The Ultimate Fixer-Upper
It is truly a blessing to be able to use my experience and skills acquired over a lifetime to help my son and his family negotiate for the purchase of the house they have been renting for several years. While some people may not have the foresight to see the potential for this home. We both knew with sweat equity we could save this farmhouse and make it shine again.
This has been a very special project for me starting with the purchase of the home. I was able to utilize my real estate negotiation skills to help my son buy the rental property he had been living in for a great price. While I might not have the team that Fixer Upper does, this project truly is a labor of love. It has been wonderful to work side by side with my son and see the pride, attention to detail, and drive he possesses to create his first home.
The first step in the rebuilding process was to demo the pole building tractor shed. We have been able to re-use or re-purpose much of the weathered barn wood for decor on a friend's she shed project and store the rest for future use. I love the beauty of weathered wood and the history it holds.
Next up we will be pouring a concrete slab and adding electric in-floor heat. In addition to adding walls. I look forward to taking you along the journey of this special home renovation.
As a father, it has been memorable to share my expertise and help my son achieve his home goals. As a Real Estate Agent, I love utilizing both my passion for quality craftsmanship in a home and extensive knowledge to help my clients navigate the home buying process. I would love to help you make your home dreams come true. Stay tuned.
