Re: This tenant is a "keeper"
I couldn't cut a straight line with a left handed skill saw.'
A roll of galvanized flashing and some stucco can create a great deal of beauty.
I made our outdoor dog jakes dog house out of old leftover scrap from my wifes house construction. I didnt pre-cut ANY of the wood. I took about 35 minutes to nail all the wood together and then took my reciprocating saw and "evened it out". Coverered all the seams with flashing and stapled a bunch of shingles to it.
Butt ugly after I was done with the saw...a thing of beauty now...
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
