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.
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.
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.
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.
Two 30ft dumpsters just to get rid of the trash and debris in the garage, house and yard.... some Back breaking labor!
