Starting this job the day after Christmas, was only able to take a few pics due to overload of pics on my phone. There is a total of 8 rooms and they are pretty much in the same condition as you see here. Electric company won't connect the service until i obtain an electric inspection, meaning we will be working in the cold until that is completed. we are going to rehab the complete house.

Whats that about my brother?

That's my intial reaction to that kind of job. Done plenty. More construction than painting.

Did one once taking out all the plaster, including ceiling. Saved the period trim and refinished along with hanging drywall, etc, etc. Very dirty.

Anyway, nothing against you.

It's the kind of work I respect in other painters. There's absolutley nothing to equal hands on experience. There is so much to learn on this type of job, and apply to work in the future.

I learned by doing the work and having the owner, who's an antique's expert, looking over my shoulder. He's the bastard who had me hand scraping his queen ann before I knew anything.:censored: Great friend and a great person to know. I'd really like to take over his refinishing shop, just feel that I'll never have an eye for matching stains though. No, really, I have astigmatisms. And I'm a little goofy at times. What do you expect from a lifetime of sniffing paint?:)
