This Old House

Our photo collection of rebuilding a 1954 vintage brick home. Not content with merely rebuilding one house after Katrina, Weifang convinced Ron to rebuild another house several years later. These photos tell the story. After a year’s hard work, we used this house as a rental property.

Renovations included cleaning and repainting the main floor, gutting and rebuilding the kitchen and main bath, floor repairs and refinishing of the original oak flooring, and updating all electrical wiring. In the finished basement, we gutted the existing drywall and most of the existing framing, and treated for running mold. Following that we installed a barrier French drain waterproofing system, replaced the corroded main sewage drain pipe, re-framed and installed new drywall. We laid ceramic tile throughout the basement flooring and rebuilt the basement bath, built a laundry area, and finished with new doors and wood trim.

In the years since we’ve done some additional minor interior and exterior work as needed including painting the exterior trim white.
