This Ugly House

This is a log of This Ugly House. We purchased a 100 year old home that has not been updated since 1978. The idea behind this blog is to chronicle the trials and triumphants of updating This Ugly House and showing what a true beauty it can really be.

Yesterday we closed on This Ugly House. Although we were supposed to close on Friday there was a problem with the mortgage company's computers so we had to wait until Monday to close. So after work we invited some folks over to tour This Ugly House. All in all we had about ten people take a walk through and confrim that this was indeed the ugliest house they have seen. I think everyone agreed that the house some fantastic potential but it is going to take alot of time and some money. I think a bit of creativity won't hurt matters either. I will put up some pictures of the house later today and talk about what we have planned for This Ugly House.

This blog is a great idea! I, too, saw the potential in this home. It seems to have good "bones". I'm anxious to see what you do with it!

Thanks for leaving a comment Linda. I just hope that the remodel job doesn't take too long.

Hey Bro and Sis, whatever you plan on spending on remodeling in terms of time and money, double the amount of time and triple the amount of money!
