Archery Anyone!

Posted 05-01-2010 at 11:05 PM by ChrisDIY (Chris the DIY guy vs. "The Ranch")

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...

Productive Day

Posted 04-28-2010 at 09:07 PM by ChrisDIY (Chris the DIY guy vs. "The Ranch")

Had a very productive day. Went on vacation last week and returned to vigorously growing plants of all types! It took me over 4 hours to cut the lawn and also finally cut the branches that overhang and keep my ROPS from clearing. Will need to finish up with string trimmer tomorrow. I will need to figure out how to adjust my mower deck. I need to to raise it up a lot more due to all the irregular surfaces I need to cross and I broke another pin today.

Walls are all closed up and electrical...

Bamboo delay

Posted 04-11-2010 at 10:44 PM by ChrisDIY (Chris the DIY guy vs. "The Ranch")

Went to order the bamboo registers and they will take anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks! I should have order them a while ago, as I am ready to finalize the kitchen wall paint. After I treat my lawn, this Wednesday, I will be closing up the walls and doing joint treatment. I think I am going to try the Durock Tile Membrane for the back-splash.

On another note I will need to paint over 150' of molding in order to finish out the doors and picture rail. Picture rail I can install but the door...

Yet ANOTHER project

Well, according to building code I will have to install an access panel into the small attic space since the height is clearly taller than 30" and greater than 30 sq. ft. ARGH!!!

Something has to be simple at some point!!!

Completed the kitchen and hall bathroom demolition. The ceiling over the shower when I took the drywall off had insulation above it. After finding all the walls to this bathroom insulated although fully interior to condition spaces I thought this was along the same theme. Well low and behold this is actually done correctly the space above this part of the bathroom is an unconditioned space.

The plan is to install 4 recessed wet location lights here. So I have to put the insulation...
