The Fairview finish line.

This update is years in the future from the post about carpet.

We enjoyed so many fond memories in the Fairview house. Several holidays with friends and family, massive snowstorms that halted the city for days and constant home improvements.

Once, a raccoon moved in under the deck.

The house went from a cold dead hollow sad space to a warm home, filled with love.

The time had come to move on to the next project, to give another family the comforts and personality of Fairview.

We listed her for sale in the autumn of 2012.

We’ll definitely miss the house. We got our start as a family here. But now it’s someone else’s turn.

Final Total:

We purchased the house as a foreclosure for $25,000

Total cost of renovations were approximately $36,000

Sale price was $124,900

Profit: $63,900
