An update on the house: the downstairs apt is done!
I didn't do a great job with before pictures, but here are the after pictures! The downstairs apartment is done! New paint, new flooring and carpet, new electrical, new lighting, original 50's tile, original doors and knobs, old green trim which I grew to love and couldn't paint over. . . Loads of thanks to my helpers, Analeis and Annie, and of course the people we paid, but they have their reward. . .
Upstairs is looking good, too. Pictures next week.
