    My name is Bryan (Bacon is my dog) and this is my first renovation.

    The house is a 2 story, 1700 sq ft that most resembles a Colonial brand of building. It's previous owners lived like no person should ever live. It's amazing they didn't die of some new disease...filthy.

    Myself and a few family members will be doing most of the work, but we'll be contracting out the well installation (previous owners were on a shared well) and septic repair (not sure what the problem is yet).

    Work completed:
    Carpets are out
    Cabinets are out
    Trees are out (obstructing well lines and growing into leach lines)

    Here is a video of hole we put in the front yard while removing a stump. It sucked. It sucked a lot.

    WARNING: Video contains a bad word. Sorry. Stumps bring out the sailor in me.

    This weekend we'll be clearing the rest of the property, which includes an old shed, an overhang built by people who don't know how to build overhangs, a dog run and one last tree. There will be pictures.

    I hope to learn a great deal from everyone here.

    Regards,
    Bryan
