We brought our house as a foreclosed house and did some work over the years but since we are putting it on the market we needed to finalize  ALOT! Mostly the bathrooms. Im sad that I can’t get to enjoy these remodels since we are moving, but I hope the next person LOVES it just as much as we do. We brought it for a STEAL and can’t wait to sell it to flip it!
