Part One – Before…

June 15, 2007 at 10:11 am 10 comments

In order for you to fully appreciate the photos of the house now, you need to first see the photos of the house before…

Before - Living Room

 The Living Room – pay particular attention to the fan which looks like it had been through hurricane gilbert and the marks around the bottom of the walls.

Before - bedroom (2)Before - kitchenBefore - bedroom (2)Before - bedroom

The Bedroom –  note the lovely wardrobe doors with the damp marks at the bottom. You can just see through to the bathroom which is grey with dirt. Note also the carpet – unfortunately this picture doesn’t pay justice to the fact that if you look closely, you can see it is made up of animal hair. Also, the picture in no way fully captures the smell (stink!) of the place – you could smell it from outside the house!

Before - Kitchen

And finally, the kitchen. With the cloth covered cupboards. Also doesn’t really show the filth and completely misses the foil-covered stove that was there, ready to burn the place down.

Soon coming – the now photos!

    that place looks like it needed a lot of work.. I hate the thought of keeping animals in the house.

    The place looks like a mona house by design

    All like that I would have passed up. I can’t wait to see what you have turned it into. Have you turned it into something I would want now?

    Is a good thing you could visualize what it could become…or else you might have missed out on an opportunity.

    I wanna see the red walls.

    I’ll admit that I saw a similar one in the same complex that was in livable condition so knew it could be ok. And I got it a lot cheaper than the one in livable condition so I have been able to use that money to make it just the way I want it.

    Adrian – not a Mona house at all – it’s near Devon House
