Both of my rentals had one like that. Sold em on CL for 200-300 I think

But I just needed it gone.

Would have loved to keep it but just wasn't exactly the right fit for my plans with the house

Got the range in, counters come in 10 days, doors should arrive at the end of the week. Hopefully one more month and I will be done.

Some very nice updates around here. I've now painted 3/4 of the house, put up a tire swing, replaced all the screen on the back porch and installed kickplate all around, as well as replaced several light fixtures and fans. I've got 2 months left in school. Hopefully, then I'll have time to work on the 130 instead of the house.

Congrats. I am inching toward the light at the end of the tunnel on the castle. Beams being restained and some recently de-vined plants.

Congrats! Does this mean the town celebrates by sending you an updated tax bill?

Your castle is looking great! By the looks of that main chimney you could roast a pig in the fireplace.

I feel your pain with de-vining. Just removed all this ivy which stretched all the way down (obviously) & into the window. Save most of the cedar shingles but the short side has a lot of water damage & will need to replace the complete section probably.

Then there's the wisteria which is literally tearing apart the both the front & side poches. At least it's easier to manage.

Nice!
Put the kitchen window facing that way & no one will complain about doing dishes.

Thanks. That is the small fireplace for the dining room. The big one in the living room is so wide it actually has a window in the middle of the chimney (which is the bane of my existence since the ceiling above the window leaks).

Aaah the joys of owning old houses. Mines only 100 years old and much much smaller then Castle d'Evilfij. How old is yours?

Some day I'll have an old stone house. I was just in west Germany / eastern France and I heard you can buy a real castle for next to nothing. Updating it should be cheap too.

I always tend to do a little (or big) something in any house that I live in.

The current house and hopefully last has the old style light switches and outlets. I have always used the Leviton Decora style's but really wanted to change it up a little and when with the Pass & Seymour adorne switches and outlets. Not half way done yet and probably need to buy more devices. This was the first shipment.

I have also put a Pass & Seymour OnQ panel for organizing Internet, Phone, Cable, Speaker, etc. and making it clean to avoid this mess. I have bought the panel and modules but haven't installed yet. Old house is pictured but never really finished it fully.


My garage is in my basement. At first I was apprehensive on that location but much easier to store and organize tools with access to the garage. Plus the garage is a nice temperature year round. (Live in Eastern PA)

Anyone have recommendations for tall skinny shallow refrigerators? We're in the slow process of redoing the kitchen and only place to place the frig is where the main vent is. The space is fits a 30" but the riser pipe pushes it out 5". Visually it does not look good pushing into the room which is already small. Summit has some roughly 24"x24" that would fit perfectly. Anyone own a Summit frig? Most are only 12ish cu.ft but we will have an overflow frig in the basement and it's only the two of us.

What is the pipe made out of? If it is cast iron, you can move to ABS (or PVC) and reduce the outer diameter, possible enough to get it to go in the wall. do you have a pic of the area?

I have a summit but it is only a bar type unit. From what I remember they have had great reviews and are designed to be built in, in the size that I needed. For the money I had to go with them as the other products on the market were over $1000.00.

It has been used continuously for over 4-5 years. And moved to another house.
