HOLLY HOUSE

We purchased this home in Golden Acres from an investor who bought it at a foreclosure auction.  The investor never looked at the home and sold it for way under value.  It has two additions built onto it (mine and Liz's offices) and a detached garage, none of which were counted in the original square footage.  We decided to do a complete renovation of the inside.  I was fortunate enough to meet James Nobles when I was selling tools out of my shed.  James is doing the lion's share of the renovation.  Pictures with black frames are original, work in progress is yellow, and completed rooms are in red.

Before

James is starting the plumbing for hot water in the shower, sink, and kitchen.  I found a shower enclosure in Phoenix  in real good shape, and got a year old water heater on offer-up.  We built a wall at the end in order to run the pex down for water in the sink and took out the wall and door to the bathroom to accomodate the shower unit.

James is starting on the living room. We will be removing the linoleum tiles and  putting down laminate in the Living room, all three bedrooms,and the pantry.
