    I bought this house at the end of march, been meaning to post pictures but ive been way busy working on it. Ill give you guys the tour.


    This is what my house looks like from the front. Replaced the wooden panel garage door with an insulated roll up with an opener.

    My garage, pretty messy right now but after the renovations are done I'm hoping to get two cars in there.

    Theres a little closet in the garage, filled with christmas decorations, gonna put a gun safe in there soon. Tankless water heater I got put in, other crap.

    Heres the den or family room, still working on the floors, I installed laminate flooring throughout the whole house.

    Solar would probably work really well, but my electric bill is usually 20-50 bucks, so financialy it wouldnt help alot, even though I dont see a problem why I couldnt do the solar, if they are worried about it being an eye sore, refer back to my neighbors tarp and pvc porch. my big concern is to get off propane as much as possible, thats why i got an electric dryer and a tankless water heater and im gonna get a pellet stove hopefully before winter comes.

    I live in Elizabeth Lake, scooby's parents live across the lake. Its near the lancaster/palmdale area where i have lived my whole life. You can see the airport on this map that I work at.

    Very cool, particularly the goats and sheep! Had I know you could rent something like that I likely would have never gotten married.

    It's some sort of weird desert technology that uses swamp water to cool their homes. I hear it smells terrible.
