The Big Project - Before pictures.
In other words, the entire 120 year old house needs work.
Some of these pics where taken on closing day, before the hoarders finished moving out.
The previous owners, ironically enough, owned a company that cleaned out foreclosed homes. This house smells like cat and dog urine, there is 'FLUSH ME' written in permanent marker above the toilet, along with various other graffiti on the bedroom walls, these people started tearing off wallpaper to reveal the shiplap beneath in various places in the house, the kitchen still had old food in the cupboards... yeah, you get the idea.
Anyhow, here's the home in all it's nonexistant glory.
The kitchen. Probably the nicest part of the house. Needs virtually no remodeling aside from a few small fixes and floor refinishing. :)
One of the major redeeming qualities of this house... the man cave.
The laundry room. Scary huh?
Lovely faux wood vinyl floor. Though, I do love the clawfoot tub. xD
The bathroom. Apparently the ceilings where dropped in the 60's. And torn out again in the 90's. Behold the 50's wallpaper.
In the master bedroom is the bathroom door and the attic room stairs.
Originally this is the second bedroom, but we'll be using it as the master, due to the master bedroom being so much more to work on.
How do you like the stained shiplap walls?
Dining room, with more of the PO's junk.
The screwed up gas stove and the lovely baby-poop yellow paint on the floors. Apparently there was a 'linoleum rug' in the center of the floor once...
View through the front door.
The front of the house, complete with previous owners crap. :P
