There is a house behind all the plants..................

The estate gave us her car, it had damage on every corner and a crease down one side. A 05 Acura RSX with 41k miles. We paid a place down here 1800 and got it fixed. It looks new now. It is a fun car to drive, real responsive.

Oohy Gooey sap, don't walk under it or permanent hair spray,lol!
Love all the tropical palms and vegetation down there. I have been a tropics kind of person all my life but will never live there. Don't like sweating!
They sure fixed up that car nice and what a deal you getting it w/the funds owed to you.

Oh I almost forgot about those bees making a home there. Now what do you do? Looks like they are going to be a problem maybe?

The sap feels hard, I actually touched it, but it must be slowly dripping. Really neat looking.

The bees, no clue what we will do, at this time nothing. They are not in the attic, not in the house. So not a bother. I will try to remember to take a shot of the built out area they are living in. Not Africanized. They did not attack me when I was grooming the plants. You sure can smell the honey.

We were impressed with the job they did on the car.

@addy1 Is this one of your properties?
It is Marks parents home ( now ours), we had just fixed it up when we rented it to the older lady whom died in February. We are fixing the damage she and the rats caused.
His parents passed in 2013 we rehabbed it a bit and rented it in 2014 to her.
We had to pull dry wall, cabinets etc and remove to get rid of the rat smell and debris i.e. poo.

The house is cinder block, around 1200 sq, 2 bdrm 2 bath.

Also pulling the bathrooms, cabinets installed in the 70's. And the rats chewed through them.

The worse part is the tile is cut, I tiled all the walls when we rehabbed it, the new cabinets don't quite match up, will need to figure out a nice trim job.

Good thing you like doing that kind of work and that you know how! I would have a continuous headache. Would have to hire it out. I know what good work you guys do so it will look nice when you get done.

I remember how nice you got the Baltimore place looking and then it sold! I'm sure this place will look just as nice, you do good work :)

Thanks for the good thoughts. We won't be done when we leave. We have a lot of detail trim work to do which is very time consuming. And way better to do when you are not rushing. I need to figure out how to cover the cut tile around the new cabinets. Best way to trim the opening in the kitchen wall, trim under the kitchen cabinets etc etc.

As soon as the kitchen counter tops get here we will be leaving. Right now I may need to cancel two appts in MD. Our nephew says stay as long as we want he is enjoying the house, tv, hot tub, free food, left the house stocked, free electricity.....................

Smart boy!

You have boundless energy @addy1 - I get tired just thinking about all that work! Although it's more mental than physical. I can work a long day - it's just all the decisions and choices that wear me out!

I do most of the planning lay out, honey is a good at destruction..........he comes up with good thoughts then we talk them out. Most of the trim, layout, function is on me. I really enjoy it.

Now sometimes after you install it is a opppppps, like the corner cabinet doors hit the led light fixture in the ceiling.
The bath cabinet door hits the gfi. The panty cabinet door hits the drop down AC vent, for some reason they have it in a box a foot below the ceiling. Then back in honey's court, move the electrical, rebuild the AC box. I tore that one apart!

Always something that is a oops.
