Now, a story about a model home that got destroyed by the spoiled family in it, and the man who had to keep the house together.
With all the hype surrounding the return of Arrested Development on Netflix, we’re all on the edge of our seats in anticipation. The Bluth’s house has sustained so many damages, so how much would it cost them to fix the model home? We’re going to use our Price Estimator to give you a glimpse of how much money it would cost to hire pros to fix up the Bluth model home in Sudden Valley.
When Mrs. Featherbottom needs to impress the children, she does it with grace and elegance. Often, she’s singing a song in her heart and translating common British phrases, but sometimes she tries too hard and thinks she can float from the second floor like Mary Poppins, only to ruin the carpet in the process.
What’s next? Finding the best carpet cleaner in the OC (don’t call it that). Not only is it extremely dangerous not to professionally clean the shards of glass from the carpet, but you’ll also want to clean up the possible blood stains. Here’s an estimated range of carpet cleaning jobs from our price estimator:
When you factor in the type of carpet, the location, and the mess, you’re looking about a $99 price tag for a professional cleaning. It’s a small price to pay to enjoy that new carpet smell and do this:
Do you have an actor in your family? I’m sure they’re nowhere as dedicated as Tobias Fünke, the Blue Man Group enthusiast. But with such enthusiasm comes the messy cleanup.
What do you do when you have blue paint all over your walls? Color matching and keeping consistent strokes are all pitfalls if not done correctly. Hiring a pro would be in the following range:
A small paint job covering only one or two walls would probably cost on the lower end, around $172. However, if you want to paint your whole kitchen (we suggest just sticking with blue), the average price will be around $369.
New Kitchen Countertop:
Leave it to Gob to ruin your counter before he can say “Steve Holt.” Did you really expect him to just twist the cap off? Why doesn’t he just use his $3,000 shirt to twist off the cap, C’MON!
You’re going to need to get a brand-new countertop, which can get costly depending on what material you want to use:
This pricing accounts for the pro purchasing the countertop, as opposed to you buying it yourself. A nice granite countertop is solid as a rock, but it can run you around $1000+, while a cheaper material can get as low as $221. Chip in for the nicer material, since you won’t want to burn the counter with the Cornballer.
Cheap construction is bad construction! When your house is merely a model home, you can’t expect the foundation to be flawless.
An issue like your floor caving in should be fixed immediately for the safety of your family (and for preventing cousins from kissing).
Installing a floor is a big job! A cave-in like this one at the Bluth home will probably cost more than $2,000 to fix. Looks like you’ll have to get rid of the Seaward.
Poor Michael. He’s just trying to be a good guy and save his family’s failing business. It doesn’t help when a snooping reporter comes around and breaks a window.
Luckily, due to the model home’s location, they don’t have to fix the window right away because they’re not vulnerable to break-ins.
But for the rest of us, a broken window is an emergency and should be fixed immediately. Leaving your home open to burglars is making a huge mistake. Here’s an estimate of replacing a window:
On average, a window installation will cost about $191 in the Orange County area. That’s like the same price as… what… 19 bananas?
Total Bluth home remodel: $3,842
$3,842 is a LOT of money for a model home, but pretty soon, it’ll be all worth it. With all the memories spent falling off chairs, slipping on vodka, and stashing your fugitive father in the attic, you can’t put a price tag on the one thing that’s got no choice but to keep them all together. And remember:
