Shampoo and Booze Episode 11: Being Your Own General Contractor

Since we started buying houses, we have, by necessity, been our own general contractors. This means you deal with every detail on a renovation including who does what, budgets, colors, materials, hauling trash, even some demolition and physical labor, etc etc. If you're not willing to pay someone else to do it, you've got to just do it yourself. We do have limits as to what our construction skills afford, but that's when we make sure we have a professional ready and willing. So far this system has worked well for us and hopefully will continue to work for this next big project.

Yes, that's correct. We have been looking for a few months and we finally bought a second rental. We are very excited. Check out some photos below to see what we saw (lots of cool potential, nice view, solid bones). Also see how insane it is that people rent houses in our area in this condition. The horror, oh the horror!
