Re: JRC's Nightmare on Elm Street (lots of pictures)

Thank you! I've been quite lazy lately. But with spring here, hopefully I'll have the ambition to get more work done.

Re: JRC's Nightmare on Elm Street (lots of pictures)

Catching up. Per my last post, the siding above the porch roof was fixed: http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c265/jr221/Northside%20Houses/Nightmare%20on%20Elm%20Street/Phone%20updates/IMG_20140717_172453_372.jpg I painted the porch railings: http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c265/jr221/Northside%20H...

Re: JRC's Nightmare on Elm Street (lots of pictures)

I did a little more work to the steps I mentioned in my last post: http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c265/jr221/Northside%20Houses/Nightmare%20on%20Elm%20Street/Phone%20updates/IMG_20140614.jpg I'm not completely happy with them, and might change the treads to something else before I paint them. I u...

Re: JRC's Nightmare on Elm Street (lots of pictures)

Thanks Theresse! Unfortunately, I haven't made any photo-worthy progress, lately. I have taken care of a few misc. tasks that I've been putting off, though. I painted the bathroom ceiling. I painted the tiny room at the top of the basement stairs. (the same color as the foyer) I repainted the dining...

Re: JRC's Nightmare on Elm Street (lots of pictures)

It's been quite a long time since I posted an update here! Since moving in, progress has really slowed down! :shock: :oops: Not long after moving in, I trimmed up the pine tree in the front yard: http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c265/jr221/Northside%20Houses/Nightmare%20on%20Elm%20Street/Phone%20up...

Re: JRC's Nightmare on Elm Street (lots of pictures)

Some areas of the first floor are now presentable, after the move-in. So here are some pics: http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c265/jr221/Northside%20Houses/Nightmare%20on%20Elm%20Street/Phone%20updates/IMG_20131026_094305_170.jpg http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c265/jr221/Northside%20Houses/Night...

Re: JRC's Nightmare on Elm Street (lots of pictures)

Over the last 2 weeks, Rob fixed the porch header and put the 3rd column in place: http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c265/jr221/Northside%20Houses/Nightmare%20on%20Elm%20Street/Phone%20updates/IMG_20130831_130756_848.jpg The electrician came out last week, and hooked up my new wiring to the breaker ...

Re: JRC's Nightmare on Elm Street (lots of pictures)

First, here is a picture of the inside of the porch header that I talked about in previous posts: http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c265/jr221/Northside%20Houses/Nightmare%20on%20Elm%20Street/08-17-2013/DSCN4148.jpg It doesn't seem like I made a lot of progress this weekend, because I spent some tim...

Re: JRC's Nightmare on Elm Street (lots of pictures)

It's looking so great!! Those pillars are wonderful. I'm bummed about the maple tree though. :( (sorry - I guess I'm a tree-hugger!) Don't worry about the maple tree too much. It was a weed that would have destroyed the garage, if it had been left alone for another 20 years, because it was so close...
