How’s that for alliteration??
I left out one rather large part of the house in my previous post. The basement.
Our basement is actually zoned as a separate unit (so technically it’s a 2 family). It has a separate entrance from the side walk and into the back yard. The space isn’t huge. It’s a studio with a kitchen & bath, although currently that description is very generous.
Obviously they both need to be completely redone. The basement is at the top of our priority list because we have a tenant moving in July 1st.
Today we had a family yard sale with our parents. I’m not a big yard sale person because they just seem like so much work. This actually wasn’t so bad. Rob and I got up about 6am, pulled out the tables and started setting up all our wares. Our parents are very generous and decided that whatever money made went to our house fund.
At the end of the day, we walked away with $284 profit! Cha-CHING!! This is now our basement bathroom budget for the entire bathroom renovation. We want to retile the floor and install tile in the shower. The vanity & sink need to be replaced. We’ll also need a new shower head, toilet seat, and light(s).
We haven’t priced anything out yet but I think it’s doable. Do you? Any tips??
