Kevin what a great transformation. Now you're almost ready to flip it and start on another one!

We can be confident that we know who the money guy is around here. I understand he uses high quality steaks as chum--but can't figure out why he never catches anything. Hasn't figured out what that stick with the string wound up on that round thing is for. :-)


Have a great day of boating

GFC - not sure I'm ready to sell - it would have be a really great offer. We got really lucky when we found it & replacement would take some effort. Also not looking to take on as big of a project again. I say that but if the numbers worked out it might change my mind. Look at the listings at least once a week just in case.

Have learned a lot of things along the way but I'm glad to be at this end of the renovation. It has been a long road.

Here are some more pictures are promised. Let me start by saying my photography skills could be better. Taking pictures in a small room is not easy. Pictures don't do the bathroom justice. Might help if i used a real camera instead of my phone. Bathroom came out amazing. Nicest room in the house for now.

Took advantage of the nice November weather & was able to get some much over do outside painting done. Feels really great to finally be able to wrap up some of the projects.



3 years ago this was what it looked like.

Nice work. I especially find that people who have vision to see things before work gets started are a very special breed. There is no way that I would have tackled a project like this.

Been working on wrapping up as many interior projects as possible before the weather gets nice. It is looking more like a real house. Hard wood floors are completed. 5 bedrooms completed. The east end of the upstairs was one big room 24' x 24' with a patio door in the center when we bought house. We turned it into 2 bedrooms 12' x 24' & removed patio door & added windows.

Whole house is completely trimmed out. We scored enough free 4" oak base to do all but 1 bedroom. Came out great. Amazing the difference it makes. Even put up curtains. Pictures don't look all that different but lots of little details & touch ups have been done.

Interior work is almost complete. Only thing left do to is redo utility room & upstairs bathroom but those will wait until fall. We have plenty of outside projects to catch up on as the last 4 years have been spent on the house. Plenty of trees to clean up.
On a positive note we will not run out of fire wood for a long time if ever.

YOWZERS, looking at that leaning tree I'd say that light pole is in serious jeopardy. roflmao

The pics are great. You must be very proud and happy with the results of your labors.

Where and how did you score the free oak?

My other brother & his wife bought a new house that was fully trimmed out with stained 4" oak trim thru out. She didn't like the looked of stained oak & wanted painted white trim. Also didn't like that you could see the grain on the oak if you painted it. Worked out great for us. They also tore all the 4" casing off all the windows. We were able to trim the entire house for $50 dollars out of pocket & have very nice trim work.

When we bought the house there was this old crappy shed & from day 1 we planned to get rid of. Unfortunately there was always other things to do & the next thing you know 4 years have gone by.
