Our kids love the family real estate business! We’re a local family-owned business that loves renovating houses and improving Louisville’s neighborhoods, and we took our kids by one of the houses we’re re-building to check on the workers’ progress and they were excited to play in the “beach” sand out back! 🙂 My wife Christina and I have three young kids – Ava, Alexander, and Alivia. They all love helping mommy and daddy work on houses, and with the shortage of skilled laborers these days, it’s important to show the next generation how valuable they can be working in the trades!
The two houses you see in this video were abandoned for years and needed completely gutted back to the studs and re-built. They took roughly five months to finish, but they are now gorgeous rental properties close to the University of Louisville and will be great long-term investments for us. Below is a picture of what they looked like before we started working on them.
If you’d like to see what the inside of these houses looked like during construction, check out this blog we did after the drywall, flooring, and doors were installed!
