First house remodel


My wife and I bought our first house and started our remodel project. What started out as "Let's tear carpet out for laminate flooring, then paint, and we have to do a little something to the bathroom.." turned into 4 windows, insulation throughout, complete bathroom demo, and then last minute my wife wanted a shadow wall for the flat screen...

We got the keys 7/31/10, and we've been at it ever since, in fact the first piece of the bathroom went outside that first night! haha

Enjoy!

First house remodel


dresser and toilet went in yesterday. It turned out quite nice i think. The dresser was glazed and I screwed it to the wall with four 3" screws. I only missed a stud 3 times as the studs aren't all exactly 16" on center..

First house remodel


Thanks! It served as a dresser in a previous life.. We sanded it down and re-stained it, and then glazed the top. We were thinking about doing a countertop, but I'm glad we re-finished what was already there! Finishing the window trim tonight, and maybe throwing the door in. I have to get some wider boards for the window as the ones I got are a half inch too narrow! lol oh well, live and learn i guess!

All I got to say is when you do it yourself and know what you are doing some what the smiles and gratification of a nice completed job is priceless

and a little more progress. Leveled the floor, started crown molding, and started the laminate flooring install. Setup a router jig, and routed some baseboard and crown molding.
