It’s week 19 after we finally got our OK from the city and we’re wrapping up our latest project at 2731 Lyons on the east side. It should be on the market in a couple of weeks, unless we sell it first. The last touches will be carpet and landscaping which will be installed this […]
It’s week 16 after a long wait for permits from the city and we’re finally hitting the home stretch at 2731 Lyons.

After a short delay waiting on an inspection we finally got the go ahead on our Sheetrock and were able to complete the tape, float and texture at our rehab project at 2731 Lyons. Although this is a big accomplishment I didn’t take any photos as it would look about the same. This week we should start to see […]
It’s been a long wait, but we’re getting to the point where we’ll be seeing our project at 2731 Lyons getting closer to the finish line. This week we finally got to Sheetrock after a series of additional delays. This is partially because the city is still struggling to keep up with the demands on […]
I missed my weekly update for 2731 Lyons last week because I was out of town, so we should have a lot of progress to report. Unfortunately we had a couple of delays so there’s not a lot to show. We had three issues that came up during the framing inspection. Two were minor, but one required […]
