House #19: Week 2 Pictures

November 3, 2010 · 2 comments

We are at the end of week two for The Flood House rehab, and so far, we’re pretty much on-schedule and a bit ahead of budget

After completing all the demo, rough plumbing, rough electrical and inspections during week one, we’ve spent week two doing mold remediation, installing insulation, and hanging/finishing drywall. The mold remediation was a small surprise and pushed us back a couple days, but we made up a day on the drywall, and now we’re only a day behind schedule (which we should be able to make up in week three).

In terms of budget, the mold remediation went over budget by about $1000, but we did a great job of negotiating our materials for this project, and came in about $1500 under budget on those.

As for how the house looks, the drywall crew did a fantastic job — three teams over four days hung 120 sheets of drywall, taped, mudded and sanded — and the arches in the main living areas really stand out. We expect to start hanging doors and painting over the next couple days.

It was a little dark when I stopped by the house this evening to check on progress, but I got a few pictures…here you go:

    Congrats, J, looks like it’s really coming along. It’s going to be a beautiful house when done. I really dig all the arches.

    I’m sure it will be sexy when you’re finished.

    With the 600 million of “virtual money” the fed is pumping into the economy, we have at least a short term opportunity for more buyers.
