I haven’t been able to post much as I GOT MY HOUSE! 😉
My already insanely busy life is now, of course, much busier. Everything is signed and I pulled up 80% of the old living room floor- 1 board at a time, 1 nail at a time, with just a hammer 9 hours worth. Some nice new neighbors disposed of some of the wood for me (about 3-4 trash cans full went into their bon-fire instead of the landfill.) The rest is stacked, waiting for be tossed (about 1 trash can worth right now- but much more to go.)
All the neighbors I’ve met so far (both sides and in the back) seem excited that we are turning this monstrous 4 family back into a single family+ boutique. I think every person I’ve met in the neighborhood has took a sigh of relief when I told them. 😉 Everyone seems friendly and willing to help. I’ve been invited to the historic committee meetings too, and the “rules” really seem very easy to follow.
I also moved *5* van loads of stuff from our storage unit over to the new house so far (10×12 unit) and I have about 2-3 loads left to get done by this Sat/Sun.
Plumbing for the house will be approximately $1,500. Ouch. BUT That includes the new water heater and putting a laundry area on the 2nd floor (the same floor our bedrooms/living area are). It’s not really that bad I guess, considering I’m re-plumbing a nearly 4,000 sq ft house.(& includes the new gas lines-all need replaced).. Thankfully, I found help (friend is a plumber) for that, or it’d probably cost at least double. (Now… I just need to make $1,500…)
I do not have a quote for the electric yet…. I assume it may be about the same verdict… so far I know I need a new breaker box and up to 3 sub boxes…
