Brockton Flip...what feels like day 528..only day 22

Z and I always set goals & timelines that we never meet. We typically work really hard then slack off for a few days...and continue that in a cycle. Last night I was supposed to finish painting before the carpet is installed on Monday...but I slacked off and spent the evening with a friend watching a crappy movie that made us both depressed...but it was still fun to hang out before she leaves for several weeks. Since I fell behind last night I'm now looking at an extremely busy weekend to say the least.

-All trim work upstairs must be painted
-Finish all the walls along staircase
-800 sq ft of carpet is installed on Monday..woohoo! But that means all painting has to be done.
-Lay backerboard AND tile upstairs bath before Monday...yikes!
-Put up backsplash in kitchen
-Grout the kitchen countertop

Just looking at the list makes me stressed. Since my pictures have been erased off my memory card TWICE since this started, I took more pics tonight. Enjoy....

soon to have carpet!

slackin' on the job....

Our new carpet...which I got for 65% off..i love finding a good deal!

Newly laid granite tile countertop...(missing backsplash, grout, and a good cleaning)
This was a nightmare to do.

Upstairs bedroom...this room was DISGUSTING! If only my original picture hadn't been erased. I have never seen so much dog poop in my life...on a bedroom! Yuck! The walls were terrible with close to 100 holes that had to be patched, sanded, sanded again, and 2 coats of wall paint, 3 coats of trim paint! Quite the job.

The condition of this room wasn't too bad. This will be 'Zach's Room'...with the big screen, surround sound, 200 dvd's, etc. I stopped him though when he wanted to 'sound proof' the room with foam or whatever.

Loft area which will be my new office...yay!!
Also, our new kickbutt tile saw.
