    LOL So I got reffered from a good friend to take a look at this property that needed to be completely trimmed and, weeded, mowed, and gutter cleaning. I went and took a look and couldnt beleive how bad this place looked. I decided to get to work on it the very next day. I went out and rented my new best friend "Vermeer" which can be viewed in the pics. That was a life saver. It was just 2 of us that worked on the property for 9 hours. There is still some little detail work but the house hasnt been touched in 2 years and vacant for 4 years so we were only able to do so much. But here is what we did in a day.

    Here is the front before:

    Thats it for pics. We are heading back out there on Monday to finish things up but its at about 85% done in those pics.

    Just thought Id share since I have never posted much of my work- This project isnt something we normally do, It was a favor (Not a free one) for a friend.

    Very nice work, but I can't believe that you thought this place looked that bad. Since the economy downturn that looks like every 5th house does down here. I've seen & worked on houses that looked ALOT worse than that!
