch. There is no task too big for my man! I am very lucky that Jeff is so handy.
So, on our agenda for the next two months...
1. New Roof
2. Demo basement
3. Refinish floors
4. New paint/trim
5. New blinds / light fixtures / outlet covers
8. Update bathroom with new sink/tile/paint
9. Kitchen - new cupboards, countertops, floor, etc.
10. By fall, we hope to refinish the upstairs. New paint,trim, add a closet, and carpet.
Can't wait to get to work and build some sweat equity! And, yes I will be helping quite a bit. I was ripping out trim and scraping wallpaper at 9 months pregnant...I think I can handle these projects no prob.
