We've had my husband's grandparents' old house inspected. Everything pretty much needs ripping out, which I suspected, from the roof all the way down to the subfloor. The house, we found out, was built in 1946 & has stone walls -- right now, the outside walls are the only things that aren't gonna have to be replaced. The roof is over 20 years old, the floors under the bathroom & kitchen are collapsing, the plumbing & electrical are ancient so we're looking at a whole-house renovation.
That said, here's my question -- is there a checklist out there that gives you a list of what needs to be done & in what order? For instance, should we rip the roof off first or tear out the interior walls first? That sort of thing. :confused:
We just want to make sure everything gets done in the proper order so we don't have some costly mistakes down the line. We're already looking at roughly $40,000 just to update the basics (new roof, new walls, new subfloors & floors, windows, electrical, plumbing, back porch, etc).
Thanks again for your advice!
