Sharing a Big House with Some Buddies

I was not sure this was going to work at first, but so far it has been pretty good. The other guys wanted me in on this deal because they needed me to help them to fix this place up. It works like this, the one guy inherited this big old house from his grand dad. It is not quite a mansion, but half a dozen people can live in this place without really getting in one another’s way. It has a satellite dish with and there is Directv on demand from a whole house DVR. It has about five different satellite boxes, so we all got our TVs in our own rooms, and there is another one in the living room. Of course this place has at least a thousand and one things that needs to be done to it. The other guys are paying rent, but for now I am paying with my skills.

The place has three bathrooms, but these were built in the pre history of plumbing. That is a bit of a joke, but it is not really that funny. We are starting out with the main one which is seeing the most use. Obviously it is the one nearest the living room and the lower level bedrooms. I am going to do it this weekend and I am going to hope that those guys can help me out to some extent, but it is not something I am pinning my hopes and dreams to. After that I move up to the second story where they have two bathrooms. One of them is in really bad shape, so it is going to be done first. After I finish with all three bathrooms the kitchen needs to be done, but that is going to be expensive and might not be soon.
