It has become painfully obvious that I will need to wait for the official listing photos for you to get the full effect of the finished rooms. My camera, lacking a wide angle lens, does not do the rooms justice. Here, for example, is the master bedroom all painted and carpeted.
Also, the carpet color looks kind of weird. Looks much better in person.
So let's focus on stuff that I CAN photograph like the front of the house which is just waiting for shutters and front door paint (oh and the final landscaping).
Busy, busy little hive of activity. All the carpeting is in (bedrooms and family room), interior paint done, doors all painted and ready to be hung and exterior painting underway.
Here's some photos of the guys hard at work.
Eric the painter...
Sparky 1 and Sparky 2 messing about with the wiring.
And Robo Ronnie showing off his new knees (among other things). Ronnie, buddy, I was honestly expecting more from you. Perhaps next time the Mr. will opt to photograph your bionic shoulders rather than your buttocks.
Inside, the carcasses are in for the kitchen cabinets and all measured up for the granite counter tops. I will say, yet again, that granite counter tops are icky, but everybody seems to want them. I would always go with corian myself. Granite is much hard to maintain and corian looks quite nice, but of course this house isn't for me, so granite it is.
Now you get the idea, right? That is the wall between the kitchen and living room with base cabinets and the uppers which will have glass on both sides (ignore the Mr. there, just measuring stuff, I think).
A little before and after. The former view from the kitchen into the unfinished space which used to be the back half of the garage.
Now sporting a new wall and an actual room. Nice little home office space. You can see in the corner where Jarrod has started laying down the tile.
I have a short before and after video of the family room that you can watch here.
The before family room had wood panelling and windows that were way too big. Just plain nasty. Do you remember?
After! Smaller, insulated windows, new slider, new walls, paint, carpet... lovely!
Still the elusive "two weeks" away from putting it on the market.
