    Right on Mixalot, super stoked for you. Is that at Coco beach?? The good news is that’s after asbestos. Is that large brown wood ceiling a stain or paint? All in all the place is in good shape. Has it been inspected for termites? I can’t wait to see your work on it.

    Thanks DWB! The home is actually just South of Cocoa Beach in Satellite Beach. That cedar tongue and groove ceiling was stained. Yes the home had termite and an overall inspections that are required for the bank financing. I really appreciate the feedback! -Paul

    Welp here’s what I did…

    Yup that’s what it needed. The white looks so much lighter and better. That brown wood is so dark and old looking.

    Those are exactly my thoughts Randy!

    Really, I think that painting the wood ceilings brought them back to life after serving the previous homeowner well for over 30 years.

    Hey I don’t know what your master plan is in there??? My thoughs,,,The kitchen needs drawn out by a kitchen designer and I would think of dropping the ceiling in there so some can lights and a stove hood could be installed. On the big ceiling space. I guess those are big scissor trusses?? Or Hand cut roof up in there? Have you though of breaking it up with some false beams and a false ridge?? There are some nice foam ones that look like wood and don’t weigh very much and it would give the ceiling that open beam look.

    I wonder where the mouse went? Probably find a nest somewhere during demo.

    Florida like here are known for the B-52s and that’s what I guess were eating the calendar. They like the paper products.
    Paul are you on the Atlantic side or the Indian river side?

    @Sir_Mixalot wow, good thing you can that rot under the aquarium,
    Could have been a messy spill
    Some of that wood was very rotten

    Coming along nicely, keep up the great work.

    Very nice, Paul. Is the new avatar a page from your 1984 calendar?
