So here's where I'm at on current projects: -Gutters: Bought 'em. Was kind of hoping to paint the trim before mounting the gutters. -TARDIS: Need to do the finish work on it (and get the bugger watertight), but I'm stalled by foul weather so there's a tarp over it. -Floors: Pretty much just need to clean and lightly sand the other bedroom floor before finishing. Now the living room...that needs a rented belt sander and an afternoon of work. And the mini-hallway between the living room, bedrooms and bathroom, I'm going to have to gobble a solution together for. Probably Pergo. The walnut floor meets the cedar flor there--with a nice chunk of plywood thrown in for good measure. Oh, and someone did an excellent job of installing wood-tone linoleum over that. Several hours of scraping and still, less than half of it is cleared. And as much as I'd like to do the kitchen, the vinyl there is in good shape. And it has a floor structure like the bathroom--with significantly more square footage so fuck that, if anything, it gets Pergo. Exterior paint & minor trim work: waiting on weather. Landscaping: Hell, take a number. Besides, there's only so much you can do in the winter. One interesting development is that I was finally able to get rid of my surplus heating oil tank. The Russian scrap metal guy has been eyeing it since Labor Day and I wasn't able to hide from him Saturday. So Sunday he came over with an associate to pick the thing up. I foolishly assumed there was only a minor amount of oil in it. It turned out to be about 100 gallons. So now I've got 100 gallons of heating oil but no tank for it. (Trust me, you don't want to know). Thankfully, someone is supposed to be by tomorrow. As much as it pains me to give away around $300 worth of oil, it is a liability to me. -Oh, and the garage roof. That was the whole reason for this update. If I had it to do over again, I'd definitely have contractors do it. Yes, it would've cost me 3x what I paid for just the materials, but it would've lasted 3x as long and I wouldn't have wasted countless weekens up on the roof--or countless rainfalls going inside to see how badly the fucker is leaking.
