Final Walk Through

Yesterday we did the final walk through of our soon to be new home. We only had an hour to check everything and make sure there were no serious issues with the property. They left an old broken hot tub in the backyard so we’re making them hall it away next week. The kitchen was added in the ’90s and it’s utterly falling apart and the bathrooms are just plain scary. The place is in desperate need of a good cleaning, a fresh coat of paint and some serious TLC but it’s my home and I love it! Here’s some of the pictures I took.

    Congratulations! You house has great potential! The kitchen is a travesty though…what were they thinking?!

  4. Thanks! It needs a lot of TLC but I'm really looking forward to the renovation process. The kitchen is a 90s travesty. The counters are coming off, half the doors are hanging on by a thread and the floor is a wreck. I want a new kitchen right away but it will take some time to make all the changes. I do love the love the size of it though!

  6. Thanks! We should get the keys sometime next week and I can't wait to get in there and start working on the place.

    very cool! I just found your blog looking for details about the MCM home we are purchasing in Indiana. Looks like you have a really cool find. Ours too has an ugly fireplace insert that we are planning to get rid of.
