Power washing the front.
Mow and trim lawn.

Contractor was no show. I got in contact with him and left a message and he apologize 2 hours later. He just lost my business (My dad contractor). If I knew he was not coming I would of had other plans that day.

Need to put a new storm door on the front screened in porch. After I measured it up, it’s not the most common size.

Here are the measurements. I think if I get a door like this, it says the common size is 32”x81” (actual 31.75”x79.75”)

The top and side is just a piece I can knock off as it was most likely added to make the current door fit.

lollin. Last guy was a realtor but also a 'carpenter'.

We use our front porch a lot in the spring/summer so need to start giving it a little attention. I'd be nice if I could get white but I have to get 'almond' which limits my choices on what door I can get. Plus I have to special order it regardless so want to make sure I order the right size.

Lot's going on in here, I like it, and ^ What Tony said!!

But you have room in that opening for a "normal" sized door, will just a be a bit of work required on your end.


I got the new Hardwired under cabinet lighting up, I love it, so much nicer than the battery units.

The best way to learn is to help someone else not ever tiling before do their house so you learn from all the mistakes you guys make and don't screw up your house.

if you can put two haves of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich together then you can tile a backsplash

Yeah, super easy. The hardest part is picking out the tile and grout combo.
