Been WAY too busy lately.. bought the basket case house, did some major
bust and dust on it, one day I'm busy hanging new dry-wall when some
dude walks in and starts talking to me about the house.. he says he was
looking at it and wanted to buy it to do a complete over-haul on it like
I was doing, but was called out of the country for Military service. he
politely inquired how much I ended up paying for it, and was visibly
pained when I told him... long story short, I owned the house for a
month, sold it to him for a fat cashiers check (not to say the cashier
was fat, though she may have been, but the check was large ;-) and
cleared a chunk of change.
So now I'm building a new house:
(note the 2-car shop ;-)
It's coming along nicely:
It doesn't look like it, but I should get my C.O. and move in on June first.
To finish out the second floor "expansion room" above the 2-car shop.
(month of June) I need to find a mill in or near Memphis, TN that will
sell me 3/4" T&G Southern Yellow Pine flooring It needs to be sanded,
but bare. I hate Pollyurinestain. I will hand finish the floor with
shellac (I hope Paddy has LOTS of flakes for me) and buff with wax. this
is going to be a play room for the kiddies and I like pine, and hate
repairing scratched Poly....
John G. in Memphis, TN Have a nice......... night.
