Evening y'all, back from a trip down to the SE coastal area of North Carolina to visit my mom.  She's in a house that is new to her.  It's 8 years old and needs some work.  Wish I could be down there to help get the house in perfect condition.  We had a nice time, ate some really good seafood.  Back to the grind tomorrow.

Eight years old and needs work? Just some updating or actual repairs? Sounds like if it is repairs, the builder must not have been top notch.

The house received one incredibly thin coat of paint on the interior and it was poorly done, so thin that you can see primer and sheet rock paper and joint tape through the paint.  The owner accepted it like that and never did anything, just lived there for 8 years.  The house was filthy and full of bugs, including termites.  Fortunately, the termites had not yet made it past the termite barrier and into the joists and studs.  Just tons of clean up, replace some rotted exterior wood, repaint inside and out, and demolish a wooden patio that is butted against the foundation.  Oh, and clean out 8 years of underbrush, dead leaves, and storm debris from around the house, then try to landscape it and make it look like someone cares.

Now you're ready for a vacation I bet!

After two days back at work, yes!  My mom realized that I was there to rest and did not have me doing anything more than moving some heavy items.  She has contacted a painter with a good reputation as well as a handyman, they will soon be coming out to give estimates.

Well it's good you all have found a reliable painter and especially the handyman. Both can be hard to find.

Especially painters, so many are one coat wonders.
