Yup this house was a bit of experiment. If someone had written down on piece of paper everything that is wrong with it i would have run away. On the other hand i think it was great experience, i would have have never dreamed i would be learning to fix so many things. If i had loan it won't have been so fun.
It is nice area in summer for sure. People do move up here but slowly. There is small university, lots of lakes, too many skids. As long as you don't talk to any locals you are fine.
This house is slowly getting transformed and restored. Consider that i got it for almost half price, you won't get that much off a house in the city. I learned a lot, i just need a long break away in the winter as i used to do then i'll be right as rain again.
The survey is finally complete. They must of thought i was some flipper because they could have just complete it and i would have certainly paid for this. How could i not?
First photos is called 'bye bye driveway" and second is called "but, but, but...." Now there is proper survey the city will take action and order the shed taken down. I am still diggin, so i will hold off. Who knows maybe they will grow-up? I've got the skid steer coming maybe they will let me take the concrete pad out. It will be expensive if the city does it.
