48 hour remodel

Spent a very short 2 days in Flagstaff, AZ helping my sister Meg into her new place. And we worked until we thought unpacking Spanks was funny, well they are sort of funny. Thanks for letting me boss you about Meg. Although still recovering, I had a GREAT time!


List of Tasks Meg and I Accomplished in 48 hours:
  • deep clean of 2 bed/1 bath house that I'm pretty sure had not been cleaned since it was built in 1950.

  • one toilet repair - check!

  • one wooden looking ceiling fan dissasembled and put back together white. Yuck.

  • laundrymat trip to wash couch slip covers.

  • rotten and termite infested front door threshold replaced.

  • new curtains bought, hemmed and hung for every window in the place.

  • everything unpacked and put away (with the exception of a few boxes in the office - sorry we couldn't get to that Meg).


Here are some before and afters:

AND TO KELCEY

I know I am alot to put up with when I get into 48 hour remodel mode. You handled me well. You also impressed me with your oven pilot light adjustment and now I have no doubt that should Megan need another toilet kit replacement or front door threshold repair, you can deal and I won't need to fly out there. Enjoy your time together and thanks for putting up wth me!

Woa - Megan/Liz/Kelcey - nice work. That's a pretty impressive transformation (in a hyper short period of time). We can't wait to come visit 'Operation Flagstaff' in the near future. Brings us great happiness/joy to see two sisters working and playing so nicely together ... :-) love, Mom/Dad
