Rental Renovation

We’re renovating our first home, now a 30-year-old rental in need of TLC. To save money Saw Man and myself (and at times our daughters, son in law and family), are doing as much as we can ourselves. We even laboriously painted popcorn ceilings throughout. Something I’ll never do again. Evenings after work, weekends and holidays.  Our hope is that a young family or retiree will find it desirable enough to purchase.
