Complete 1970s House Renovation! (3 year project 2009-2012)


I hope it's alright to post links to my renovation blog on the site. I've been asking lots of questions - and hopefully answering a few here and there as well.

This will be our (my wife and I) 5th house, but definitely the most extensive renovations. I've previously done bathrooms, basements, kitchen, etc. but this is the first time we're putting it all together in one house.

anyways ... we're just getting started ... so feel free to post comments back in the thread ... or the blog.

Moderators - if posting links isnt' allowed ... let me know and I'll figure out something / someway of copying, pasting, and re-uploading the pictures.


Intro
Day 1 - Basement Under the Stairs
Day 1 - Basement "Great" Room
Day 2 - Basement Landing
Day 3 - Basement TV Room
Day 4&5 - Basement TV Room cont'd

Complete 1970s House Renovation! (3 year project 2009-2012)


Please tell me the flowered wallpaper will stay !!!
I like built-ins, but that looked like a weird place for one
So far I have been able to avoid a dumpster, permit (free) for the dump for roof shingles was all I have needed so far
We had a yearly "allowance" of $50 for dumping - my PU is charged $42 for a full load
Now its down to only $25 a year but I'm mostly done

I had a 5 year plan - started in '04
But '06 I broke a rib & my son was born - nothing accomplished
And in early '08 I twisted my knee real bad
So I'm actually still sort of within my working time frame

Plenty of people on here for assistance if needed (question-wise)

hahah ... no more floral wallpaper unfortunately ... or is that fortunately?

wow ... sounds like you've got yourself a great deal on dumping ... not like that here in Ontario ... 'dumpters' run about $300 for a week + $100/tonne of waste ... it's going to get expensive carting this stuff away.
