bought this house last fall with the plan to remodel parts of it and update it's look into a more current color/style palete with the plan to sell in a few years and build a house I can retire in. started the first of the major jobs on Monday this week. tearing out the entry hardwood, living room carpet, dining room carpet and kitchen/laundry linoleum and replacing with 500sqft of tile and new carpet in the living room.
here's the progress so far. taking a little break today and will be at it hard until sunday afternoon..

That circular saw is such a prima donna, working its way into the pics. That must've been some tuff carpet!

Nice DIY, now you can spend all that money you saved in labor on something for the boat

no love for the boat yet..
had a couple of phone calls in the last few days and I now think my next 6 weeks are jam packed..

stepmom called and wants me to build 2 raised planter beds and install a lattice privacy screen where I took out a greenhouse for them last month.
sis called last night and wants to build a round raised planter bed where there currently resides a fire pit in her back yard, and wants to install a bubbler fountain inground next to the deck.
still have plans to build a 6x8 storage shed this spring for the lawn gear at my pad.

hope the weather stays crappy so I don't feel like i'm missing boating season, otherwise I think some of these projects are looking like september-ish.... :)
