This is what the house looked like when we purchased it. The giant trees were the first to go! It came complete with nasty carpet inside that I can't begin to describe the smell of, mold from a roof leak, termites and other creepy crawling critters. After chopping down the overgrown trees and bushes, we had the carpet taken out (which helped with the smell) and hired someone to clean the HVAC and mold. The yard was a jungle in need of a good cutting. Thankfully my husband loves yard work!
