First cool find while cleaning the store:

A day of cleaning, almost 6 hours non stop

After shooting two weddings over the weekend, I took some time off from one job to concentrate on another.

I attempted to get started a couple weeks ago.  Walking around the outside, picking up the litter, new and old.  Having one garbage can with a liner for the trash, another for all the rusted metal scattered around the place.  I managed to […]

Finally, I take you through the second floor.  It contains a main room right above where we entered on the first.  Then splits in two tiny bedrooms, followed by a full bathroom with claw foot tub and a Master bedroom and walk in closet, that seems surprisingly large given the small square footage.

It also contains my favorite item in the whole place; A Majestic 7 Electric Receiver.  A very cool looking, but probably non functional radio.
Check out the video blew and see if you can follow along the maze.

 

Bonus info:  Thankfully, a nice neighbor allowed me to borrow his wifi for our wireless camera system throughout the property.  Not that there’s a whole lot of valuables in the place, you can never be too careful.  Someone already stole my garbage can full of scrap metal I cleaned up outside.

*Bonus:  Having owned the place now for over 6 months and shot the video 5 months ago, I just now got to editing and posting the footage.  This was the first time my wife saw what I got her into. Bless her heart…

How and why I bought a house for $5,315.00

This is the first of what will be many post along the journey of my first “income property.” Purchased on October 17th at a last minute county auction for
$5,000.  This is the story of ambition and hard work.  Lots of hard work.  In progress.

I bought my first house with my then girlfriend (now wife) in 2008.  No one had lived in it for almost a decade and it needed to be almost completely gutted and remodeled.  I caught the “bug,” the “I love to buy crappy houses and fix them up” virus. […]
