Home improvement!

Postby AliceElite » Sat Oct 01, 2016 2:03 pm

Sooooo I'm basically entirely renovating a trailer so I can have a place to live - I want to post some photos eventually but I'm on mobile.

Here is a list of what needs to get done:
Fox's bedroom
Master bedroom needs spackling and painting.
Kitchen cabinets need to be finished.
Living room needs to be spackled and painted.
The doors and windows need replacing.
Kitchen needs to get painted
The toilet needs new plumbing
The shower needs to be resealed.


Ughhh IT'S SO MUCH. What are your home improvement stories? Before/after photos?

pffft, that really sounds like a lot indeed. Just start somewhere, progress can come in small phases.
The home we live in is okay, the bathroom needs some stuff, but no money at the moment. And we can live with how it is now.

The master bedroom is spackled and needs a second coat of paint, and we've reassembled the cabinets. The goal is to have the master bedroom completely painted and moved in, and the spackling done in the living room by the end of the day. We got this!

Went to bed at 5:30 last night so I didn't get to finish what I wanted - we'll finish yesterday's goals today. We have most of our shit stored in the living room, so before we can clean/repair that space we need to finish the bedrooms and move them in.

HVAC guy coming to get our heater cleaned and turned on today, so we'll have heat!!

So true, ink! We've got heat now, we're doing the finishing touches in the master bedroom. It is so nice to be warm! (and to have smooth paint - 50° is a little cold and all my paint got thick.)

Thanks Cerro! Mostly how I work is to freak out really hard for 24 hours and then bust ass to move on. :P it's worked so far!

Bedroom done, bathroom in progress!
