Moving Dirt!

Posted 08-19-2010 at 10:49 PM by cebeling

Hi All,

As suspected I had a brief lull on my posts. I've made some progress and we have recently made big strides.

Over the past week and a half I pulled all of the kitchen cabinet doors and drawer fronts from the house. (54!) I spent most of the weekend getting things prepped for paint and primed 1 side of everything Tuesday night. I'm using a Pittsburg Paint acrylic primer, and seem to have good results so far.

House Move

Hi All,

I've been on again, off again on this site for the past few years as I've had projects and I'm so happy with the help I've had. We're going into the mother of all DIY projects in the coming weeks so I thought I'd start a blog to share with the members of the site....and probably ask a few questions along the way.

My wife and I live in the wonderful city of Fargo, ND. (don't laugh, it's not like the movie...that much) We have 3 small children, 4, 3,...

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.
