Another new guy... in Utah...

My name is Greg… I live in Sandy, Utah (20 miles south of downtown Salt lake City. I own a 1975 split-level house that I bought in 1996. Over the years I’ve done many-a-project, some of which have gone well and I’m proud of, others not so well… I enjoy remodeling and home projects in kind of a ‘Love-Hate’ kind of way… here’s a quick list of some of my projects:

1. Tearout old downstairs bathroom, install new shower insert, toilet sink, tile…
2. Tearout old deck, install new 6 x 10 deck (raised 5’ above ground), used ‘Weatherbest’ decking, redwood rail, treat lumber framing.
3. Tearout old kitched, replace subfloor, paint etc.
4. Texture, paint several rooms…
5. Base and case everywhere,
6. new doors
7. Fan lights
8. Re-roof
9. Wire garage with lights, security lights outside, etc.
10. shelving…
And my most recent project:
Full exterior remodel… I tore off the old siding, I saw the poor shape that my T1-11 was in (holes, rotten… etc) and I noticed that the insulation was non-existent in some areas and in others just not very good… so I decided that since I am planning on staying in the house for along time, that I would do it right… so I tore off the T1-11, removed all of the insulation, then had Cellulose wet-spayed in everywhere (including cantilevered areas and floor access areas…) then I put up all new OSB sheathing. This was all just this last few days…

When I’m not at work, or doing home projects, I’m either at a soccer game watching either of my two boys (ages 9 and 13) play competitive soccer… or I’m riding my dirt bike some where in the desert or mountains…

So anyway… there’s a summary… I look forward to using this site more often…

Nice to meet you. Welcome

I spent about a year living close to Salt Lake and really like the country in Utah.
