Finally an update

First off, Erin and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary on August 28!! And we survived while fixing up a house, amazing. hahaha. We ended up staying here in Sacramento and went out to a nice dinner in Old Sac and relaxed mostly.

The rental unit is coming along. We have gotten a lot of work done over the last 2 weeks. I am just putting in a slide show to show you.

The floors are a new cherry wood but they are just dirty in this picture :)


So we rented a paint sprayer from Home Depot last weekend and painted the entire rental unit in 1 day! 3 bedrooms, the living room, the hallway, dining area, kitchen, entry, etc. We did not have a good start. We noticed at first that there was some pink paint coming out, and we were using white so we could tell, but it looked like we got it out and Erin painted the first room. His goggles were a little foggy and speckled from paint. We looked at the room and it was pink. PINK! I was not happy. I looked in the paint and also saw this, and went a little crazy.
Our paint was contaminated by a sealant that they put in the gun and you only need 1 drop. Some guy put the freakin whole bottle in it or something and it was constantly dripping into our paint, making the room look like this :)
We had to stop what we were doing, haul this sprayed back to HD covered in paint and tell them what was up. Luckily we didnt have to get all crazy, haha because I was ready to (now we lost $100 worth of paint, and we had to re-paint that room now and lost a few hours of our already crazy long day). But they gave us a brand new 5-gallon paint and set us up with a new sprayer and gave us another 24hours of rental time. But, at the end of the day and 15gallons of paint later, we were done :)
The bathrooms just need the plumbing hooked up, we have new toilets, vanities and sinks, new floors, new carpet, new doors, new ceiling fans and lights. Should be ready to rent out in October!! Anyone looking for a 3bdrm/2bath in midtown? Spread the word.

And last but not least, our side is ready for visitors:)

 Here is a sweet view of our attic! Erin has been installing fan boxes in the ceilings for the new fans we are putting in, so I snagged a picture. It's nice and big up there!
