I haven’t produced a video in some time of the house interior. Here you go for your enjoyment:

Everything in this video need to be gone in two weeks. If it doesn’t get bought or bargained for, it’s gone!

How do you have a weight loss of 440 .lbs and gain it back in 60 minutes?

Try donating to Goodwill and having them turn their backs on company policy!  After all my hard work and research throughout multiple website and companies, I was under the impression that Goodwill had a policy that made use of 99% clothes.  Here’s what I thought was going to happen […]

Second floor 50% clean, let there be light

The saturday before Father’s Day, I spent the entire time to clean the second floor bedrooms and just listened to Podcasts.  There wasn’t a whole lot of unique finds.  Mostly the material is made up of clothes and old toys from the 80’s & 90’s.  Aparently all the really old stuff ended up in the store.  It’s almost like reverse packing.  The easiest access point filled up first and as time went on and the place got more filled, the owners had to go farther and farther back.  I will bet the newest stuff is in the room I’m currently cleaning, the far back of the second floor… […]

You can actually see the second floor’s floor!

Dividing the time between actually doing the work of cleaning the place up and documenting it for this blog feels like a job.  That’s no fun.  After the last post’s weight loss, there has been plenty of room to work and lot’s has been going on.  The main room on the second floor has been completely cleared out, really showing off the square footage!

Good things come to those who wait.  Now I’m unveiling the third of an unlimited series of mystery objects. So here’s the question; What is it? […]

The weight loss clean out special! Recycling trumps garbage. Goodwill wins.

I feel about 800 lbs lighter today! Loosing weight feels great and this is probably not the weight loss you’re used to seeing. I know it’s been quite some time since the last update, but that’s just life. After all, isn’t it better to be out living life and doing things than stuck at a computer writing? Now that I’ve got some down time, I’ll fill you in on what’s been happening at 49 Columbia and everything else on my mind.

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of craziness. […]

Day 3 of cleaning, Zen mode.

I can see it, the place is taking shape.
I can feel it.  The warmth and light coming in from the newly opened windows.

Thumbs up.
Thumbs up.

Enough poetry, lets get down to business.  Today was […]

The conclusion of the visual tour

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.

A look of the interior, you are not prepared…

I bought the property only knowing what it looked like from the outside, so I had a feeling there was some craziness going on inside. Nothing could have prepared me for what I was about to encounter after prying off the plywood blocking the entrance into the building.  Check out the video below:

 

*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…
