My first weekend with this house I took as a four day weekend to do some work (fri-mon), here are some pics showing how rough it is and some of the things we did.
To sum it up (that I can remember)
- I have a new roof
- we (my father and I) built a concrete canal type thing on the side of the house to prevent water from coming into the basement (had slight leakage issues)
- New front door
- scraped the **** out of some walls, did spackling, prepped for paint etc
- fixed some of the ghetto patches in the textured ceiling
- tore down some things that needed to be taken down
Piles of shingles and the best pos car I've ever owned:
Dad making door holes:
New door (put the same storm door back on and needs cleaned up yet):
Tearing down some paneling to find out what was behind it:
These people liked nailing things everywhere:
Upstairs bedroom has potential:
I have a LOT of work to look forward to,
and the Home Depots in my hood will be seeing a lot of me.
