New kitchen chandalier, on sale at work 60 bucks.


Yep thats 3/4 inch particle board used as a wall covering, and yes it has water damage, this was replaced with good drywall.


Carpet sample, we decided not to install a 3200$ maple floor with a baby coming. Carpet for the whole rest of the house comes to 1200 bucks.


That vinyl had to go. It wasnt even glued down.

Move outta there, lions and tigers and bears oh my.

Looks like a reptilian farm over there. And what about that useless snake not eating those darn mice.

The project is lookin good, keep it up, your going to be busier soon.

You need a good dog too, one that pays attention. No snakes in baby's bed.

Great job Phatboy, I just finished reading all 21 pages of your post and I wanna run to Home Depot and pick up some materials for my own reno. Hope to see more updates soon. BTW, what program are you using to do your drawings of your house?

Wow, what a story! It's comforting to know there are people out there as crazy as my wife and I. Just joined here, will be posting pics of our 3 year project.

Ok well, to start things off I got the ceiling textured in the bedroom.

Closer look at the texture

Texture in the media room, remember the huge hole in the ceiling, from the bad drywall?

Closer, yes I sprayed the fan, no its not staying.

Texture on the walls, and finished up the fix on that bad spot.

Media room wall textured.

Got the living room painted

Same goes for the media room
