I'm a musician (classical pianist, electronic musician, and composer); and fir the last 5 years: landlord/fix whatever guy.
Boy have I a LOT to learn!!!!
I've been through complete gut jobs with professionals, I've done some plumbing and flooring, as well as sheetrocking, hard-core-painting, landscaping, and minor electrical work. The only thing I don't like is roofing...yipes.
I own three properties that I rent out (two 2-family homes NEXT to each other, and a single-family) and I'm managing my fiancées property as well. Way more work than I thought it would be.
One of my primary concerns is how to get a lot of these things done without ruining my hands. Not so easy...
Looking forward to reading/posting/interacting with you folks!
Good morning Istvan. I'm in the same boat, two 2fam (one side by side1952/one up-down1932) and a 3bdrm single fam. My list of projects go on and on and on . . . well, you know. This week I'm going to learn finish plaster.Trying to stay true to the building's history and not just skim with drywall. Been looking at all of the videos and articles on line to get some idea of technique. Trying to blend in with the original 1932 polished plaster over a mortar base - in the process I found moldy 1940s wallpaper under the paint on the exterior wall. There's two extra days of work!
