Renovation Crazy

The insanity has begun. In order to sell our house there are several things that need to be repaired and numerous cosmetic jobs that are equally as important to entice the ever frugal homebuyer to pick our house instead of the guy on the corner.

I am happy to report that we have successfully changed the doorknobs on almost every door in our house. While this may seem like an easy task, trust me it's not. Our house was built in 1948 so when you want to replace a doorknob you have to replace the whole locking mechanism. Which is all well and good as long as you have the right tools to do it and lots of free time. Of course you might as well sand and paint the doors while they are off the hinges.

I am cautiously optimistic about our next project. We plan on laying tile in the downstairs bath, hallway and kitchen. Did I mention that we are doing it on our own and that we've never done tile work before? Oh well, we seem to have quite a few fully functioning brain cells between the two of us. I'm sure it will all work out great.
