Work is underway at Bessemer

We closed on Bessemer on Tuesday and work got underway today. The guys cleaned up the yard and began airing the house out. A dumpster will be delivered tommorrow and clean out of the inside will begin. It’s gonna take a few dumpsters on this job as their is quite a bit of trash in the house.  The Humane Society will be coming tommorrow to get the four dogs.

The contractor we are using is actually one of the guys I found on the Craigslist ad I posted about last week. He has rehabbed a few houses for himself in the past and he was actually already on my buyers list… and I didn’t even realize it. He has been doing new construction for the past two years but wants to get back into doing rehabs. This will be a good one to start on.

Here are some pictures from today, including photos of the inside, you can see how trashed the place is:

 The hardwood floors will be done over at Hartford Terrace tommorrow. I’ll put up some pictures of that.  We have two of our finished rehabs closing at the end of this month. Still waiting for clear title on the Fire Damage Three Family…. I don’t think we’ll be closing tommorrow on that one. We also have a rental house that we bought  in February on Ladd St getting finished up, we should have the new tenant in there May 1st.

  1. Whew! You didn’t post pics of the basement with the dogs. LOL

    I love the look of a cape cod style house. I think this one will really be awesome once you get it all gutted and fixed up. Looking forward to seeing the progress!

    • Hi Ingrid, I’ve got some pictures if you really want to see them…. LOL.
      I really like these Capes as well. It’s great when we can pick one up with an unfinished attic, we put a dormer off the back and add 2 bedrooms and a full bath. The extra rooms and square footage really increases the resale.
