HaybusaMadman - He didn't FLIP the house; they're living in it. No investors involved, no making money until he wants to move. You know you really can't make a lot of money on FLIPS unless you use better quality materials in it. It will just fall apart after awhile. I've seen it happen, watched the flip as it progressed (?) and watched low lifes move in. It was foreclosed within 2 yrs and now it's up for grabs again. This is of course, after a wall and floor had to be replaced in the master bedroom, a living room floor had to be replaced and nothing was done for stains or updated appliances, sinks, bathtubs or toilets. The flippers were sloppy. But they made money off the poor fool. That is what I'd call dishonest, not common sense.

Nice to save a grand old house. I'd've gone with historic preservation rather than updating, but that's just me. You must've found a very good bank to front you the money...or you're a more-successful-than-average musician, or have some major collateral, or have one heckuva cosigner.

What an absolutely beautiful home; I am so jealous!!  I love to do small rehab projects but my dream is to get my hands on a lovely old home like this.  I want to recreate one of those big old bedrooms down to the wonderful, ornate furnishings.  Congratulations.

Have 1890 Eastlake Victorian in Palestine, Tx. we started saving in 2001....takes lots of money and patience !  10 years and far from done :(

Vinyl siding?  Really?  No better way to allow water infiltration to do unseen damage to the structure.

Love the house, my husband and I have a 1865 old victorian and have done a lot of work on it.  I just love old houses and wish more people would restore them rather than buldoze them down.  Congrats on your beautiful home...

My congratulations. Too often houses in your start condition are just buldozed down for the land. To see what you have done is remarkable.
