The House at Huckleberry Hill

House at Huckleberry Hill

We haven't talked much about the house other than little comments here and there.  Following is a list of some of the more negative aspects of the house that we are either planning to fix (or have fixed) or learning to live with:
  • We hoped not to have such close neighbors
  • Lots of spiders
  • Roof was covered in moss and not salvageable.  It caused some damage to the inside of the house due to leaking.
  • Dogs had run rampant in the house
  • House was filthy
  • House slopes a little to the back - not from slipping or settling it seems. They just didn't do a great job building on the back part of the house.
  • Plumbing, plumbing and more plumbing
  • Several windows were out and boarded up including the French doors
  • Deck was rotten and falling down   
  • All the floors need to be redone and lots of new sheet rock put in 
We've included some pictures of the house for this post.
Note the moss covered roof and the beginning of the debris pile from the inside of the house
French doors - We found fabulous new (to us) doors on Craigs List.  We'll show them on another posting.

Just some of the dirt and uck that was on the walls when we first arrived

My dad and Rich working on the bathroom - plumbing, plumbing and more plumbing

View from the bottom of the property when we first arrived
View after Rich pruned terribly overgrown laurel.

We will be posting some pictures of the work that has been done shortly. 

I had to include the following pictures of the maple trees leaves. They are beautiful this time of year.
