I used a wall sander on all the walls to get them smooth again, worked great.

Pulling all the carpet was disgusting, animal piss on every square foot of the full 1800 was nasty

I sanded the floors of 6 rooms and the landing with the drum sander, that was the most work.

Currently i am just finishing up the trim work cutting in the painting.

We will have to just get the carpet for the one family room and then it will be mostly done.
That sucks. Congrats on getting moved in.

We got the house in Nov, so i did all the lawn tending only to find out 2 days after i was done that the PO (old lady who had lost her mind) had a lawn care service. They probably got there and drank beer for 4 hours and just hung out. They did get every little leaf that was in the garden though that i missed. how nice of them , nice waste of a weekend for me.

Haha, i had something similar, the guy we bought the house from had the lawn mowed and fertilized, which i realized when i saw the little stick in the ground, like 4 days after we moved in and i had just bought fall fertilizer. They also came and cut up some old trees. I was all mad at first cause people were coming on my property, but then i was like...wait a minute, i dont have to do anything now!

i wish that had happend to me. This yard is pretty big and has many trees that sheds leaves like a leper in the sun.

They did however also winterize the lawn when they were there.
