Hello SLC rehabbers. We just bought our first investment property in Denver. Moving there at the end of the year to do a live-in Brrrr. Learning as much as we can through YouTube but I’d love some real life experience. Drywall, removing popcorn ceilings, flooring, anything! I’ve got a lot of heart but not a lot of skill and would love to help and learn. Thanks.

I might encourage you to look at volunteering with habitat for humanity or other similar organizations. I’ve seen them do tile, siding, roofs… pretty much everything. Also, the big box stores like Lowes and Home Depot usually have some kind of a class on a regular basis, you may check with your local store. I will tell you though, some jobs are cheaper to pay someone than to buy all the tools necessary.


Best of luck with the move and investment.
