Also, DFD.....I'm practically dead compared to most guys on here, never post in the home improvement thread, throw up two things after you guys go through houses like Plac goes through cars, and I'm a Waxer motherfucker. Do I get to improve my house, ever?
You're just at a much older stage of life than most of us pre- :millennial: folks.

The switch is starting to flip for me now that I've got the :haus: - next career move will hopefully give me some aim towards retirement and knowledge of how to attain it.

I think it's safe to say that the home improvements should match the value of a house. If a place costs 80k and doesn't ho up in value yoy then don't spend 2k on a gate, but if it warrants a hefty buy in then that gate will bring the curb appeal to a standard that suits the buyer. If you're possibly selling in 5 years then fix your shit Dirk!

FWIW we are only in :haus: number 2... and we went from a $270k :haus: with 300 miles a day of commuting back down to a $150k one with 40 miles a day of commuting and a temporary 30% pay cut. I try not to be a hypocrite. Pouring stupid amounts of money and time into a house is stupid.

Not sure who you're directing this to but I believe most of us were only complimentary toward your improvements.

In the middle of the application process for an investment position with BoA/ML.

We'll see. One small step backward for hopefully a huge step forward.

The Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup in 2013/2015, meanwhile our Captain wonders why everyone is honking and waving a flag of some Native person.

When the smoke cleared this nasty bitch was $2K, installed with garage doors. The old one sucked, that was what came with the house 25 years ago. The "salmon" strip on the wall sucks, some neighbors are slowly just painting theirs "cream" or whatever the wall color is. Will paint the front door dark brown soon and the side garage door I just installed and painted "chocolate".....you can see it back there, will now need newer dark brown shade. That's the next post on here. It adds a lot of curb appeal. They are becoming very liberal with what color you can paint your house, and we will go with a darker brown tone soon. Upward and onward.
Solid upgrade. I might steal this concept to build a side door for Bag End. There's an arched entrance to the area where the dog :poop: that's now just a nasty chain link thing. Wife has been interested in upgrading that for a while, we were just never sure with what. That would do it.

5/7 upgrade.
