That bathtub--and a couple more equally deeply offending bathrooms--currently resides in the Lockeland Springs duplex we closed on last week built in 1930, this house is in bad shape, to put it kindly. I literally wouldn't want to poke around in there by myself at this point. Hence the "haunted house" portion of this blog post title. People lived there, up until very recently, but they apparently never cleaned. Never repainted a wall or tightened a door knob. Never, not even once, misted an air freshener.
But don't you know you can count on Shane and our crew to make 110 S 17th Street a knockout? Speaking of knockouts, we're going to knock out a whole bunch of walls, turning this duplex into a single-family residence that we hope a family is going to very much want to live in one day very soon. One huge selling point: Lockeland Design Center/Elementary School is directly across the street. Another huge selling point: Shane is going to build one of his badass detached garages out back.
The plan is to take this house and expand it a bit so that it's 3,000 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, as well as a bonus room. We'll check in here quite a bit throughout the renovation process to share progress. Happy Halloween!
