If you follow my stories on Instagram, you found out on Saturday that we bought a new house. (And if you don’t follow me on Instagram, you can do so by clicking HERE.)
Yep. We did.
It’s a fixer upper that is in need of a TON of TLC. I mean….a ton! Like, you guys are going to think that we have lost our ever-lovin’ minds for getting it, and maybe we have. haha! But Cy and I seriously salivate over homes like this. They definitely do not scare us away.
This little house sits on one of the main streets in our little hometown, and actually looks better from the outside than the inside.
The exterior will not be as hard to fix as the interior.
Although looking at this next picture, you probably think it would be…
Guys…the inside is WAY worse! WAY!
Y’all hold on for these next pictures!
This is the front room, right when you walk in.
We are basically gutting this whole house down to the studs!
The front room leads into the kitchen room. As you can see by the crooked doorway, we have some structural work to do as well.
Once we rip everything down to the studs, Cy is going to go under the house and jack it back up so that the foundation is level.
These cabinets have already been torn out, and I will try to give you a weekly update from here on out.
This is the only bedroom, and it has the least amount of work to do. Although there is as bathroom in this room, and it is NASTY! UGH!
I’m sorry the pictures are so dark. We do not have electricity in this house yet, and it was super rainy the day I took these pictures. It was also the day my car broke down in the rain, and we had to call triple A, and then I fell in a big mud puddle. Yep. Good day. :)
This little room is a laundry room. We were starting to gut it in the pic below.
And guess what, y’all?! We had to buy a raccoon trap! There was a raccoon the size of a dog living in the attic. I kid. you. not.
Oh Lord, help us! haha!!
There is also a trailer on the back of the property that we will be fixing up as well. I’ll explain more about that later.
As bad as it looks and sounds, y’all….I am so excited about this flip, and I hope it leads to many more in the future. I love doing this type of work with Cy, and he loves it too!
That’s it for now! I hope you have a blessed day, today!
Love ya, friends!
