Well, according to the TV Guide this is the season 3 finale. Thankfully, A&E decided to showcase the New Haven Boys and not Assmondo. I really do not need to puke in my mouth watching TV and that is the reaction I am starting to get watching the San Antonio episodes. The New Haven Boys, while still playing stupid jokes on each other, do tend to treat this as a business and have some professionalism about them. The pace of the episode was nice and laidback. Still when watching the episode the signage for Paul and Than's business looks so cheap I do wonder if it is a set. Anyway, the company has 2 3 family units located on Elm Street, which I get the impression is quite close to Yale. The properties were purchase in 2004 and 2005 and are on opposite sides of the side facing each other. They have been using the properties as rentals and tenants have vacated both properties leaving one unit empty in each property. They decide to renovate the apartments and the exteriors and then sell the entire house. Since there are 2 properties JD and Paul decide to make it a competition as to who can finish first. It's JD and Jeremy vs Paul and Than. JD & Jeremy get the Blue house and Paul and Than get the Yellow house.
Blue house Stats:
purchased for $170,000 in 2005
3,552 sq ft
3rd floor vacant - 2 bedroom 1 bath unit
$18,000 renovations done when property purchased
time: 21 days
Yellow house Stats:
purchased for $187,500 in 2004
3,800 sq ft
2nd floor vacant - 2 bedroom 1 bath (plan to convert front parlour to extra bedroom)
$25,000 renovatons done when property purchased
budget $30,000 (entire front porch rotten needs to be replaced)
time: 21 days
The main gist of the episode is the competition and that JD and Jeremy have to suffer several pranks by Paul and Than who try to sabatage their progress by paying a neighbour to complain about the trucks blocking his driveway and shuting down work for half a day and later, having the contracter put the supplies on a truck, driving it to the business office, giving the keys to the truck to Than and Paul and Than hiding the truck somewhere in New Haven. Even with all that JD and Jeremy finish the build first.
There are quite a few eye candy moments with Jeremy taking his shirt off and putting in a toilet, and later all the boys going water skiing and seeing all of them with their shirts off.
Final Blue House Stats:
total investment: $210,500
asking price: $314,000
potential profit: $87,800
Final Yellow House Stats:
total investment: $244,075
asking price: $324,960
potential profit: $64,580
Again, it was smart of A&E to end this season with the New Haven Boys as the feel of the episode was uplifting compared to the utter disgust I usually feel after watching a San Antonio episode.
