Over the last few weeks I have had three bids for painting the inside, they have ranged from $13K to $18K plus paint. At that price I decided I would paint the house myself and acquired a spray painter and started painting the house myself and was going to have the trim painted by a pro. After just a few hours with the sprayer, I ran into Elgin to Parker Lumber, while there I picked up a card for Painter Oscar (512-801-9550) and he came out the next day to look. He agreed to paint the inside for half of what others were wanting and one-third for the outside... YEP, he got the deal... In four days he painted the entire inside, minus the trim that has not been installed, and we pulled away one quart of paint for each room to ensure a correct color match after the trim is installed (we hope). While he was painting, I was able to get the decks for the two drop-in tubs built and ready for the tile guys to lay tile. That is to start on Tuesday April 5th. They say two weeks to install four bath walls, and 2,500 sq. ft. flooring. The electrician will start on the 18th. Strange colors were only painted on one wall per bedroom.
