Welcome, Thanks for visiting our site!
We love having this opportunity to take a house that is over was built in 1902 and it has an addition that gives us roughly 3092 sq feet of livable space right now anyway, there is so much space in the attic and all over that they didn't even count! We will make many structural changes to this house and Automate it with the lastest and greatest technology products and appliciances.
- Hydronic Heat upgrades, there are old cast iron radiators and they suffered damage from the freezing pipes with water in them. We started replacing the iron pipes with PEX and will be posting videos for you do it yourselfers, so stay tuned and come and visit the blog and the Ripon Project Website.
- Plumbing upgrades, these pipes were also rusted and cracked from the elements and the freeze from the 3 Winters it sat unoccupied. We have replaced some of the plumbing just get the water flowing on the first floor.
- Kitchen, replace and upgrades to furnishings, plumbing, electricity, lighting and Smart Appliances that can be accessed through Apps on your phone, tablet or PC.
- Floors, the floors are mostly hardwood and just refinishing, the kitchen floor is the worst and the wood could not be used due to the water damage from the bursting radiators. We are going to put Maple Hardwood flooring and video tape the whole process!
