So I'm a few days from closing on my first house. I'm 24 with no home improvement experience. I'd like to learn as much as possible on my own without having to pay big bucks (doesn't everyone?)
The house is a 1929 Brick Bungalow, 1150 sq in a very urban midwest town. It has plaster walls and a 6' (short!) concrete block basement.
Its in good shape, no significant plaster damage or water issues. The rear landscaping and garage could use love. Most of the issues are modernizing. still has the two prong outlet deal going but has circuit breakers.
Not sure what project should be first, I plan on keeping up with progress on here like several people do. Girlfriends parents gave me their old hot tub for free. I feel like that might be the first project. Got to relax right?
Heres some pics, ignore all the stuff its the sellers:
rear patio with sad looking driveway gate
rear patio and detached garage. Flower box there is gonna go
the sellers cluttered stuff
Anything Eye popping yet?
