On Saturday we moved back into our house. It needs a lot of work, to give you an idea here are some pics
This is in the lounge room, the first room of our house. All the cornices have mold on them like this, darker in some places.
I am just glad the lounge was not as bad as the bedroom, see...
Yeah, I know the light is a sexy as pendant, lol. That will be getting changed.
The kitchen is worse with the paint peeling, moldy and the oven looking like this
That took heaps of strong as chemicals to get it looking decent. It was near new when they moved in. I wont even show you INSIDE the oven!
Another delightful find in the kitchen was the "patched up" hole in the ceiling.
The rumpus room was not moldy but here is just some of the damage to the floors
The bathroom almost bought me to tears. It was BRAND NEW when they moved in. It had just been completed (not how I wanted it, but that's another story!) Here you can sort of see how bad it is, I know the lighting is not that fantastic, but believe me, it was horrendeous. It looks better in this pic than in reality.
The entire floor looks like this...
And the ceiling like this...
I seriously think they never opened a window or used the exhaust fan.
And next we have my backyard
What? There is a huge pile of crap in my backyard? Yes, there is, and 2 more on the driveway and MORE in the garage. Gee I am so lucky.
Did my tenants get their bond back?
Let me think about that...
On the upside we wanted to repaint and do a few things, so now, whilst it is more work, it is not entirely coming out of our pocket.
AND we got all the paint for less than 1/2 price. The floors are going to be 1/3 what we were quoted previously (a few years ago) and my husband is supremely motivated to finish it and sell it.
Originally he was thinkng we'd take 18 months to 2years. Now he is like asap!!
So stay tuned, I'll update you on the progress.
