Yeah, up and down and hard surfaces on the knees is brutal. I decided to spend this summer outside building a fence out of pallets I found. It went well, until I coudln't see shit and couldn't breath because of the fires. But made pretty good progress...

I only paid for the hinges and a couple bags of concrete...and a couple 4x4 posts

nice job :thumb:

I'm trying to get better at reusing shit. I just took out a bunch of oak cabinets and saved the wood for something else in the future and normally I would just get rid of it.

Also where I live it's free to go to the dump and they let you pick through the wood pile and take what you want so I might try to find some wood for some landscaping stuff.

Creep, here's the mobile home in Oakridge. $180K for the house and 3 acres:
That looks pretty nice for the money. It helps that it's on a permanent foundation. Much easier to sell.

I wish I didn't have to work a real job and I could "flip" FT. If I was a little younger I might take the chance.

For now it's buy and sell every two years. :bored:
See, you were thinking what I was thinking about the foundation. If it's real, that's a steal. I didn't have a proper tour, and I was trying to see if that was just split faced veneer block or if it's actually a stem wall. Couldn't see inside the vents and felt a little hollow when you banged on it. I think it's just 4" veneer unfortunately, but the wall is in really good shape. But wouldn't really matter if I wanted to do something extensive (or anything really, outside of sprucing up the interior) Definitely needs a new roof, but I don't think there is water damage to the walls/interior. It's a foreclosure so the interior is totally shot, looks like a junkie lived there unfortunately.

Thanks, I still have more I want to do, but moved on to building a new deck in the back, as whenever I moved my deck chair around a leg would go through the painted cedar decking boards. Previous owner was meticulous in painting the deck boards, not good, traps water.

It costs $40 for your first #350 and $10 for every #100 from there at our local dump. People still go in droves....

I had a lot of time on my hands this last year so I have been scavaging for wood and metal at all the industrial warehouses and manufacuters here. Very successful. Marble and granite suppliers and wholesale contractor suppliers are the best of the best. Regularly they throw out huge protective casings for shipping made of 2x4, 2x6, 2x8 and 2x10 - 8' and 10' lengths. It takes a bit of legwork to dissasemble on site with a crowbar and sledge, but I got easily $4,000 worth of clean framing lumber over the summer, fun doing it too. Now I can't do it, have a job, but that's alright. Definitely for the best.

Here's part of my pile, have another 4 piles like the one in the background. You can see this was the day the fires moved in as well. In about an hour, the weather turned to RED and stayed that way for days....

You people have really big fucking houses!

We recently bought a flat of our own here in Santiago. We are currently repairing it, as the previous owners rented it to some really disgusting people. Hopefully, we'll move around January 2021. It's in a nice part of town and one of the good things is that we're basically designing it as we want from the bottom up. Windows, floors, electric, heating, kitchen... just everything.

It's been quite fun.

And the building was built in like 1955, so I wouldn't be too surprised if in the next 10-15 years we receive an offer as a construction company attempts to buy the whole lot.

Great day!

Got the lot!!!

Still one left........ :wink:


Creep, you need to get a job up here and build spec houses.
They will sell for $300-500K and you won't be dinking around with small returns....
You're always saying how much you hate Cali, you got real outdoors here without the crowds...... :nod:
Plus you get an NBA team that will be in playoffs every year and people like them, a lot.

No good burritos though............ :nyrexall:
