Just submitted paperwork, hope to land this fixer upper, its a foreclosure, that thieves stole all the copper/plumbing with extensive damage to drywall and foundation. $6K isnt a bad price for a 3 bed on 1 acre.

anyone wanna help labor?

Wow 6k only. Not bad at all. I have lol at the holes for copper pipes.

6k for the whole house! I would think the land would be worth more than that!

Wow, that's a fixer upper but definitely a lot of potential there! Could really be a nice place if you get it, good luck!

Yeah, some punk kids stole the copper, furnace, and whatever else to scrap including the tin roof off the garage...oh well, I am all in on this project if it happens. The second floor I may gut and redo the floorplans, its kind of funky in a way. Imagine, 3 bedrooms connected with a common hallway that is seprated by a staircase and landings in a "T" fashion... walk out of any bedroom with a short hallway and step down 1 or 3 steps onto a landing and back up into another short hallway in 3 different directions? I would redo the staircase on the upperlevel to go onto a common hallway with the floor "T"'d instead of the stairs. The second level is a pitch roof so lots of cieling angles with skylights, I love it. No roof leaks and roof looks good for a few years still so first would be foundation repairs on 2 walls about 10 feet total, install electrical and plumbing. Going to get a wood burner for heat for the time being until I get situated... Basement is scarey as hell but once I get working on will be ok, this house was built in 1925, so I think the basement was dug after the house was built...could be enlarged if the supports are proper which would be very nice to do.

That sounds like a good deal to me

You could do what my brother did
he jacked up the whole house & replaced all the basement walls with concrete
then sat the house back down on it
it also took care of the ground water that was seeping in

When should we all show up to get started :)

You bonused if you get it! The floor structure on the main floor is worth 6K. Let us know how it goes and keep us updated as you start fixing it

I am in Festus Mo, I have thought about jacking the whole house and sitting it on a new foundation.. It is the old limestone foundation. Under the main house is a crawlspace, looks as if someone tried digging it out? the sides of the house are sided...supposedly an add on over the years long ago when the actual basement is currently, so its like a basement built around the actual house and the add ons built on that with original house in center with crawlspace...its odd, but Id like it all open, New walls and a poured floor would be so cool. I thought the interior stone walls could stay but cheap enough to build cinderblock walls as well.

I need alot of resources and cheap, limited income is going to be slow and long for any progress. I was going to have my daughter and her boyfriend invite friends over for a tear-out party and gut the drywall... later have them hang new after I get plumbing/electrical in... I need all the help I can get... Ill BBQ and provide beer for anyone who wants to
