Of course a lot of people have been to South Padre for Spring Break and no doubt some people have been there on holiday or just to go fishing. I got a place in Port Isabel within a half mile of the causeway leading over to the island. I just got this place because it was really cheap. In fact I was sort of wondering if it was going to be worth the effort required to fix it up. I figure that my risk is not all that great. I have to go to http://choosetexaspower.org and get the power hooked up, just like I was going to need the power hooked up at a rented place. I pretty much talked the guy into selling me this place for less than what a used truck would cost me. It is the only way that it made sense. However at the price that I paid it made a whole lot of sense.
The basic equation is relatively simple. I have to figure out how much I need to put in the place to make it a place where you can live. It needs a new roof first off and then the floor in the bathroom has to be replaced. I do not know what it is going to be in the range of costs. It is not like that is a thing that I have done, but I know a guy who can do it and I figure that I will be able to work out a deal with him. I will do some work for him and in return he will do this for me. It is not that simple, but then it is pretty close to that simple. All we have to do is figure out the terms and conditions.
