*Raises paw......I are alive and kicking! Appologies for the lapse in communication to everyone!
Azmodan and myself made it safely to Iowa. After a brief visit in Davenport, Iowa..We moved further towards the midwest. Carroll Iowa to be exact. And so far it's been great! Found a beauty of a house..Though she needs work..She is well worth the effort!
Here's a breakdown on what she(the house).
- Built in 1902(architecture denotes it being older.)
-1/4 acre lot
-Origionally it was a group of 7 apartments with 9 bathrooms(but that will change soon.)
-Front doors are 9 ft 10 and made of walnut(with all original bronze door knobs and hinges).
- Front porch is approximately 405 sq ft, wrap around of course.
-12ft valted ceilings with origional plaster freize work and inlays
-origional oak staircase(Eastlake style).
- A secondary rear staircase.
-Angular fireplace in the soon to be study room.
-5 room basement(approximately 1200 sq ft), with vintage coal chute:)
-Full walk up attic(approximately 1000 sq ft), with upstairs a/c and bathroom.
- 1st and 2nd floors total about 2,895 sq ft.
-All new ducting with new a/c-heater unit.
And the list goes on.......
Azmodan, my friend Colin and myself have been working on the kitchen currently,a hallway and two bathrooms so far. So our work is far from over:P Everyday we find something new, or something fucked up the previous owners had done to the house. But overall. We are busy fuckers:P
Will try too post some pics as soon as possible.....
