DIY Transformation - Recovering Equity Through Sweat :) - B&A Pics


So that's what we had started there with the powerwashing, see how the brick looks, and we may revisit that, but we realized there's just too much on the plate right now, and the powerwasher that we have does it slowlllllllllllllllly. Could always rent a higher-powered gas one but thats $ + will do more damage to the brick....so we'll revisit after current projects are completed.

Looking good! Looking forward to pics of the wall/front patio progress.

Shame to let that nice S4 just sit there, let me know if you want me to come by and take it for a spin while you are busy.

Thanks! Please follow, would love to hear all comments, and hope to give some ideas to others.

LOL, yes, I love that car - except the for the dead alternator. Was towed yesterday to swap - pricey repair for this car - whole front end needs to be removed. Appreciate the offer!
