The Stinky House - (1910 N 57th St)
Updated: Feb 8
Growing up, my parents liked to buy houses that people didn't take care of, were full of junk, and any normal human being probably wouldn't even step a foot in.
There was one house they cleaned up that my brother and I called "The Stinky House". Not only was this house full of junk knee high, but it had an inch of dog feces in the basement (hence the name).
Well, "the stinky house" did not teach us any lessons with houses like that. Below is the before pictures of 1910 N 57th St. We are currently in the process of remodeling this house.
As you can see from the pictures, it was pretty full and had not been cleaned in a long time when we took over.
We are not finished remodeling this house, but it is making progress every day!
Here is progress of the kitchen. It was gutted, new drywall hung, and we are putting in the new cabinets. Those new cabinets look fresh and are going to give this house a new, modern look when finished.
This is a picture of the same wall. We removed the brick, which made it dark and gloomy in the bedroom and are adding some fresh drywall and paint.
Here is the basement. You can notice the paneling that is the same on the walls. We are making a new spacious bedroom in the basement with a large closet. Who doesn't love more closet space?
I know this place isn't finished, but man doesn't it look better already? Sometimes it is worth it too look past all the junk that was left behind in a house. The bones of this house were in good shape and it is going to make a great home for someone.
We are planning on renting this house out in the spring of 2019. It will be a 4 bedroom, 1.5 bath house. It has a 1 stall garage, a back deck and a large back yard.
If you are interested in renting this place, feel free to contact us now!
Also, keep coming back to see the progress that is being made on this place weekly. We think you are going to like it!
