We moved into the house almost two weeks ago, been crazy busy. Busting out a bunch of renos, and attempting to get settled in...feels like its taking forever.
I'm gutting the upstairs right now. doing some framing, and putting in some new walls, and shit like that.
eventually going to be doing the same to the main floor, new flooring kitchen etc. but that will certainly have to wait a few years.
So ive been cleaning up/packing my apartment. Im moving into my house at the end of the week.
So last night i took some stuff down to the dumpster.
The dumpster is usually quite full, i noticed on top a box on its side..
Full of retro consoles in mint condition (looks like they were in that box for years)
So i grabbed it lol.
All the hookups, controllers and there were games...
The mrs and i tested them all out.
And they work!! Mmy favourite is probably the gameboy player on the Gamecube..those things are hard to find lol.
Thanks for the tips guys!
Offer went through, and got accepted! Home inspection is this Friday! So if it all goes well I'll be sporting a house come March 31st!
My Realtor is actually a good friend of mine, we go way back! He's also a contractor. Wicked combo to have when looking at houses. He also knows the home inspector quite well.
This house is a little bit of a fixeruper. It's livable. no real issues (as of right now) We just want to do some cosmetic stuff.
I'm finishing the bedrooms the first day i get the house, just needs some quarter round, and a fresh coat of paint
A friend, (who is also a contractor) is helping me finish the attic, which is going to amazing! full finished walk up attic.
And were installing a new fence in the backyard.
All of this stuff is costing me supplies, and a few cases of beer!
Next summer, another good friend of mine is hooking me up with a concrete driveway. He pours concrete, and has a driveway company!
The offer day was super stressful, because a property management company put an offer in. I didn't think we would get it, as these guys put in way above asking.
Well because we are a young family, they took ours even though it was lower..I guess they don't want to see it get turned into some rental property.
