Trying to come up with ideas on financing the restoration of a 1886 home. It still has the original wallpaper, floors, 30's kitchen/bathrooms, original woodwork, original wood windows, etc...
It is going to be expensive, any advice on ways to help raise money to afford it?
1 Acre Lot
4 Bedroom 2 Bath
Finished Basement with Den, 2 Bedrooms, Kitchenette, Wash Room, Boiler Room.
We paid $55,000 for it, and it is in great shape other than needing a new roof and some minor water damage repair.
Updating, another issue. 1930's kitchen, 1940's bathrooms... *sigh*
What are the monthly heating bills that the previous owners were willing to pay or paid?
I think that you applying for some form of government aid is the safest way to keep your house in livable conditions.
Youre also a moron for taking the plunge into something that you havent looked at from every angle and figured out beforehand at least a simple plan A on how to proceed from there.
I hope to christ it doesnt came backto bite you in the ass, but there is a chance for that to happen..
Good luck OP.
There is that chance, and the previous heating bill was $1,000 a year for oil costs at 62 F in the home.
Washington State, East of the Cascades..
My house payment is under $300 a month... I'm willing to accept quite a few road bumps at that price.
