Four months ago I declared that we’re renovating a 3-bed, 2-bath rental unit. You can see the “before” photos here.
For the past 120+ days, contractors have torn out load-bearing walls, reinforced the foundation, fought water damage, ripped out floors, torn away drywall and filled several 30-yard dumpsters to the brim.
Now we’re rounding the final stretch. Beams are installed. Drywall is up. Floors are laid. Electricity is wired. Grout is dry. Plumbing is …. er, plumbed, or whatever the word for it is. (No longer sh**ty?)
I’m not quite ready for the “after” pictures yet, but I’d like to show you some “during” photos. We’re close to the final inning, or whatever sports metaphor fits. Watching it come together has been electrifying. (Relax! Not literally.)
So here you go. Check out the progress. In a month or so, when the paint has dried, I’ll be back with the “after” photos, and I’ll post everyone’s favorite: a synopsis of the costs.
