Finally an update!

Okay so a recap of the remodel
All wall strips and trim molding were removed from walls
Whole house was primered first, then drywall seams were taped and floated
Whole house was shot with orange peel texture then painted
So far no problems at all with paint peeling or chipping
All carpet was pulled out and replaced with laminate wood flooring
Replaced all interior doors and door knobs
Installed ceiling fans in all bedrooms and living room
Replaced mirrors and fixtures in both bathrooms
It was alot of work and could not have done it without my family especially
my two brother in laws and uncle.

Fourth of July priming party!

Today I spent part of the 4th priming the walls of the home. I went with the Zinsser 123 primer to have a good foundation for the next step in completing the walls. Next I will tape the wall joints and then shoot the walls with an orange peel texture.

Primer looks way better than original printed factory walls from previous post

Painting is easy when you have two brother in laws willing to help on a holiday!
