Day 1

We closed on the house at 10 am, and I started work about 11. Since we aren't moving into it until the 23-24, I have some time to do the messy work before there's anything in the house to get messy. Unfortunately, most of today consisted of getting ready to get dirty...

This is my first old house. It has a brick exterior, plaster walls, and grandma curtains -- the whole shebang. In the next 4-5 years, the plan is to rehab/refurb/update as much of it as possible. I put together a todo list with a rough timeline, but I'll keep that to myself for now. Hopefully this blog will serve as entertainment/downtime for me and reference for those that would come after me.
