Hi my name is Chris and I just bought a 2100/6200 foreclosure. Its a 5/3 RR with a 2 car garage. I redid the paint and flooring myself. We managed a 16x16 diagonal/offset with the 80% of the house. The seal is a dull one but works well with the style. The tile colors are autumn and work well with the coffee colors painted on the wall.
The master bed room shower was a problem and ended up getting someone to do that for me using the slate for the final room. Now working on finishing up with slating one of the rear bedrooms and carpeting the last room. Molding is another task that hasnt been budgeted yet but is expected to be finished by the end of the year.
I decided to join this forum because I am no expert at doing all this myself. I also have a little "know how" on slate and am willing to help anyone.
