House Details!

A little about this house we found... It's a hidden treasure for sure ! My dad's friend from work told him about this property. His father in law had passed away about 5 months ago and it had be abandoned since. I was opposed because I thought we were going to have to build because all my dad kept saying was "well there is this property" Anyway, we went to look and I instantly thought no in my head, seeing how bad of shape it was in. But at least giving it a chance, we walked through and saw that the "bones" of the house were in great shape and my dad started to tell me how awesome this house COULD be! Tyler and I thought long and hard about it and decided that with my dad's expertise in flipping houses/him building our current home and my grandparents old 3 story home, we would have the best contractor around! We have been blessed to know many people that are willing to help with things such as brick laying, applying gutters, lending us back-hos, general help and jack of all trades! We are excited to get started and I will FOR SURE update on the blog as we go along on this project. We still have to get a few things squared away but it will be soon! I always wanted a renovation but never dreamed of something this extreme! Careful what you wish for!

PS- It's 7.4 acres and we have apple and peach trees already! Get ready for an adventure yall!!

PSS- Pics are below! Remember this is a COMPLETE remodel :)
