My Big Fat Renovation

***DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT LET YOUR WIFE SEE THIS THREAD. YOU WILL NEVER HAVE ANOTHER FREE MOMENT TO WORK ON YOUR TRUCK EVER AGAIN!***


You have been warned!



My wife and I had been "house shopping" for quite some time. Even though I lost my job, my wife's income as a Vet is nice and we had a big chunk of money sittin' in the bank. We wanted space, peace and quiet, some land and all close to Greenville or a major road... I know, right?

Nope, we found this little 2300sf charmer on exactly 1.0 acre, located less than 2 miles from highway 29, so we're less than 5 miles from almost any store or restaurant we could want to go to, 10 mins from 385 and 10 mins from I-85. My wife is a whopping FOUR MILES from her job and it's a great location for me to work in Greenville, Spartanburg, possibly Anderson, and anywhere in between. It's also on a circle road so there is essentially ZERO traffic. It's SO QUIET! I love it.

We got a great deal, between the seller and the bank all of our closing costs were paid for, and we got a 4.375% interest rate. When all is said and done with taxes and insurance included in the payment we're only paying about $30/mo more than our 2 bedroom apartment. Even the electric bill has only been about $40 more per month.

So anyway, with nothing to do in this crappy economy, we decided to use the 8 grand the gobment gave us just for buying the place to completely renovate it. By "we" I mean "I" will be doing almost all of the work. She even sucks at painting. Oh well.

The first pics are of the outside and our sweet view. Only one neighbor on the right side.

...Notice the truck in the garage??? That's the FIRST TIME she's had a permanent home in a garage since I've owned her... I think this November will be a full 13 years!

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

More outside:

If you stand in the back corner, we have a really pretty mountain view thanks to the Duke Power Easement

The 3rd pic shows the tree I have to have cut down someday, the base is getting rotten and it's waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too close to the house.

4th pic is of the tree house they built using dead trees? It was completely rotten so I tore the whole thing down and cut the trees down.

All tolled, there's approximately 20+ stumps I have to pull out of the ground. About half are only a few inches in diameter, but unfortunately the rest are all about 6-8" with a couple being greater than a foot. It's good to have friends with backhoes I just don't want him to do the work until I'm ready (financially) to make the pad for my new shop too

The last pic is with the tree house cut down!

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

First order of business, buy a riding lawnmower and mow the lawn----then drive it up here and mow mine (although mine looks mowed compared to yours, LOL)

Nice place, was it a forclosure? just looks like the outside was let go. What kind of renovations are you going to be doing? I have plenty here, but our house is about 110 years old.

Thanks! We got the place on May 5th. I had until June 30th before we had to move out of our apartment and I made use of EVERY day I had. Don't worry, I've got about 5 months worth of pictures I'll be posting today/tomorrow and as I continue.

No, surprisingly, not a forclosure. They had actually paid off more than 50K in only 2 years on their loan. YES, they let the inside and outside "go"! My uncle owns a pressure washing business and when I'm done putting fans in the windows to suck out dust, etc I'll have him pressure wash the whole house. Oh, and the house was built in '99 too. Yes, we did get a "steal" on it. We paid over 20K less than what the house was worth and what other homes in the neighborhood had sold for in the past 2 years. Just 6 months before we bought our house, the neighbors just bought theirs and paid 15K more than we did and our lot is almost double theirs.

The yard... my father in law had a bunch of old lawn care stuff he wasn't using anymore and he gave it all to me, but it was almost 2 months after we bought the house before I had a chance to make the 7 hour round trip to pick it all up. I have a riding mower and I now keep the yard nice and short

First, I have to show y'all how gross the carpets were. The entire upstairs was carpeted, along with the living room downstairs, the rest being real hardwood. EVERY room looked like this.

After cleaning out my storage unit so I could eliminate that bill, and putting it all in my garage, I pulled out all 1600+SF of stinky and stained carpet from the house... and the renovation has begun!

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

I guess I need to show y'all the "before" pics so you have an idea what I'm doing.

Overview:

The house has 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. There is a huge bonus room over the garage, LOTS of closet space with a big walk in closet off the master bathroom, a living room, formal dining room, and a kitchen/great room that span the whole length of the house.

Mind you, these photographs were taken by the seller and PHOTOSHOPPED, yes, photoshopped. It looked nowhere near this nice in person and the downstairs/kitchen smelled like old Taco Bell.

I'll correspond the pics with what I call the renovated rooms.

1. 3rd bedroom/computer room. This room is not very big. It's 10x11.

2 & 3. Formal Dining room. It's cool they made it a "pool room" but you try and tell your wife you want to buy a pool table and keep it like the previous owners had it... yeah... that was a no go...

4. 2nd bedroom/guestroom. This room is also 10x11.

5. This is the bonus room over the garage. We will not be making this a bedroom. This room is currently being used for storage and will be "left for last" until the rest of the interior is done. Plans are for it to be a an exercise/PS3/chill room. I think this room was 14x22.

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

1. Bonus room again.

2 & 3. Kitchen. They took all of the appliances. They were very adament on this during negotiations. They were kind of dirty, so we paid less $ for the house instead of getting the appliances. I found out why a couple months later. I got a letter in the mail from Lowes for a waaaaay overdue bill for almost 2K. Lowes sells a lot of Frigidaire appliances and the amount was about what appliances go for, I figure that's why they took them. They left the country too, BTW. Sucks for Lowes. I opened the letter not paying attention to the name on it thinking it was MY lowes card statement. I was a little freaked out until I saw the PO's name on it!

4. The "Great Room." I have no clue what to call this room. I guess that's what people call it. We'll probably have a flat screen over the fireplace and a small leather love seat and rocker with a nice throw rug in front of the fireplace. That's what I've seen others do and it looks pretty cool.

5. Looking over the staircase into the living room.

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

1 & 2. Living room pics. The red carpet and pink walls were a little much for us. This carpet was stained too. The leather furniture was nice, I kinda hoped they would leave it

3 & 4. Master bathroom. Kinda nice. Going to leave this alone for now. There's a soaker tub and stand up shower.

5. Hallway.

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

1. 1st bedroom. This will be the main guestroom. It's the biggest room at about 11x12.

2. Master bedroom. It's a pretty big room, it's 15x15. It fits a king size bed with lots of room to spare.

3. Master bath again.

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

***DISCLAIMER: This house overall is in VERY GOOD condition. Almost everything I've done has been cosmetic. For some crazy reason my camera took a lot of "Fun House" looking photos where doorways, walls, windows, etc all look wavy and crooked. This is not the case. It is the camera. No idea why it did that, but the house is very straight and level. It's off a hair here and there, but all houses are.

Enjoy the following

I guess the easiest way to do this is to go room by room...

Living Room!

This room is about 14x15.

1, 2, & 3. What I started with. This was only 1 of 2 rooms in the entire house that had all 4 walls painted the same color. Every other room was "two toned" where 2 walls were painted one color and the other 2 were a different color. I guess that used to be popular, but I'm not a fan of it.

4. Carpet out. The house had squeaky floors and I had my suspicions as to why and I was proven correct when I pulled the rugs. The floor was put down using liquid nails with only about 10 nails per board. That's fine when a house is new, but over time the bond loosens and you get squeaky floors. My solution was 3 boxes of decking screws (for the entire house). Seems to have worked well. It was very time consuming though! And it takes one heck of a toll on your knees!!! This room is now squeak free.

5. You can't really tell, but the ceiling has one coat of primer and 2 coats of paint. The walls are primed as well. Even though the pink was a light color it still took 2 coats of primer to cover it.

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

1. Another floor and primer pic. There was some decent sized gaps in the floor so I put some caulking in them then filled them in the rest of the way with some wall mud... just trying to make the floors as smooth as possible.

2. This was the only major f-up in the entire house? That's self leveling floor cement, the area is about 6'x6'. The floor above this area is level, and the floor on the other side of the wall is level, so how this happened??? I went under the house and the joists in that area seemed to have dipped. I leveled out the dirt and put concrete and wood blocks under the floor to prevent further movement. Once that was done, I used the self leveling cement to smooth the area out. There was almost a 3/4" drop from the doorway to the corner of the room. Most people probably wouldn't have noticed it, but it drove me nuts.

3. New carpet!!! We went with the 8lb padding and stainmaster rug. Very expensive... but we also had to do 1600sf of floor! This was farmed out to a local flooring company, Greer Flooring. They did a great job.

4. Color!!!

5. More progress.

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

The final set of pics of the living room is where it is now. You'll notice that in all of my pics there is no base board. I'm going to go back and replace that last. It's going to be time consuming and a not cheap, so I decided to just wait and do all of the completed rooms at once. Plus, I need my garage cleaned up to get my saw set up... it's full of crap right now.

The last pic is with the furniture/new blinds. I love the new blinds. They're custom Bali's. They're "privacy" blinds where there are no holes in the slats. I installed them in the entire house. Lowe's was running a special for 15% off plus one free upgrade (we use that for the top trim piece) and we got an extra 10% off from a card I got in the mail for moving. We did 16 windows for only $1,100 (2 of those were "double windows" and another 2 were "custom sizes".)

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

Master Bedroom!

I absolutely hated this room. I thought it looked really fugly. Gold fan. 2 dark pink walls, 2 light pink walls, they even put some of the dark pink on the ceiling!

The floors were screwed down tight. There are no squeaks in this room anymore.

You can see all of the little holes and dings I found on the walls. Once the mud was sanded smooth I used a roller and mud to texture over the repair spots and then sanded that back down and it blends well with the existing texture. Once primed and painted you could only see where the repairs were made with a bright spot light, but even then, you have to know what you're looking for. I did this in EVERY room.

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

1 & 2. Primed walls.

3. Floors screwed down tight, any big gaps were filled.

4. Another primer shot, looking towards the door. Which, by the way, made bringing furniture in difficult

5. Ceiling actually painted.

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

1 & 2. More shots of the repaired floors before the carpet went down.

3 & 5. New carpet installed! Again, just to reiterate, we had the carpet installed with an 8lb pad. You could feel the difference in the old pad vs the new pad under the carpet. The new one feels much better on your feet.

4. The new cherry and brushed nickel Harbor Breeze fans. We bought 6 of these fans. 4 for the bedrooms, one in the bonus room, and the last one will be installed downstairs in the great room.

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

Wohooo! This was the first room to get color! I painted it the day after the carpet was installed.

I LOVE waking up in this room on a sunny day, when the sun is trying to poke through the blinds, the colors are so warm and calming.

Pic #2 is probably closest to what the color looks like "in person."

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

This is our walk in closet. It's pretty big. I tore out all of the old wire shelves and will be making my own someday. It does have carpet now, the walls are primed, and the ceiling is painted. In the last pic you can see the new light fixture, this will also be used in the hallways, the entryway, and the laundry room. I don't have the time or $ to build the closet like I want, so we bought some cheap stand up laundry clothes hangers that hang all of our clothes. That's keeping my wife quiet for now!

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

This is the first guestroom. It's the biggest guest room at 11x12.

1 & 2. Carpets removed, lower molding removed, and what a mess

3 & 4. Closet stripped. I'll be redoing ALL of the closets someday. For now, they all have new carpet, primed walls, and painted ceilings.

5. Old fans. Just not a fan of gold...

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

1. Well this sucks... I'm glad this was the ONLY room... but the previous owners painted over an old border. It looked like poo so I had to scrape it all off, mud and texture the whole top of the wall around the entire room.

2, 3, & 4. Walls and ceiling primed, ceiling painted.

5. Floors cleaned up, cracks filled, and screwed down tight. This floor was squeak free too when finished.

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

1, 2, & 3. Painted! The pics didn't come out too great, the color is a tick darker than in the pics, it's one of my favorite colors in the house, it looks sweet in person. This room will probably get a white furniture set.

4. That's my old bed. It's a queen sized Serta pillow top. Our guests will have a sweet bed to sleep on.

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

I missed a couple "before" photos:

The first three are the master bedroom before I started and the last two are the first guest bedroom before I started.

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

Guest Bedroom #2. This room is only 11x10.

1. What I started with. ANOTHER two toned room. Check out the HUGE stains on the carpet!

2. More floor stains and the noisy fan. It squealed when it ran.

3 & 4. Lots of wall prep. After it was all smooth I textured over it, then sanded that down some.

5. Walls and ceiling primed!

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

1. Walls primed.

2. Floors screwed down tight, with big cracks filled in. This room also ended up being squeak free!

3. Closet done, floors screwed down, walls primed.

4 & 5. I painted the ceiling in here before the carpet was installed... pics of carpet installed!

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

1. Finished room. This room is a little on the small side, so the bed is only a single sized bed. There's room for some furniture, but not much. I like the green. It looks better in person as well.

Re: My Big Fat Renovation

Guest bedroom #3, which is now the computer room. This room is an exact mirror image of the 2nd guest bedroom and is also only 11x10.

1. What I started with. I hated these colors, yes colors, another two tone job

2. Nasty carpet removed.

3, 4, & 5. This room had THE WORSE amount of wall damage of any room. There was actually holes punched into the wall (angry kids?) and lots and lots and lots and lots of staple and push pin holes. Lots of time mudding, sanding, and texturing this room!
