I may have a new project

 

I was talking to a friend and she told me about a house for sale in town owned by a man who is not returning to Mexico except to visit and it was at a very reasonable price. I have been to see the house twice. It has some issues that need to be addressed. I’ll list the issues later first is the photos of the house. It is small, it has two bedrooms and other that has to be finished so three bedrooms and three baths, a small patio with a laundry room, the living room is a good size and has a fireplace. The garage holds two vehicles end to end and the garage roof can be used as a patio as it has a spiral staircase that is very sturdy. The kitchen comes equipped with stove and fridge. The stove is gas there is a gas hot water heater.

Some of the issues are; Electrical wiring needs replacement, plumbing and toilets replaced, floor joists replaced in kitchen, floors leveled or replaced, unfinished room completed, patio redone, gas lines replaced, kitchen tiles replaced, AC installed. That’s the short list.  I am still in the “Thinking About It Stage”.

  1. Looks like fun! You always do great on all your projects! Too bad we aren’t closer to help.

    • I love a project at least at first then when the work starts and bills come in I wonder “What the Hell was I thinking?”

  2. Well if you go for it then it will be the first time I know that you have had three houses at the same time.. You do love a project!! LOL…

    Would this become a rental or would you consider leaving Pete’s?  K

    • Both options are open. This new project would take possibly several months to make it up to the standard that I would find comfortable to live in so there is plenty of time to think about it.

  4. You like buying houses I see.

  5. Yes, it seems I like to buy houses and fix them up and sell them for a very modest profit. It is the planning, researching and scheduling of the project. I have a vision of what a place can be and I manage my assets and skills to achieve my vision. It keeps me from running amuck on the streets causing trouble 🙂
