This blog is here to document the buying of a fixer upper house and the process it takes to fix it up. There will be mistakes and grand ideas that never happen. It's going to be fun and hopefully an interesting read.
We've handled our electrical issue, got our plumbing completed, and now it's detail time. We've been working on this project for a long time and for the longest time it seemed like it would never end. But now we should be moving in this week! Can you believe it? It's really looking beautiful. The kitchen looks like a kitchen and has working appliances. Lighting fixtures that have been in a box for a year have been installed. We have definitely struggled with obstacles along the way. Some were related to the house, and some were just a part of life. But I can see the light at the end of this tunnel, and that makes me smile.
I'm going to take lots of pictures of the Crap Shack when all is said and done, but here's a taste of where we are at.
