Okay so we worked on the dining room.

I chipped way bad plaster, spackled sanded and painted. Installed chair rail which is a pain in the ass because no floor is level, corner square etc.... But, it's avg height is 35.75" around the room.

I went to install picture frame wainscoting and realized it was going to take nearly 120ft of trim.... And at a minimum of $1/ft, we decided to wait because
My cell phone broke yesterday so that comes first and vacation at the end of the month.

Anyway, Here's a quick picture.

Before, Sort of.

The Howe Casing I used as chair rail because of the large trim thought out the room.

installed and primer the bottom...

NOTE: These Photos are before DETAIL Painting and touch ups!!!!

I'll get photos tonight when my wife's friends leave.

But, those photos are before the detail painting, And all the trim hadn't been painted yet either...

Looks much better now.

Not too bad for my first time! Took a little while, But I learned!

I'm so horrible with forgetting about this thread....

So Finished the Dinning room, finished the kitchen and a couple of other rooms.

New HVAC installed
New Water Heater installed

Been planning on selling, found a house i REALLY REALLY REALLY want, did I mention how much I want it? lol...

So I hired a painter to finish up paint in 3 or so rooms and plaster repair in another 3 or so rooms. I told my realtor I plan on listing by end of this month, july.

I know their goodman units, but their brand new and have 10 year warranties.

Stained my fence and added LED post caps. Still need to cut some boards for the bottom trim and a few other spots.

Hung a new chandi in the finished dinning room...

A bad panorama with my sell phone of the dinning room. (Still gotta change out the switch)

Again a horrible panorama of the living room. It's not that dark but since I started the photo and the left window it locked the Light amount all the way over.

Cleaned out the front beds and put down white marble rock with various brush.
Also built that small fence to block the uglyness behind it. I'll stain it here soon now that it's dried out,

Here is how it looks now that the monkey grass has grown up and all... As you can see a couple of the bush's I planted died... I think from wind burn on the trailor ride home...
And my big 6'5" 225lb ass without a shirt... The DHL guy was taller than me!

BEFORE I cut the posts down and stained the fence, I had a company come and remove 3 tree's that were pretty dead and near the house... So that cleaned up the side yard....
The workers spotted the cameras!


I'll get more pics up this week. The painter starts july 7th.

I'm currently putting up bead board and trim in another room to cover up some damage to the wallpaper thats too much of a hassle to remove. It'll look 100x better anyway with the 2ft tall bead board and chair rail/trim....
