today i'll be mostly decorating our old house with Rich and my Brother - with lots of doors and windows open and non-toxic paint!


March 29, 2009 at 04:32 opaque: Hope you get it all done :)
March 29, 2009 at 14:53 the_great_destroyer: we're about 2/3 of the way through - such a big job as it's the whole of the downstairs, upstairs and landing! Only the two bedrooms not being painted :o
March 29, 2009 at 14:54 the_great_destroyer: I'm shattered and so is Rich lol!
March 30, 2009 at 13:54 thepurestfeeling: Are you using brushes or the gun?
March 31, 2009 at 04:07 the_great_destroyer: Brushes and rollers...
March 31, 2009 at 12:14 thepurestfeeling: yikes. thats really a big job. your arms must be ready to fall off.
March 31, 2009 at 12:25 the_great_destroyer: whst got me was the constant standing up/squating down - my bump weighs a tonne lol!
March 31, 2009 at 12:26 the_great_destroyer: mind you it's a very small house compared to what you guys in America are used to - yours alway look so huge compared to what we have!
March 31, 2009 at 12:33 thepurestfeeling: i dont like the big homes. Too much to take care of.
March 31, 2009 at 12:39 the_great_destroyer: I'd like a 4 bed place in a few years - ours is 3 bed...but not a huge one!
March 31, 2009 at 13:07 thepurestfeeling: ours is a 3 bed as well. We bought some land awhile ago to build a bigger home but now the economy sucks and i cant afford it.
March 31, 2009 at 13:41 opaque: Theres one thing I noticed about a lot of houses in American when I was there. They are made out of cardboard and breezeblocks. Thats why so many people have hom
March 31, 2009 at 13:42 opaque: homes. It's not the same as every single house being made out of brick like we have. I always wondered why cars could drive through houses in the movies ;)
March 31, 2009 at 13:43 opaque: I know it's a generalization but it's something I really noticed on the trains going across the US.
March 31, 2009 at 13:57 thepurestfeeling: Yeah. Brick homes were more dominant years and years ago, nowdays most use the stucco or vinyl siding junk. Its just cheap and we frame the homes from wood.
