Oh! 1st home! Closing in two weeks! 30 Pics!


Haha Thanks guys!

Wall Colors are Def a Must Change! I also love the details and everything,
First week will be landscaping, General Maintenance of an older home, And Paint.

Also planning on replacing all the steel water piping for PVC.
Also, My dads co-worker is a licensed Electrician and good friend, he has talked about re-wiring the entire house. With Free Labor!

So, You'll def see me around here when I close!!!

Great picture. I think it was mentioned in another thread the boiler was old and has been replaced by forced air heat.

Nice Place. Wish we could get that home here in L.A. There are homes like that look in Old Town Orange, where "That thing you do" was filmed. Very nice.
Did notice the piping in the basement on the right, the ducting, might be suspect corrugated asbestos inside. Runs way hot for asbestos, like over 10%.
Make sure its not broken or bent or something or else your getting a nice dose everytime you run Air.
congradulations.

I second what tcleve said, some of the colors I can do without. I use to know a fireman there in Columbia who did a lot of wood working, I may be wrong he may live in Franklin.

JimF if you go to Memphis in May don't park in one of the parking garages if you like your car windows.

This year Memphis in May was under water, they had to move it to the fairgrounds.

Nice house! Especially at that price. I just bought my first home about a year and a half ago. Since it was bank owned I had to go with a conventional loan which requires alot down but I didn't have to worry about inspections.

Certainly a nice-looking place, even better when you consider the price you got it for. It definitely looks like it's moving ready except for the couple minor things you mentioned.

For supply pipes consider going with PEX instead of PVC it's a lot easier to install and holds up better in the long run. If you need to do any drain work PVC is a way to go there.

Such an old thread! lol, We're getting ready to sell and I already found the house I want to buy, let's just hope it doesn't sell!

Here's my project thread that I never kept updated.

1938 TN Home - My First Home, My First project, Tons of Pictures!!!


Hopefully soon I can post up again about my new house. Realtor says market value is 190k. Needless to say I'm super stoked!

Nice place. Most foreclosures i've seen are in bad shape and look nothing like that. Yours looks really nice. Congrats!
