It looks great, Steve.

Thanks a ton! It sure feels great.

Here she is, just gotta plant the plants and put some sod in a few places.

On my first rehab, a guy hammering on the roof called me a paranoid little weirdo. In morse code.

Man I love the before and after pics.  Great job on this one.  Is there a place on this website to share some before and afters?  Maybe we could all put up some pics!

Start a new thread and call it rehab before and afters, everyone can append theirs to it.

explain that brick painting to me.  it looks like the bricks and the mortar were painted separately, which would be a pain in the rear.  is that just my eyes playing tricks on me, and it's actually all one color?

either way, looks really good!

Yes, all one color bricks.  The front wall up top on the right you can see a different brick was used. It shows up in the picture quite well, but actually, in real life, you can't tell. I don't know why it is more obvious in pictures.

They just rolled it, all one color, and most of it took one coat.

Looks great!  Very clean and light.  Went a little chincy on the kitchen faucet eh?

LOL, Busted!

Seriously, the plumber picked it out, I saw it only after it was installed. ( First project, learning numerous things, lol )

I requested the type of faucet, single ball, less maintenance for a rental, but had no clue the sprayer would be plastic. Ugh. We had a similar faucet in the house I grew up in, minus the plastic, and it lasted for 20+ years with me and my brother's abuse. Sold. lol

Just to make sure you see the whole picture ( not sure what size monitor you may have ), but the center of the front wall is siding, and is painted a lighter color than the brick, as is the wood trim area around the front door. Are those the areas in question?

This is a basic house, the faucet isn't going to make or break it.  Of course if it bothers you it can be replaced or if it bothers the buyer you can throw in a better on as an incentive.  We're not talking a mansion here so a regular buyer won't even notice.  Everything is new and clean, that's all that matters.
