The Before

The house had multiple broken windows and had been vacant for an unknown period of time.  Birds resided in the house and made quite a mess.  It looked like squatters may have lived in the attic at some point too; there were lots of old mattresses up there for make shift living quarters.  The house was partially gutted and was in desperate need of cleaning and renovations.

The wood floors were badly in need of cleaning and are termite damaged.

Old fashioned bathroom upstairs.

The house was divided into a duplex at some point approximately in the 1950's or 60's. The house was remodeled with wood paneling, ceiling tiles, and a wall was added at the front stairway to subdivide the entrance.

A second front door was added for the second apartment's entrance - not very attractive.

Outdated upstairs kitchen.
