SWMBO told me that the house was going on sale. That sentence translated into – we’re buying it. The house had belonged to her aunt and uncle, and it didn’t matter whether it was something worth buying. After walking through it (it took about 30 seconds), and from what I saw, it looked doable.
Kitchen / utility room
That’s it! About 670 sq ft, slab on grade. Oh, it does have a garage – almost as big as the house.
The plan is to turn it into a rental. City ordinance regarding rentals is almost as thick as a phone book. The landlord has to bring everything up to code (the city code goes beyond IRC 2009). I also have to have inspections from 3rd party on the furnace. Additionally, I will have to pay $198 for a 3-year license allowing me to rent the property.
Once I started demo, it hit me – this is not a quick fix.
But, that’s for the next one.
