Wait so, they demolished the house with the black mold, and built you a new one?!

Wow. I keep looking at these pictures and I cannot BELIEVE how bad that mold is, and I’ve seen some really bad construction defect cases…. I can’t wait to see the results!

WoW! What a big job! Did you have to demolish the house and rebuild? That place was covered in mold! I’m astounded you got it done so fast!

Congratulations,By The Way…that has to be one of the biggest labors of love and hardest undertakings I’ve ever seen. Good for you.

I remember you mentioning this in another thread but O.M.G. I didn’t realize it was that bad. I’ve seen houses in bad shape but nothing like this.

Holy cow!!! That’s probably the biggest house disaster I’ve ever seen! How much were you able to save from the old home? It looks like you’d basically have to rebuild, at the very least gut the place.

@Eva Peron: We did not demolish the home.
@Minutiae: We did gut the entire thing. We saved nothing but the refridgerator which didn’t have any rust damage to it.
I’m waiting for the other photos to upload so don’t worry. I promise I’ll finish. It was an absolute mess when we got it but it has turned into something I cannot even believe.
@ItWasntMe:Thank you! There have definitely been some fights and some tears and some thoughts of just selling it mid renovation but it has turned out stunning.
ETA: Also, this is how we found the house even before we started demoing. Everything on the floor is from it falling down because it was so wet.

Oh. my. god. My jaw is literally hanging open from those pictures. You would never expect a house that looks to tidy from the outside to look like that on the inside!
Gut reno is an interesting process. My parents bought a house when I was 7 for $19,000 and spent 10 years remodeling it. They tore out every single wall in the house and started from the studs.
I can’t wait to see the afters!
