Hammer Time

Feels great to be back doing what I love, creating new spaces, and most of all home in San Diego. We spent all week doing demo on The Painted Lady, with 3 laborers I gutted just about the entire house, maybe only a half day left and we’ll be done. I filled nearly (3) 40-yard roll off dumpsters at $427.00 each. I was really worried that we weren’t going to be able to get the dumpsters into the back yard, having to put them on a public street is a pain in the butt as you have to have a permit. My only other choice was paying someone with a dump truck to drive the loads to the dump one by one. This would have been very time consuming and costly. The house is huge inside, I am really excited and can see the final product already. Next up on deck after the demo is done is the foundation work, then I’ll be ready to re-frame the back of the house and put the new roof on. So far it seems sub contractor prices are not that much higher than I was paying in Texas, although I still haven’t nailed down a good electrical or plumbing contractor. Here’s a walk through video so you can see this great floor plan.

    Looks awesome man. Great blank canvas. I can totally visualize it. It’ll be another beauty. Can’t wait to see more videos documenting the progress. Thanks for sharing!

    I am truly inspired to do this when i watch your videos.

    I am from Austin texas and would love to move back someday. I love real estate and creating something with my bare hands. My parents were always buying houses and doing renovations and selling houses. I want to do this myself. I love being creative and doing something with my hands.

    I cant imagine doing a job where im the boss and work for myself at same time creating something with my hands.

    just awsome thanks for inspiration
