This project was purchased in a private sale. The property is in poor condition. Ampez will be doing the standard remodel which will include replacing the roof and older wood frame windows as well as updating the interior. The house is located in what is known as the Mayfair district of Fresno. This is a county island within the city of Fresno. While the Mayfair District is an older part of Fresno, the neighborhoods are well kept and desirable.

Property Updates & Photos (Updates/Photos Added Routinely)
4/15/2015 - The first order of business is to restore power to the residence. Due to vandalism the electric meter has been damaged. We will be upgrading the electric panel.
4/17/2015 - We want the floor plan to be more open. To achieve this the wall between the dining room and kitchen will be removed. The kitchen will feel bigger and there will be better flow.
4/18/2015 - The roof will be a complete tear off with new plywood and composition laid.
4/19/2015 - The back bathroom is being taken out to be enlarged. The cabinets are being removed for new ones.

4/22/2015 - In the older homes with outdated and deteriorating bathrooms we tear out the shower and replace the plumbing and create a new modern looking bathroom.
4/24/2015 - Safety and quality are top priority. We never cut corners. The furnace works, but has a cracked heat exchanger. This can be dangerous because it has the potential of carbon monoxide leaking into the attic. Therefore we replaced the furnace.

6/2/2015 - Kitchen cabinets and countertops are installed. We are using an oversized porcelain tile that looks very much like granite.
6/5/2015 - Bathroom vanities are installed with countertops
6/10/2015 - Finishing the carpentry. Crown molding in the big room in the back and baseboards throughout the house. Here you can also see the new textured ceiling.
6/14/2015 - Unfortunately, when we purchased the house the condensing unit was stolen. We replaced the unit and because the house is vacant we put the unit in a cage for extra security.
All Done! We have an accepted offer on the house. Before and after pictures follow.
