I remodeled my gf's dining room, and kitchen. We're looking at the living room and master bedroom next. Her father and uncle did her bathroom as I'm not a fan of getting into plumbing. However they didn't swap out the tub so the old cast iron one is still there. I wish they'd have gotten me to come remove it (their age + its weight was why they left it), as it's really too small... too small for me anyway when I'm there, and eventually it'll be too small for the boys too when they get older/bigger.
If you're working in a home that's 50 years old or newer, you're fortunate most likely to be dealing without the hastles and bull**** you get with really old homes. Living in the East, and in particular an older city/area like my gf's place (or mine for that matter), you're very well maybe dealing with a home well over 100 years old. Mine is about 120 years old at least I'd guess, and hers is probably the same. Lots of structural problems and things you encounter.
Outside I've landscaped and graveled her driveway, but still needs more work as it's on a slope and the bottom tends to lose its gravel. I'm hoping to do a cement front to the driveway that catches the gravel so it doesn't wash out onto the street. This year I plan to put new front porch steps up, as the ones she had are treacherous and the guy that did them was a nimrod and half-assed it. Also a new sidewalk to the steps, as whoever did this had no clue about laying a brick sidewalk.
I have to landscape and lay some cement slabs I narfed from her niece in her back yard around the pool also, and run new gutters off the garage as the old ones got damaged and so water's basically just draining at the garage's sides. Not good there.
She wants a deck, but decks aren't my thing... I'm gonna try my hand at it but I'm hoping her father will be there to supervise this though so I'm not planning this out myself. She wants a fairly large deck that encompasses the pool, and while I dig the idea I just don't relish any thought of doing it myself.
I'm still putzing fixing her original doors to the kitchen (basement and kitchen cupboard doors) trying to putty all the divets and holes. They weren't well treated but I got them stripped of the 50 or so layers of lead paint they had on them, and now I just have to make them smoove and pretty.
That's actually the only CURRENT project I'm doing. I almost hate to get into the living room or master bedroom because both probably have issues with wiring I'm not going to want involved in.
That's about it for me... At my own place, I just bought all the land beside me on one side... It was owned by someone who bought up lots of property (some of value, some worthless), and when he passed away his wife offered all the land next to us, so now I've got the security of knowing I'll never have a neighbor on my right, just my left, which is nice. Plus I got the coal mine there with its super huge garage and another building. The land is pretty worthless, you couldn't build on it, but we found out some guy wanted it to put a junkyard on it, so I'm so thankful we avoided that. Plus that super huge garage is the bees knees.
If I ever rebuy a Thunderbird, I'll have a home for it now in the winter time. But fixing that garage has been a bit of a pain.
I'm also working on collection room shelving built to the one end of the collection room. Long process and I have little space to work in so I'm running into a couple snags, but it's coming along. I have way too many irons in the fire though, when it comes to home improvement junk. Working on two houses isn't exactly helping that situation.
