Our first house


 

B and I owned a single family home before we moved to St. Louis.  We purchased it as a foreclosure and flipped the entire thing over a 2 year period.  At the time B was a general contractor with his families construction company so he was working over time and we were learning as we went.  With a ton of help from our family we finally finished it in the fall of 2007.  We moved in November and within a month we sold the house. 

The house was a 4 bedroom 3 bath house with an unfinished basement.  We basically had to paint and have the carpets cleaned at least 5 times before we could move in.  I remember cleaning with an sos pad in the bathroom upstairs and there was black stuff running down my arms....gross!!!  We had a large hole in the front window from a baseball.  There was a small pond in the backyard, but the pervious owners took it out and sold it, but left the hole!  Here are before and after pics of the project !!!!  Although it was extremely tasking and there were many days that there were trears shed, it was worth it in the end.  We ended up selling the house for double what we purchased it for.   Here is out journey!!!  Might I add that we were also planning a wedding through this process!!...
