I spent the whole weekend helping a friend get a house ready to move into. Great deal because it was a FNMA foreclosure. However, it had been empty for two years and abused before that. My personal tally for the weekend was putting a new laminate wood floor down (on uneven concrete), three light fixtures, two ceiling fans, a dozen new outlets and switches, a toilet, two faucets, swapping out a bad breaker in the panel, ripping up three layers of old flooring in the entire walkout level, fashioning and installing lots of trim and wallboard and assorted painting. Oh, and moving a ton of stuff. I hurt.
