some were scrapped and then sanded

 

 

 

all second floor then stained and sealed

 

 

 

a few old and ungrounded outlets upgraded to GFCI

 

 

 

exterior work done also

the house needed a power wash and a yard clean up

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

front door needed a few muntins replaced and glass panes then reset

 

 

measure twice

 

cut once!!

 

re install the glass panes

 

 

the downspout from the gutter above back door had no place to discharge

(and that section of old fence had to go!!)

 

 

 

so we start by laying out the new drainpipe

 

pull the bricks up where the pipe will go

 

laser level to check trench depth –

then bury the pipe and back fill with sand

 

and bury the tail end along the property line – following the grade towards the street

replace the bricks and sweep the top with remaining sand
