My Naked House

My Naked House

Here are some pictures I just snapped in the last hour of my naked house.

OK, so it's not totally naked. The rest of the stucco should be gone by the end of the week.

Here are some shots of the inside now that it's "cleaned up".

The guys (my contractor and his men) hope to have it clean to the point tomorrow that the electrician can come in and wire and that the plumber can come in and get things ready so they can do some framing next week.

If I had a dollar for everyone that has said "I think I'd prefer a fire" then I wouldn't need to win the powerball drawing tonight. That is my plan by the way... win the powerball, buy two first class motor homes, hire a tutor for the kids, and the whole entourage and I will just cruse the USA for the next couple of years.

Ps My house fits right in with the other 3 to 5 thousand homes that sit in the Mouse River Valley portion of Minot. Note the yard in the first two pictures... everything is dead on what was a very well groomed yard just 3 months ago. This is what the entire valley looks like now.

Mike, the progress is exciting but it seems so slow. One of my neighbors is way ahead of me and it gives me hope as well as disappointment that I am so far behind him. I have a good contractor (and they are in high demand as you can imagine) but his spiritual beliefs only have he and his crew on the job 3 days a week. The rest of the week they do "missionary" work and build meeting halls. I do what I can myself but it's really hard when you have lots of other work plus I'm studying for my Brokers license as well.

HI BOB!  No words - just speechless again.  Do you get any say in the repairs and fix up or is it based on whatever the insurance pays for?  When is your Broker test?  Wishing you all the best!

Gabrielle, The insurance and the SBA loan are strictly for repair and do not even allow for improvement, which I think sucks. I would love to enclose the area that is now the carport but that is forbidden. I would also like to do some extensive landscaping to help with possible future flooding but the amount allowed for that is less then $3,000. What can you do with that other then repair what had washed away?

Nick, the out pouring of help has been nothing short of phenomenal. This disaster has been dwarfed buy the many blessings shown us by others. It makes me very eager to give back as soon as we can.
