Four Plex Interior Flip

07 May

This is the second posting for this project. I wanted to show some of the interior pictures of what needed to be fix/changed out.  The units on this four plex are 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom units, so there was quit a bit of tile work that was done.

The squatters damaged areas of drywall, ripped out appliances, broke tile, and left a lot of garbage.  I didn’t show the pictures of when I first entered the units because of the disgusting state it was in.

Just imagine walking into a place where all of the toilets have been clogged up for some time, garbage rotting, animal droppings and the smell of urine, appliances removed or damaged, cupboards broken, and rotten food in the broken refrigerators. Once you have that mental image, and those smells vivid in your mind, you get the idea as to what I walked into.

There was also some areas of drywall I had to replace, match texture, and paint due to water damage.These areas were mainly in the kitchens near the sinks, near the shower/ bathtubs, and in the laundry area.  One of the upstairs units had a water leak from the bathroom toilet, causing damage to the ceiling drywall to the downstairs unit. The previous owner tried to fix it on his own, but did a very poor patch job. It was very noticeable and had to be fixed correctly.

To see the amazing transformation to these four units at the end was awesome. Enjoy this Slide Show:

    Great Job. I really enjoy these types of projects. As long as they go well. Seems like some of the remodel projects can turn into nightmares. I did some work on a log home build in the 80’s about 10 yrs ago…… wow, lets just say, it could have gone more smoothly. Looks like that one went pretty well! Dave
