ok this isn't about a car, but Hotel Squizz has been needing some up dates.

we got newer furniture so Karen desided she want to paint the living room. i said fine have fun doing it. but then she wants it 2 toned so now i have to put up a chair rail molding around the room. no biggie i like wood working anyway.so then i'm like fine we're getting new carpet in the living room and the hallway. and also new flooring in the kitchen and bath. so here are some pics and more to come later.





 

here's the new flooring going down.

and here is is done



 

here is the bathroom done.

here is the old carpet and living room before paint.







and a snag along the way. they cut the door jambs and moldong to make room for the vinyl floor. WHY they did i don't know sincethe old flooring was removed from under them. well the cut the wire that i had installed many years ago to feed the ceiling fans in all the bedrooms.it even melted the switch... you think they would've told me but no i had to find out at 8:00 that night when i went to turn the pantry light on. so i had to fish a new wire thru my finished drywall ceiing in the basement and all the way to the fuse box to fix what they did.i'm still waiting to hear if there going to pay me for fixing it. otherwise i told them i'll hire an electrician to do it then they can pay more.there was no reason they had to cut in that far in the first place.

very nice Jim and Karen!!!!

adding more on Dave comment in the OT thread... you know Dave, we better start looking for another place to stay near Hotel Squizz with all these upgrades that take placed after we leave. Not becasue they don;t want us around our we can afford the room to stay there, but because it keeps costing Jim every time we visit lmao!!!!

well i had the day off yesterday to wait for the cabinets to be delivered.
they got there around 11:00. so i wasted little time and started to install them.
was a pain to work around appliances and all the stuff in the kitchen. i did get to buy
a new tool thou. i needed a right angle drill to drill for the face screws.

anyway here are some pics of the base cabinets that i took out while waiting for the delivery.




here is the first cabinets being done.


the row over the fridge is done.



this cabinet used to be 21" now it's a 24"


the row over the microwave. what fun it was drilling all the holes to mount the microwave without having the template
that comes with the wicrowaves. but i got it all correct on the first shot.
