Hey Everyone, I made a thread when I purchased the home a few months ago. I'm creating this as my official project thread where you can follow
everything I'm doing, and help me out.
I have lurked these forums for a lil while now and plan to pull the great knowledge from all the wonderful minds that are here!
So, I suppose I'll start.
I received a binder a few months after I bought the home, it's amazing but it tells the homes story and other wonderful details. I'm so lucky to have this binder/book. I'll get to the story after the specs.
Specs: Purchased for 100k Foreclosure
1938 TN home, Zoned Historical property via the local zoning and Historical society.
Main Floor 2,600 sq ft
Full Unfinished Basement Additional 2,600 sq ft.
Unfinished Attic 902 sq ft
Original Refinished Hardwoof Floors ThroughOut the entire Main Floor.
Granite Counters in Kitchen and Laundry Room
10 ft ceilings
3 Bed, 2 Full Bath. 2 Living Rooms, 2 Dining Rooms (remember formal and family versions)
2nd Living has a room off of it, which I'm turning into a wonderful master closet.
7/10 of an Acre Lot.
Paved Drive ( Needs redone )
2.5 Car Carport. Brick. Only needs door and bricking in window to make garage.
I purchased the home from a couple who bought it in 2005 for 160,000
and then put almost 60,000 into it to help restore it to it's current condition.
I love all the wonderful detail and the home has so much character you simply don't find in newer homes unless their multi millions, even then it's not that same character in my opinion.
I got this book. This drawing was done in 1999 and inside of this are pictures, quotes for work to be done, receipts and other things pertaining to the home.
And heres the store on the inside cover..
It goes on etc.... records of all prev. owners etc... It was awesome to have the story behind the home. Esp one this old.
Photos of the home. I'm going to Include Photos when I bought it, and below that will be it's current state and how it looks.
