Your project will pay good dividends in the future.

Do you mind me asking how much it cost to move the house?

If I could offer a piece of advice, get the underside (and anything else you can) sprayed with foam. Will go a long way towards keeping out bugs and drafts in the winter. Will make it quieter too.

Yes sir that's the plan after we live a few years in it and get some savings we will most likely build a new house somewhere or move into one of the larger houses my grandfather has already out there. Then rent this one out hopefully. Who knows we might not want to leave and just add on to this one in the future.
To have the house and shed moved took them around 3 days and The cost was around 5k for both that's including all permits and paperwork for moving though the city and stuff like that. I have been told each city or county is different and can cost more or less depending on where you coming from and moving to.

On the foam part I might put that insulated board you see in the shed underneath then foam around that and any other areas.

That's about what I was quoted when thinking of moving and renovating a house to be a rental.

On another house I renovated, I also cut the styro board (and bats) and put between the studs (not underside). I'm not sure the styro provided much insulation - maybe somewhat of a moisture barrier though.

I replaced the weighted windows with Anderson windows which have good curb appeal but in retrospect I think I could have gone with less costly windows. Those old houses don't lend themselves to energy efficiency, but are small and can be economically cooled and heated.

Keep posting progress pics - reminds me of some of my trials!

Texas flip and move 2cool style

I put rolls of insulation between the studs when siding was ripped off to be replaced. There is already insulation in the attic so I'm good there. But I will for sure put something underneath at some point.
The Windows that are in the house now are the old weighted ones most of them are broke or won't even go up or have cracks in the glass so they got to go. I really want to start that project but I know right now I don't have the workforce and time to tackle that. so I'm going to move to something simple until I can knock it out real fast. I'll keep the pics coming. Might not have much from this upcoming weekend most likely going to pressure wash loose paint woooohooo tons of fun lol probably won't see to much of a difference. But if there is I'll post some pics.

You will miss that "rumbley-rumbley -THUMP" from a weight cord breaking with those weighted windows!

Don't throw away those old windows. They sell for a fair amount of change at flea markets and antique stores. Many people use them to make a greenhouse as well.

I most likely won't hear them since they will be removed and replaced before I move in.

Looking good so far. I would figure out some ventilation for your skirting if I was you to get some air flow. I don't know how many homes I have looked at that have issues with the floor/subfloor rotting out due to a lack of ventilation.

+1 on venting skirting-with screening to keep unwanted tenants out.
