Thanks for all the compliments.
To answer a couple of questions:
Scott, The rehab took about 9 weeks start to finish. This being our first remodel, it took us a while to get some contractors on board. I also did some of the work myself...I thought the interior painting and punchlist would never end! All-in-all, I think we could have completed the project a couple of weeks faster if we had our ducks in a row.
K, The flooring in the kitchen was a 3/8" solid bamboo flooring. The tile is all porcelain tile and glass mosaic tile that was bought from the Home Depot.
Scott/Corey, The house was a cash offer for a bank foreclosure that we purchased off the MLS.
Steve, I am not aware of a requirement to have egress windows in a finished basement, unless it is a bedroom in the basement. Also, this basement was originally finished when the house was first built back in 78. I believe this may have been grandfathered-in, but I'm not sure...Nothing was brought up at the inspection.
