    the new seals on the door were major helpful. my fingers stayed pink and full of feeling, and i even turned the heater off after a while! *hands on cheeks in shock*

    but here, the blue room. cleaning supplies on the left are mine, the sofa and wicker and bed and string lights and day bed and beer pong balls were left for me (i'm unsure what i'll do with em), the dryer is going and i will be replacing the window ac unit hanging out of the wall at the end



    as you can hopefully see.... blue walls. it's glooped on pretty thick, and some old 10 layer deep wall paper is peeled back from behind the beam. the old heater will probably go somewheres else (but it makes such a good 'hold all the things' table!). i have the tiles mostly clean. there was a thick layer of dirt and dust on em, and several are cracked and broken



    but this is the kind of thing i'm working with here, this is just part of the frame on one side of the door. dirts, sags, gaps, badly did DIY, mismatched wood



    and a pepto pink bathroom rank with stains and uncleanable years old dirt and no ventilation so the ceiling is bubbled from showering. and the toilet wobbles. i feel very insecure there. the tub is glazed cast iron, so there's some rusting on it. and the mirror. is glued on. the wall. at dwarf level. i'm almost 6 feet tall, yo. and that toilet paper looking thing hanging out of the wall is toilet paper. there was a half inch gap that icy air from under the house was galavanting in like it owned the place



    and my sexy 'cleaning and messing around in a cold dirty house' outfit. sweats, crocs and fuzzy striped socks

    beautiful
    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    but with great age comes great need of repair



    and more beamage and brick. i oiled everything i was tall enough to reach and i imagine it'll be bone dry again tomorrow. i should just bathe it all in orange oil. i tried cleaning the brick but rags don't behave so i didn't get as much done as i'd have liked



    and by the way, the floor is one big sticker. it's not even linoleum

    the kitchen of the interesting colors has a better, somewhat sturdier floor though



    and even though it's only new from the top layer up, the couch makes me sigh in relief a bit. so much work. but this looks niceish, so i guess i'll just keep looking at it and breathing

    OMG that has sooo much awesome potential! The bathroom is special, though. I love the kitchen- but since I'm currently working on lime green socks, I might not be the best to comment on colors I love exposed beams- and it's awesome that they haven't ever been painted.

    I love fixers! Great project.

    Two homes ago, I took up the orange shag in the bedroom. Under it was newspaper; under that was linoleum; then another layer of newspaper, then wide plank wood floor! Fun stuff.

    i should be so lucky

    i'm afraid of what i'll find in the deeper layers. there's probably a thousand year old body in the bathroom wall, although that would make a GREAT halloween decoration

    speaking of decorating. paraphrasing speaking with bay;
    'do you think a tall lamp would look okay in the corner by the fireplace?'
    'it seems kind of redundant, the fireplace already throws off light'
    'yeah but that's functional, it's just used during the winter.. look i'm really bad at decorating and creativity'
    'i can see that'
    '*several second pause to process what my sweet baby bay said*'

    he got me, dammit. so a grudging high five on his butt. and maybe a few smacks. cause he works out, so, he got a butts i can smack on

    i have and had so many tabs up relating to fix-it and decor, it's ridiculous. i seeeee what i want in my head. but even doing what little i've done to make the place habitable inside and look less abandoned outside is killing my back. reality does not translate to what my brain says i can do even though i am hell bent on DIYing

    and even though i'm redundant with lighting

    and even though i'm worn down in the head and in the body. i told him that it felt like someone took the thick gnarly sandpaper and put it on a sander and ground me down to the nub

    i finally said f it and just spent the evening and night laying down watching tv because being upright was so unpleasant

    pleh

    i did not know you could paint with glitter

    I think the housewarming area could use more light from the left side (based on the pictures). How about a table and lamp beside a chair?
