We are wrapping up the demolition on the Michigan Ave. house. We took some risks and did some extensive demolition. But, many times there is great potential that requires risk. That's what we have in mind for the future buyer of this great home - great potential.
To us, this home is now beaming with opportunities to be breathtaking, but to some it might look like a ruin. We're confident that by the end it will be breathtaking to all who tour it. We removed all wall and ceiling finish so that we can refinish these to perfection. We also removed all wall finish to make planned plumbing and electric upgrades quicker and easier.
We wouldn't recommend this on most projects, but we believe there is enough upside and potential in this home, that if we can knock the buyer off their feet and offer newly upgraded plumbing and electric, no buyer will be able to walk out without offering top dollar for this awesome property.
The layout of this house lends itself to easier replacement of plumbing. There is a first floor bathroom directly adjacent to the kitchen and a second floor bathroom directly above the kitchen/bathroom. So, all of the plumbing is in one area of the house.
We can't wait to begin to replace the internals and begin to put this masterpiece together!
