Oh, my wife's cousin just sold her little condo in CO springs for 230K. She paid 150K 2 years ago.
I on the other hand bought our place 3 years ago and it appears to be a flat market here. That's fine. I just don't want to lose money.
My parents paid $17000. Yes $17K for their place in Austin in '76. Recent appraisal was 550K.
Got my tickets for Dark Lord Day. They've been improving the experience every year the past few. Let's hope the weather cooperates this time.
We've monitored it for 3 years. The inspector said they put in the chimney before the slab was dry and it cracked. It's not getting any worse. Just flexes a little. The orange stuff flexes instead of the tile. But to keep the whole floor level you'd have to put it everywhere. Basically a whole body bandage because you have an ingrown nail.http://www.schluter.com/schluter-us/en_US/Membranes/Uncoupling-%28DITRA%29/Schluter%C2%AE-DITRA-%26-DITRA-XL/p/DITRA
Foyer and sitting room. We're doing wood look tile (bring the hate). 475sqft is both rooms. That'd be a big bathroom.
So I got the quote in for the tile. 475sq ft = $11K lol. Keep in mind the tile itself only accounts for $2700 of that. Sooooo, I'm having Lowes come give me an estimate. Obviously a locally owned union labor shop is out of the question. My concern is a crack I have in the slab that flexes a little bit with the seasons. The current tile has cracks in the grout from it in about a 3ft square area but that tile has probably been down for 30 years. Dude said he would put down...
Yeah, the tree guy told me he's an old pro. No, I'll probably just burn it. I need the wood and I don't have time to do any fine work. I'll count the rings here sometime in the next few day. It's got to be at least 100.
white oak
Just had our biggest oak taken down, probably a >100yr old tree. He gave me brake since I'm going to cut it up for firewood: $1200
