We installed a corner shower unit in the second floor bath where the old tub use to be. These are nice as they save space but still provide plenty of room to bathe in.

Next step is to stage the home and get it ready to show!

Plumtree is Moving Along

The outside of Plumtree Rd is complete and we should be finishing up the inside soon. Here’s how it looked on Tuesday before we finished up the landscaping;

Heres how it looks after we finished up the landscaping today:

I think it’s a pretty good transformation from where we were 10 days ago.

It looks alot like Bessemer St except we used green shutters. My first choice is a burgundy raised panel shutter, but this house had green trim on all the windows so we went with a green shutter to match the trim. We also added the white picket fence to the front of the property. I think the fence looks pretty sharp…. we’ve had this in the scopes of work on a few other houses but for some reason it always gets cut out last minute. 

Let me know what you think of the white picket fence. I’d like to use it on some other projects and am looking for some feedback!!

“Plumtree Road” New Project Underway

102_5645

We just started renovations on our newest project on Plumtree Rd in Springfield. This is a great location in a neighborhood known as East Forest Park, just around the corner from our house on Hartford Terrace. This is an easy project compared to most of our other rehabs…. no fire damage, no leaking roofs, no full gut…. just a light rehab that will take less than two weeks. I guess this is one of those light cosmetic jobs I have been looking for.

We have been working on buying this property for over a year. I first spoke with the owner in February of 2008. The owner lived in Arizona and flew up to show me the house. We were pretty close to making a deal with her at that time… then she found out she may be transferred back up to Springfield for work and she decided to hold onto the house. Thanks to Dominics persistent follow up we were the first ones on her mind when she realized she would not be coming back to Springfield and she needed to get rid of the house!!

It’s a nice Cape with a huge backyard, similiar to our house on Bessemer St. This house has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. We will be painting the outside, updating the second floor bath, putting on a roof, doing some sheetrock repairs, refinishing the hardwoods, repairing some water damage from a leaking pipe, and painting everything.    Heres some more photos:

High Effeciency Furnace

Tankless Water Heater

You’ll notice that the kitchen ceiling is laying on the kitchen floor in the above pictures. There was a steady leak from the upstairs bathroom sink supply line that caved in the kitchen ceiling.

The good thing is this house already had a brand new high efficiency furnace and tankless water heater installed, those are big ticket items that we don’t have to address.

We don’t have a huge budget on this one so it’s not going to be as decked out as Bessemer, but it will still look real sharp when we’re done!
