Covered in poop, literally

A few years ago we bought a rental property that got completely abused by the renters who were living in it. After they left, large amounts of cockroaches and their poo were discovered, along with mildew, mold and all kinds of other damages. I wouldn't step foot in that place so I never got the luxury of seeing the disgusting mess but Trey took a few pictures of some in-between fixes. We basically had the whole place gutted and it now looks like a brand new house on the inside. Here's a before picture of the outside...
And here's an after picture after ripping out those ugly trees...
Here's an in-between shot of busting out the gross shower...
And after...
I wish Trey would've taken a picture sooner but this is the kitchen minus the cockroach poop cupboards and mildew floors...
And after...
This was not planned to be a fixer upper house but thanks to the crappy renters and the other 4 families living in there with them it turned into one. Some people.

Wow I love the end product. The bathroom tile and backsplash in the kitchen look awesome! Thats so gross though that they literally destroyed that house... eww how can people live like that?

Ewww, we know about crappy renters but they weren't THAT crappy. Yikes. And how long ago did you guys buy it and was Thayne the listing agent? I swear we looked at that when we were looking at rental properties!!

Ok, those renters sound so amazingly stupid! Who wants to live like that? I'm so sorry you had to deal with that - but the end product is beautiful! Isn't it nice to have a handy husband?

Looks great! Boo to sucky renters. The nerve.

I am so proud of you Trey. it is amazing. I saw this crappy stage and I just couldn't see it cleaned up. This is unbelievable. So much work paid off didn't it. After three times more than you thought it would cost and finding more and more things to fix and repair, hopefully the stress can go down a little. Looks great.

It looks sooo good!! Too bad you don't have any pictures of the poo though :) Good job on all your hard work! What a pain!! I bet Trey's glad it's all over!
