new house oh yes a little bit of a disaster right now actually not really even a house anymore barely and I wouldn’t even call it a new house this thing was built in 1927 and there is a lot to be done so of course he decided to make a series out of it the best part though is that Lowe’s is gonna be helping us out by sponsoring the series and helping us put all this back together it’s a match made and DIY habit and we need all the help we can get especially with the sky out even talking about they know what I’m talking about together we’re gonna be taking this house to a whole other level and

and you even carried me over the threshold and here you are we’ve got the living room that goes right into the dining room these are outside lights what are you thinking about this kitchen you need a new gas range with the hood white cabinets with a farmhouse what is underneath this because there’s no reason to have a carpet in the kitchen other than hiding yeah hiding oh yeah there’s no air conditioning so the bathroom is struggling where great this is the bedroom over here mom I need an exterminator also and coming in here this is the second bedroom gotta get that fixed we also need the fireplace to be realized these windows got to be replaced because these are from 1927 check out this backyard this is the deck let’s see what is underneath here I haven’t even looked yet oh we got

I’d let him drive the machine that was pretty much tear the rest of this house up all right I’m not sure whether or not the power is hooked up on this one kidding this is the insulation that they used back in the 20s when they are building this house oh this is a t-shirt in clothing from a murder [Music] Wow it all makes sense they buried them in the cold chamber the clothes they stuck in the walls
