has since been changed!
We had an inspection completed just for the fireplace to see what the damages would cost to fix. Let's just state that the amount was monumental! I was complete shocked at the cost, could be worse but definitely didn't help my case. See I wanted to get this fixed by the end of summer; however, Ryan wasn't so keen on the idea. The high price tag meant he was going to win....but not for long! :)
Instead of fixing it, we compromised by boarding up the fireplace to allow future buyers to have a fireplace but allow us to utilize the wall space by mounting our television and having storage options through a nifty media center. The price was cut in half and we signed the paperwork that day! I'm excited to get put on the project list and have our living room transformed!!
