Post a Picture of Your Current Project!


We have a thread for contractors on the main forum, for current projects...it started as a "take a picture Friday of what we are working on" idea, and has grown into a pretty big deal.

Those of you that are involved in a DIY endeavor, please, take a moment to shoot a few pictures and post them with a description of what you are doing. You might be surprised at the feedback you get, and a picture is worth a 1000 words.

I am not a DIY'er obviously, but I will start this thread off with a shot of one of my current projects, where I was yesterday.

Mold found in the wet wall started this unscheduled project. Now we're doing an all-new front bathroom, complete kitchen remodel and re-framing the front of the house, new roofing, complete new plumbing, electrical, and gas lines to top it all off... Basically, after this is done, we'll have an all-new house!!

Bought this house last year after we looked at it 30 years ago and couldn't afford it then. Took the carpeting off the stairs and am in the process of refinishing them. You can see the sanded risers and the stripped skirt boards. Using my Fein sander to sand the tread area my ROS won't reach under the overhang of each tread above it. That amounts to about and inch and going to use the ROS for the parts it can reach. Decided to completely strip the skirt boards because someone had previously painted over some big clumps of.. well I'm not sure what it was. The treads are flat sawed pine (floors in the house are pine but are edge sawed) and thought about covering them with a thin layer of hardwood like cherry or maple but going to see how the pine turns out after refinishing. Considering using a runner just to keep noise down. No sneaking up these stair once the carpet came off.

Here's my current project.

Very small bathroom remodel. I have just enough room for a 5 foot tub, toilet and pedestal sink.

Was an aluminum canopy that failed to support the snow load.
I built it by myself and amazed my kids, as I've been drawing my government pension for over ten years!

That last one is the 3D view I did for the project manager. It turned out just like the specs called out, using Chief Architect

I got tired of my kids going to everybodys house to swim, then con us into a sleep over. So I put all of this in the backyard to keep them home and to keep an eye on them better. I contracted my own pool guy, got my own electrician, did my own plumbing with a friend. Contracted my own concrete guy. Did all of the landscaping brick work, and the stone work myself thur the winter. Built a 20X16 outdoorkitchen/bathhouse/pavillon,with my dad, (thanks Dad) got my family envloved picking up stones and dealing with me thur the winter. So far its paid off my kids are home and I'm still married to the same women!
Plus less grass to mow now.

Before I started...Before I actually moved in.

Post a Picture of Your Current Project!-joists.jpg

Framed and attached the joists over the concrete slab

Post a Picture of Your Current Project!-framed-ready.jpg

Reinforced all the joists, sunk my 4x4's and concreted them in for support.

Post a Picture of Your Current Project!-deckboards.jpg

Here I was laying the deckboards...

Post a Picture of Your Current Project!-finished.jpg

All done, with the exception of one board. I was a bit off, but with everything done after another full day of work, my wife was so nice and bought a furniture set that HAD to be assembled. My work never stops!!!

Tell me what you think.

wow, you guys have some big projects and are doing really nice work. My latest project is for my old house that I am fixing up while the market is bad. This kitchen started as a disaster - acoustic tile cieling with plaster/wood lathe.

When i took the ceiling down there was an inch or two of Coal dust up there! I also refinished the 1920's sink. The job is not quite done yet (I still have the floor to put in) but it is close.

The ceiling I put in uses beaded 3/4 inch plywood in 4x4 sections with routed 1x3's and rosettes. It turned out way better than I expected.

Here's a few pics from a little project I have going....will likely never end. approx 2400 sq ft house, that was built around a trailer....complete with 6-8 ceilings at the exterior walls and a "fire-trap" electrical system. Scope: Added beams to support the raised ceilings. Poured footings to support the newly distributed loads, reframe every wall in the house due to a "hinge" condition at the old ceiling height. Reframed / added peak over front entry. All new interior surfaces Hired out: approx 75-80% of the framing, 80% of the insulation, HVAC ducting (I know a guy), HVAC installation, gas pipe run, granite counter tops, and stucco. DIY:.....everything else (framing, windows, roofing, electrical, structured wiring, plumbing, drywall, tile, flooring, all finish carpentry, and beer drinking.
