We are flipping an OLD house! 115 years old, built in 1900.
This 4 bedroom house has the original doors, hardware, and floors. Sadly they have been painted some very interesting colors through the years.
As we started demo day one we were able to locate the front of the house after using a chainsaw to cut back all the old bushes and overgrowth. Thanks to my friends and family on FaceBook we were able to identify the ivy and safely determine it was NOT poison ivy!
We have now removed old wallpaper, started to replace the window sash cords – every single one of them is broken . . .
And to top off demo day one, the electricity was cut off this afternoon. Tomorrow is another day – demo without power.
Here are the unedited BEFORE pictures. We can’t explain the crazy paint colors . . . but we will be painting over it soon!
