While we were out of commission for a week, things did progress on our projects, and we did evaluate a lot of houses. We even have some exciting prospects!
At the Rattlesnake property, work moved forward, even with the Independence Day holiday coming smack in the middle of the work week. At least it’s not on Wednesday too often!
Inside Closely Resembles a House
Inside the house, Chris and Gary have all the texturing of the walls finished. All the “good” windows were taped off carefully, but the ones that are still going to be replaced now look quite freckled and festive. That tells you one more thing that has to happen before flooring: the rest of the windows. But first, they will prime the walls. It’s getting real.
Another step forward is that the guys finished out the stairs. There are now nice pieces of wood on the risers, and they very neatly finished off the end of the stairs that extends past the kitchen wall. Those stairs are such a major improvement over the old, scary ones.
Outside the house, Gary did a wonderful job cleaning up the considerable amount of debris that had been building up outside the house. There was old insulation, a lot of glass from old windows, boxes from drywall supplies, and oh so much more. It was beginning to look like some sort of hoarder residence or something, and we certainly didn’t want Joe the Cat living in such surroundings (ha ha).
