I bought this house about 4 years ago and have been working on it ever since. Started with the inside, gutting it, rewiring and re-insulating before rocking. It now has triple sponged paint on the walls, the master bedroom is almost done and next is the kids room. Right now it is time for the outside work, snow here in about 3 or 4 weeks.

Better get going before the snow is back. Lots of work but well worth it. I’m with Lew, I would like to see other pics of area.
