I contacted the roofer who "repaired" the flashing around the chimney and he's coming out to take a look on Saturday.
Well back to the doorknob. I've been in my house for over a month now, so I figured it was about time to put a doorknob on the front door. Nope, didn't have one. All it had was a deadbolt and a couple of window sash pulls, one inside and one out. I'm really hoping that my roommates are surprised. Hooray for small accomplishments!
Here's what it looked like to start with:Starting to cut the holes back in (they were filled in with plaster):
I also started sanding down the walls in my room so I can get them primed and painted. I'm really anxious to get that space done and my furniture moved in so I can have some sort of sanctuary from my own house!
