Well, as luck would have it our AC compressor just died, only months before we sell the house!
A piddly $1500 later and today we will have AC once again downstairs. a gift to the new owner.
Things are finally seeming to move on the new house. We hired a plumber and he is working on fixing all the stuff the other idiot messed up (a ton of stuff), plus finishing the plumbing work in the house.
We are getting estimates for things like tile installation, electrical work and even a kitchen remodel (that will wait till the other house sells).
Fun stuff, but all this really chews up time in big chunks. We are texturing and painting at the new house also, so that the back area can get ready to have the carpet installed.
Hopefully I can post some more images soon.
