I just started a new project for a friend of ours. He and his wife own a small convenience store and they have 4 houses abutting the store property and one of them needs some repairs after the last renters moved out. At first I thought it might be fairly easy because I had renovated the home almost 8 years ago and the house has only had 2 renters since. Man was I mistaken!!!! The last renters had dogs. Not just dogs but big dogs. 6 big dogs which they kept either in a kennel outside or on cold nights and days they kept them locked in the kitchen. I had to pull the cabinets out, rip the paneling and drywall out and am now getting ready to prep for new drywall and cabinets. The whole house is a wreck and I think what I am going to do is throw you guys a couple of pictures and then post a couple more as the renovation progresses. It's been my experience that some renters are not good people. The property doesn't belong to them and beyond their rent they have no other obligations to keep the place in order. I have seen places that look like someone took a sledge hammer to the toilets, ceramic tile floors and anything else that could be broken but this time is one of those times when I would like to find the renters and give them some 2x4 Justice. I've taken a shower and still cannot get the smell of urine and thousands of cockroaches out of my system. Here's a couple of pic's of the kitchen walls.
