Well figured i would help a buddy out and let him move in for a little till he gets back on his own feet.. So we go into the spare room that hasn't been touched since we moved in.. I go to tap a nail in the trim and next thing i know a bunch of ants come out.. So i decide to rip down some trip and paneling to look into it more and wow did i open a bag of worms.. So tomorrow looks like i will be doing some framing work...

Whoever had the house before had the windows redone and whoever did the work never sealed around the windows.. Allowing the rain to get in and then the ants to have a nice new place to live...

wow That blows. If there is any bright side to it, at least you found this out now when the rooms not full of stuff.

BTW, the surprises never end.

Here is some pics of the outside of the wall after all the siding ripped off.. Like said before all because someone didn't know how to install windows right.. If you look u can see all the damage is just under the window.. Well the money for the VS was just spent on the house this weekend

Glad you got it all buttoned up today before the rain comes.
Then again I mean grandpa got it done. lol!
Did the back go out from picking up the hammer or was it a beer you bent down to pick up ?
Good job Jeff, and granpop.

Ok today started a small project in the bathroom... Previous owned did a addition and when they did they never hooked the exhaust fan up and there is no windows in the bathroom. So only place for the moister was the sheet rock.. Well it started to look real crappy in one area and look like some mold.. So Decided to cut that area out and patch it up and come to find out they also over packed insulation in the corners where the vets are to let the house breath.. So patch is up and first coat of spackle done..





So after all that still had some time to burn so painted the concrete patio ^_^

Well this weekend decided to sand the bathroom and cut a chunk out of the master bedroom wall to check out the water damage.. No where near as bad as the other room. Fixed where the leak was coming from and patched it up.. Bathroom only has to be painted now.. Bedroom needs 2-3 more coats of spakle...

Did a little framing to make something up so it would clear the pipes.. Also got the second coat of spackle done in the bedroom. Now its time to relax beer and wings and some good old football..
