Nice glad ya like it. I took a year and did
1- laid 3/4" hickory hardwood down diagonal in the living room, 1 bed room, and hall. About 800 sq feet.
2-Tore out my wifes bathroom total gut. Installed a double tub with jets and heater, tiled the walls and made her some shelves for grandbaby pictures, tiled the floor diagonal, replaced the counter top 9 feet with double sinks built in lights, and added a shower.
3- Tiled the game room 1000 feet
4- New shingles 2 times in same year 56 squares. 1st time by myself then a big hail storm came along and insurance totaled it so the 2nd time I had a young stong kid come help me (poor kid liked to have died working with me)
5- Restained the house and caulked all open cracks and joints 200 tubes. We have a rock home/ cypress so there were some holes in the concrete and I just wanted to tighten it up.
6- Installed storm windows to all windows.
7- Installed new heavy guage tin to the 2 barns.
8- Refinished all the wood in the home. 4600sqft with only sheetrock is in the celings. A logger built the home in the 70's and he cut, finished, and used a different wood in every room in the home. Kitchen, hall, and living room are all back walnut. Rest are ceder, hickory, maple, pecan, oak, and some more I forgot. He also used natural rock outa a stream before it was illegial. Told me he was cuting a track of timber and hauled one pickup truckload a time.
I am happy with mine as well I know I saved over 100k in labor.
