One week reno

We recently purchased a 3 bedroom Villa. We just tidied it up for rental. Total reno cost was $3600 (we had the paint) but when we finished we decided to add top cupboards in the kitchen as the kitchen was quite small. When we eventually replace the kitchen it will be the same as the top cupboards. So $4000 all up. Added about $20K I think.
Day 1-Hubby and brother ripped out carpet, toilet, vanity and mirror. Cemented in new toilet. Put in vanity and mirror. Took off kitchen cupboard doors. I painted at home after work 2 nights then put on new handles.
Day 2 Hubby-Repaired walls (there were little glow in the dark stickers over a few walls) and sanded. Removed all door handles. Painted one ceiling. Put up new light fittings.
Day 3 Hubby Pressure cleaned courtyard. Scrubbed colourbond fence (filthy). Took down curtains. Washed.
Day 4 Me- I painted all walls (4 were brick so didn’t need painting). My 75yr old mum helped cut in.
Day 5 Me- same again- second coat. Painted all doors.
Day 6 Hubby and I. (I couldn’t walk :(). Laid lino in kitchen and laundry. Painted all doors (second coat). Put doors back on kitchen cupboard. Laid skirting tiles in laundry. Clean.
Day 7- Hubby- grout skirting tiles in laundry. Put in stove (Ebay). Put door handles back on. Carpet layers came and laid carpet.
Hubby went back a week later and installed the top cupboards in the kitchen.

It will only let me upload 3 photos. If anyone is interested I'll upload more.
