I'm going to start a new thread to follow along with the Grandma House Remodel. This house is in very good condition, but Grandma got a hold of a lot of wall paper and green carpet to decorate the house 20 or 30 years ago (possibly older than that). There's a new aluminum shingle roof for fire retardation, newer HVAC and water heater. But the cosmetics are stuck somewhere in the past.
The buyers are leaving their 2 story large family home in Poway and moving to this single story home that has a pool (I think it's enticement for grandkids) and a beautiful view to enjoy. I'm worried that they will take their remodel to their tastes too much. The reality is, when you are in your 70s, there's a big chance this house is going to have to be sold again in 10 years or less.
The listing photos are very carefully avoiding the amount of wallpaper in this house. The kitchen even has wall paper on the ceiling!!! It's going to be a huge job to get wallpaper off the walls. In fact, I told the new owners that they would need to hire a specialist that has the tools and knowledge to remove the wallpaper because my crew would pick away at it for weeks.
We will start work about August 15th and I will take a lot of before photos as we get in there
