Dad's House
So my dad (the bachelor) and my sister (the teenager) are living like pigs with neat piles of crap everywhere.  I couldn't take it anymore, so I offered to help them redo the house.  For my sister's 16th birthday we redid her room and the bathroom for her.  I realize that the house looks somewhat neat in these before pictures.  That is because this room belonged to my other sister who moved out almost 6 months prior.  It had been untouched since.  If and when my father decides to clean out the rest of his dump (house) I will happily help him redecorate.  He supplied the money and I supplied all the labor/materials/ideas/shopping.
