I was called today by Lowe's to inform me that my special order sink was in. After I left work I headed to my nearby Lowe's. Upon arrival I went to customer service and they had to track down someone to bring it up front. In the meantime I went to look at routers since I will need one to install this sink. When I arrived back at customer service router in hand I found 3 boxes sitting on a cart. The young lady helping me, pointed to the items and said there they are. I quickly went over to inspect...

Almost there!

This is where I had completed the floor as of Friday 5/14/2010. I am have completed as much as can be done with the pneumatic nailer and will be finishing by hand nailing. The Advantium also arrived today 5/17/2010 so will be picking that up so can move quickly to installing wall cabinets and installing the Advantium, then begin painting the baseboards and door casings.

If the weather holds up will need to complete the exhaust duct to the outside this week.

A very long Wednesday

Started this morning with Sears arriving for repair to the garage door opener. They had a light schedule so they move my appointment up from 1-5 to 8-12. Bulb socket was replaced so will see how long this one lasts before bulb starts going out...

Contractor came and brazed the lines, charged the system and ran a test so the North Side heat pump is up and running! Whoo Hoo! Now I get to tweak my software to get the most efficiency out of both units. Will use the TED 5000 to determine...

Sump Pump not right...

Posted 05-09-2010 at 10:24 PM by ChrisDIY (Chris the DIY guy vs. "The Ranch")

Well, When asking a completely different question I have found out my sump pump discharge was not done correctly. The house when inspection was done in April '09 had yellow pipes pushed down the 4" pipe leading into the sump well. However that's the way the water comes in. I now have to make a hole in the outside wall to send the water directly to the outside. Can my to do list stop growing...

Archery Anyone!

Completed the picture rail molding as far as I could without the cabinets in place. Will finalize the sanding of the plaster wall repairs. Next step renting the floor nailer and the floor installation. Will most likely install the first few manual rows before the rental so it's more cost effective. I doubt I can finish the entire floor in a day, regardless.

After installing the picture rail I found most of the walls in the kitchen are bowed. Not noticeable until you apply something...
