Historical home in a neighborhood I grew up loving. Beautiful oak as far as the eye can see. However, the rest of the house scavenged by scrappers. There is a lot of costly work to be done... it's going to be a labor of love.
Repaired the triple flue chimney. Company was a bit of a headache, no-shows and didn't do what was actual on the proposal (Detroit City Sweep), but it looks nice and I'm praying it lasts.
Two 30ft dumpsters just to get rid of the trash and debris in the garage, house and yard.... some Back breaking labor!
Installed a new front door.
misc materials $50
This job took about 8 hours to do
Still needs paint on the trim work I imagine this won't cost more than $20 to and a hour or two.
Replaced roof. Costly but well worth it. A lot of companies tried to convince me there was cedar shake on the roof... therefore justifying a $25K or better quote. There was no cedar shake and the true cost was $13 - $16K. Be careful selecting contractors on your own if you don't know much about construction and home repair.
