    Remodeling my house.......

    I have been doing it off and on the last few years and am finally almost done. It was my grandfathers house and just updating it. Been doing alot the last couple months. Today I removed 8 windows and installed new double hung ones to match an addition I did a few years ago. Now just waiting on my wife to paint the living room and I am gonna start replacing the floor in most of the house. Besides that today I cut grass for hopefully the last time this year and had to remove a huge antenna from the roof of the house. The point of this is that I am absolutely whooped right now. Just trying to get the outside done so that when winter passes I can overhaule the yard and outside.

    Sweet

    I just bought a house and have been busy doing odd jobs that make me feel like a handy man

    I sold my old place to my daughter. Now I'm remodeling it and I don't even own it anymore...

    Sounds like you have a nice project going for yourself. Real estate/home remodeling has always been an interest of mine. Next up on my list of things to do is repaint my laundry room and one of the bedrooms...fun! lol

    I love being a homeowner and hate it all in the same breath for just the reasons you guys stated.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    Do you know what year the house was built?

    I've always wanted to buy a old house and fix it up (easier said than done?).
