My new casa

Postby Metroid » Sat Oct 24, 2009 4:03 pm

I posted a while back that Shannon and I just became first time home owners, it's a modest home but we love it. Anyway here's a few before and after pics that I finally got around to uploading. I failed to take any pics of the bedrooms, office, bathroom, laundry room, or garage. But here's a few of the front of the house, backyard, and the livingroom and kitchen. ;-D

Front of the house before/after(didn't do a whole lot here, pretty much just painted the trim.)

Livingroom before/after shots(we did a lot here, that orange was just awful. Being a Duck I could not have an orange livingroom. :-B New paint, floating bookcases, new fixtures, I only took one before pic.)
Image
Image
Image
Image

Kitchen before/after(again with the orange! Oh and they did an awful job, there was orange paint EVERYWHERE. It was on the counters, trim, fixtures, windows, floor...they didn't even bother taking the switch plate covers off before they painted. :-S Anyway, fresh paint, new appliances, new fixtures etc.
)

Here's just a shot of the small dining area.

Backyard before/after(cleaned and resealed the deck, painted trim and whatnot.)

And here's a couple shots of my bar in progress out in the back "cabana." :-B

What's with the mountain bike in the bar? Is that for when you're too drunk to walk? ;-)

Place looks great bro ;-D

Thanks man, yeah I have been very busy. I dunno if you've had to remove paint from wood trim or not but it blows. You can't really use any aggressive solvents because it'll ruin the finish on the wood. And like I said they had orange paint EVERYWHERE. Oh and in the bedrooms it was blue paint everywhere...it really was a mess. Pics show a lot of the before and after but they really don't do it justice. It was/is a lot of work. :-°

Haha. Actually that's my BMX cruiser. It was just in there because the storage area was a cluster. :-b

Thanks brother. ;-D

Really you only need to hire me, Shannon didn't do jack. :-B

Nah she did a little, she helped with the painting, but mostly she worked her arse off to help finance all the projects. B-)

Shannon kept Met from replacing the orange with green....

How far out does that window over the kitchen sink sit? That's a perfect place to grow herb. Herbs. I meant herbs.

Imma steal that kitchenaid if I ever visit. }:-)

that's funny, I remember when we looked at the house for the first time I said, "what the hell? did some Beavs live here? we're gonna have to cover this Beaver orange with Ducks green." She rolled her eyes and said, "yeah, in your dreams." :-B

It's just a small bay kitchen window, probably 12-16 inches deep, just perfect for herb, I mean herbs. :-B

Good luck with that, f you tried to steal that Kitchenaid Shannon would have your nuts.....wait that didn't sound right... I mean, well you know what I mean. :-b
