I was thinking of doing a rehab loan, with the following items included. I know some of these I may be able to handle myself, but I wanted to put them all in to get an idea of cost for all these items from some of the experts here.
This is for a 100 year old single family two story colonial in MA. The home is about 1350 sq feet. 7 rooms, 3 beds, 1 bath.
- add 1/2 bath on 1st floor - Scrape/Paint the house bright yellow (currently gray) - waterproof all fieldstone basement walls (650 sq ft basement) - add ground level 12 x 15 redwood deck, lighted w/ outside elec outlets - hot tub on the new deck - new asphalt driveway (single wide, about 12 x 40) - extend existing 12 x 30 garage by 20 feet back into yard. - hardwire electricity to garage - w/baseboard elec heat or wood stove. - replace bathroom floor w/ceramic time and install shower door enclosure (6 x 6 bathroom, small.) - re-seed and flatten/level lawn, remove razor tree (holley?), remove 4 ft chain link fence and giant bush in front of house. (Lawn is about 3000 sq feet. Fence is about 25 ft in length.) - Wall to wall carpet in living room (10 x 12). - baseboard heat w/thermo installed in unheated room. (10 x 12) - new gas dryer - new front and back storm doors - new gas stove - add garbage disposal - ceramic tile on kitchen floor (16 x 14) - reshingle roof of garage.
I am figuring around $25,000. I would hope a GC could handle the whole mess, and get it all done in a month in the spring/summer/fall. Thoughts?
