It took a few weeks to patch up the roof, and a few more weeks to fix the things I broke, but finally the construction of the roof was finished
This house was always going to be a fixer upper, and I knew that going in. It was in a great location, for a great price, but the structure itself was a total dump. It wasn’t like buying a house the way other people think of it, it was more like buying a car at the junkyard and then rebuilding it. I bought the place, and I knew it would take a few years before I could move into it for good. Were I a rich man, this would be a much easier problem to handle. With enough money I could just call a general contractor and tell them what I wanted done, and then pay them. I can’t do that, buying the place wiped me out financially, so the building and remodeling would have to be done by hand slowly, over time, as I could afford the materials. First I started with the roof, because I felt that a sturdy roof would help in the future stages of renovation, remodeling, and construction. It would be the only way I could really keep the rest of the construction materials dry and safe from the weather while I was working. It took a few weeks to patch up the roof, and a few more weeks to fix the things I broke, but finally the construction of the roof was finished. From there on out I followed the pattern of plotting out my next construction project, watching tons of Youtube tutorials to learn what I needed to know, and then buying the materials.
