Restoration in Indianapolis

Postby BAZ_MCM » Sat Sep 20, 2008 6:03 am

Good day;

Been lurking for months, absorbing a ton of great info from you all. Thanks. We're days away from closing on our Indy MCM. I've started a blog cataloging the purchase and upcoming renovation. I will have tons of questions once we start the real work. Please check out the blog, get a look at our canvas and let me me know what you think.

Can you tell me where the first two pictures were taken in the Denver blog post? They look a little like the lost "House that Home Built" homes in Denver. Unlike the ones in KC, Denver may have built them without garages.

I wrote about the ones here in Kansas City.

Welcome from another MCM fan and owner in Indianapolis. Your house looks great. On what side of town is it? We're on the northwest side.

We closed today! Within minutes of signing we were at the house ripping up carpet. Got it all up in 3.5 hrs. Not bad for a two-person husband/wife team. We found hardwood but not easily salvaged.

Pictures here: http://atomicindy.blogspot.com/2008/09/ ... -this.html

Cheers,

Congrats! :)

Its been two years for me since I signed my papers and I am still tearing things up.

You should have seen the bright green "astro turf" shag carpet my house had before I ripped it out. It made my eyes hurt.

Don't worry about your floors. You will be surprised at how they look after refinishing them.

Just make sure to refinish before your stuff is in the house to catch all the dust!

When I bought the last house there were square cut outs on the hardwoods where they installed new slab piers (It's a Houston gumbo soil thing). So when I had the hardwoods refinished the guy "rewove" new pieces of solid oak in with the existing and refinished it all at once. There is no way to find the spots at all. If you have some trouble spots anyone that handles refinishing and repairs should be able to tackle it no problem.

Welcome! Great to see more Indy area people. My wife and I live in Noblesville, links to older pics of our home are floating around here.

Love the idea of an Indy club/support group.

Congrats on the new home!
Enjoyed reading your blog. Don't give up on the floor as others have posted.
Trouble spots may blend in.
maybe test a small area with a palm sander...
And hopefully you will not forget those 'flippers'. They need training!

Oh, the bushes you asked about on your blog look like cedar. We have one
just like that. But it is original and 40 yrs old. About the same size as the ones
you posted.

Baz,

Your enthusiasm is great! I have a question about the fireplace though. Did you paint it gray? That stone looks like it would be great in its natural state. Is there more of it used on the exterior?
