Looks great! I don't know anything about picture panel fencing but yours looks good so far. We have moved all of our projects inside now that the weather has changed. Still need to cut the roses back. I think that is the last chore before winter. We are focusing on insulating the attic.

I still can't believe you this home for just $100k! Great price for such a beautiful home. I'm constantly looking at your updates. What brand or type of paint r u using and how much did it cost u? Did u need to scrap your walls? If so, how did you do it?

We are in the proccess of trying to prep the walls.

We have sanded the walls with a 150grit sander lightly to get rid of any
sticklers or prickly globs of paint that we noticed on the walls.

For Cracks I chipped the paint away an inch on both sides of the crack
down to the plaster, and scraped at the crack and spackled the area
and sanded smooth. Used some tape on areas that needed it.
(Should have on all cracks but too late)

For spots that were dipped or raised I tried sanding down,
and for the dips filling it with spackle and sanding it down smooth.

We are going to put the primer up this week. Bought 5 Gallons of
KILLZ2 Premium Latex primer. Cost $78 for the 5 Gallon bucket.

I'm not too worried about the crown moulding as I plan to replace it when I am able to scavenge together a few hundred to re-do it.

As far as Final Paint, Were going to use Ultra Premium... Whatever Lowes carries. So I don't remember off the top of my head. It's $127 for a 5 Gallon bucket.

It's stretching price wise, While we don't want the best, we don't want to cheap out too much. Want a decent finish, Not expecting anything perfect...
Its an older home and still has slight waves in the walls etc... Plaster....

I'm fighting the crowds tomm for early black friday deals.
60" LED Smart TV. The Wife said we needed a tv and gave a budget
so I'm excited and running with it!

lol

I even took the liberty to tape it out over the fireplace to see how it will look.



I would really like to do some work to the fireplace.

But we will have to see. I want to replace the black tiles
with stacked stone of some type. I'd also like to extend that stacked stone
to the rest of the fireplace where it sticks out from the Main back wall with the windows.
And some type of new slab where the black tiles are on the floor.

We don't use the fire place, But still. It's our first room we are re-doing
and even though on a budget I would really like to make it look awesome.

There was a 60" Sharp Aquos LC60E69U 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV for $688 at Sears. Not a smart TV, but you could save some major scratch by adding a smart TV adapater (Roku, Boxee, NeoTV, AppleTV, whatever) to this one.

Might still be available. And you wouldn't have to mad-rush on BF morning.

Yeah but... it's a Vizio. :\

Good luck. Lots of single people will be camping out instead of spending time with their family. I'd certainly expect a line from what I've been reading on that deal.

lol, Vizio is changing their game.
Some reviews from some hardcore critics are comparing it to the big boys double
their price.
It's not a full aray led but for the price, it's not going to get any better.

Anyway, It won't matter in a few years we will be watching OLED and damn I can't wait! Excited.

I don't think I ever posted this. My wife (Fiance at the time) took this photo of me while I was on the roof inspecting the fireplace for a top/cap

this was about a year ago.

Well... We've done alot of work on the living room.

I'll post photos when I get off work in the morning.

However, We have found a home we like, Well... LOVE.
We're going to do a walk through friday, and decide if we want to
move forward with selling our current home for this other one.
I'll really have to get working on the projects and tidy up the place getting it ready for sale by the end of the month.

I really pray that everything works out and we are able to get this other house.

Updates to come

No harness...I am calling OSHA...!!!!

Just kidding.

Crown looks like it might need to be re-done and have some of those upper course re-pointed.

100k great deal. I would have bought it. I like the farmers sink. I haven't seen one of those in years. My grandparents had a big white cast iron farmers sink in there kitchen back in the day. They had a old Victorian.

So I left my old 2nd job for a new one and working a lot more.
100 hours last week, And by friday at 7pm yesterday I worked 87 hours
between Both my jobs.

If it would stop raining I could finish some stuff.

I havn't touched the fence.
I cut the monkey grass and trimmed some stuff around the yard
since it's about to start growing.

We went to lowes ( Wife and I ) to look at some stuff.
I don't want to do mulch again this year. It's a pain, A mess, Doesn't look
all that great and has to be replaced every year.
So I'm thinking about throwing down some rocks.

We both liked the marbel rock, it's white/bright and would be a large contrast against the house but not too much since the footing/foundation is light rock....

Wanting to tear apart the front walkways, and do Stamped concrete.
Or Maybe go back and do flat river rocks... just re-do it. It's old and all breaking apart.

I'll snap some photos.
