A very long Wednesday

Posted 05-12-2010 at 10:15 PM by ChrisDIY (Chris the DIY guy vs. "The Ranch")

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...

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...
