Duplex almost finished! - Video Update

8 Replies

I am so close to finishing up the last unit on my second duplex.  After this unit, I am promising myself I won't spend so much time doing the actual labor myself.  Sometimes I feel that just getting a regular job and then investing on the side would be smarter than trying to save money by doing all the work myself.  Then again, I wouldn't trade the knowledge I have gained form doing all the hands on labor for anything!

Love the video blog @Kyle Grimm 2 quick things, 1) what camera are you using, pretty good quality, second have you thought about a steady camera mount? HUGE help in keeping your videos stable and increasing quality.

Just a thought, best of luck!

@Zachary Lamb Thanks!  So I am actually just using my Iphone 6.  I would love to get into making higher quality videos.  It's kind of my secret passion.  If I continue to make videos I will definitely think about getting some better equipment!

fairly inexpensive to be honest, I got a tripod on amazon for 20 buck u can get a really good boom microphone for around 100, lighting is the real kicker but you can get some good starter kits for around 50-100$ no expert but if you need some links to products ive bought send me a PM

Great job on your project! Knowledge is everything. I picked up a tidbit. Thanks for the video.

Great video. I'll be looking forward to following your YouTube channel.

I just subscribed to your channel.  Keep the updates coming....

Im looking into costs for building two duplexes on some property I have.  All of them will be 2 bedrooms and 1 batch.  If there is a huge cost saving i might build one 4 plex.  

What size and type of duplexes are you building?  Are you building them to sell or keep? 

Thanks @H D. Leon and @Nick McDonald

@Shawn Scheinoha I will try to upload fairly regularly.  I need to make sure I always have a project going!  My duplex is about 1400sqft total so 700 something a side.  2 bed 1 bath with a full basement half finished.  They are all brick and very well built.  I didn't actually build them I am just renovating them.  I plan to keep them as long as it makes sense!

Uploading another video shortly!  She's almost done!
