Speaker Wall Plates

Posted 12-05-2015 at 11:15 PM by ddawg16

On our cold mornings, I've found that it's more enjoyable to do some minor tasks in the house while I'm still in PJ's and drinking coffee.

This morning I got 2 of the surround sound speakers installed in the master bedroom.

I pre-wired all the speaker locations before I drywall'd (and took pics so I knew where the wires were)

I've found it's easier and less messy to cut the holes with a box cutter. Takes a little longer but the hole looks a lot better...

Reusing Oak Flooring

Posted 11-08-2015 at 09:43 PM by ddawg16

Fast forward....had to rebuild the bathroom floor which is adjacent the master bedroom. I ripped out all the oak flooring in the hallway and master...

The Master

Posted 09-15-2015 at 04:48 PM by Jagger

I had always hoped that when when I was ready to buy an older trailer, it would have a master suite. That was a major selling point when I went and looked at this one. Huge garden tub, stand alone shower, wide vanity area, AND even a makeup vanity. Problem was, *none* of it was in usable shape and some of it wasn’t even close to being salvageable.

The shower pan was ruined and I could clearly see the order of events that led to the death of the pan. I have no pics, but I can pretty...

The Beginning

Posted 09-14-2015 at 05:56 PM by Jagger

These pics are pretty much of the main area, which is what I attacked first.

I've always wanted to take an old home and make it new again, but I'll admit, I was WAY overwhelmed once I finally got the chance. But that in no way slowed me down. Once the trailer was moved to my land, I was afraid I'd get DIY-block (like writer's block, but a tad different ). I was wrong. Even though there were a million different ideas running through my head, I pulled out an old portfolio and...
