Rehab Project Updates


New Construction #11.1, Acton is moving along now, but that wasn’t before finding out that our foundation was shot and needed to be torn down after we demo’d the house (surprise!).  If you remember, prior to demo, our engineer confirmed that the existing foundation would be strong enough to build on.  However, after the house was down the

This property has been under agreement three times but the buyers keep backing out.  Here is what we’re dealing with.. The land that we own is on two separate lots.  The lot with the house is on a nonconforming lot and the other lot (let’s call it Lot 2) is on a conforming lot but

As I mentioned in an earlier post, Rehab #8, Wenham has been completed and is on the market.  Well, after the first open house we heard a lot of buyers mention that the basement wasn’t up to par with the rest of the house.  So my partner and I decided to take it off the market for

I can’t even begin to express how happy I am that Rehab #8, Wenham is on the market!!  Pictures were taken over the weekend and we listed it on Monday.  We’ll just be adding a few finishing touches before the open house and first showing this Sunday.  This property has been an amazing rollercoaster and learning process from

I’m relieved to say that we are about 2 weeks away from finishing the rehab on the Wenham project.  This has been one of those projects that went way over budget and way over our scheduled timeline.  Thankfully, all we have remaining is the landscaping, finish plumbing & electrical, countertops, installing the carpet and some miscellaneous carpentry

Thankfully, this project has actually turned a corner and is moving in the right direction.  We’ve had our new GC on the job for the last couple of weeks and he has been doing great, working with the building inspector and an energy consultant to ensure we are doing everything by the book.  Now that we

Rehab #8, Wenham The work on this project has been on hold for about 1.5 weeks.  The building inspector came out to the project after we canned our original contractor (the scammer) and he had a number of concerns with the structural integrity of the building.  He asked that we get a structural engineer in

We closed on Rehab #12 last Thursday and my contractor has already finished the clean-out and stripped and reshingled the roof.  As I mentioned in a recent post, the house was previously occupied by hoarders so there was a ton of “stuff” that had to be hauled out.When I stopped by the property on Sunday and stepped out
