3/1.5 in Bethany

I closed on this really nice 3/1.5 in Bethany on Thursday.  Of course, with the temperatures hitting 100+, not to mention the heat index, installing air conditioning was my number one priority.  In fact, the property was virtually unworkable without so on Friday the installers came and the project began.

I should note that the house in the background is not the one I bought, mine is to camera left. This house is,
however, representative of the neighborhood.

It took all day to cool to the 80's, at which point I started to remove the existing carpeting.  Nothing much to show yet but stay tuned for pictures as this progresses.

Just a quick update, plans are going forward for the next house.  If all the paperwork gets in timely, we'll close on Thursday and I'll post pictures.  In the meanwhile, I've been lining up contractors and pre-scheduling the work to be done.  Hoping for a September availability but if nothing else, I've learned that the time frames are unpredictable.

In my time "off" I've been doing some much needed work on my own house, the yard thanks me but I am looking forward to the next renovation, it's just fun to see a finished house emerge from a sometimes rough beginning.
