Gulf Island Building.


I haven't finished this floor yet, but it's close. This is the bit from the master bedroom over to the far wall.

I cut a temporary piece of 1 x 4 to fit where the wall will be going...that is as far as this laminate flooring will be laid.

As you can see we have sunshine here (at least right now) certainly not in the forecast...but we'll take it.

Absolutely beautiful! I hope you charge the home owner more for that kind of work!

The only awkward bit left over was the doorway to the master bedroom.

It came out really quite well...

Hi Gang:

As we are rapidly closing in on Christmas, I thought it might be a nice gesture if I gave a special "Thankyou" to everyone who has been kind enough to post on my thread.

It has been running now since January 2, 2009, and other than a few hiccups here and there has been steadily growing almost every day.

I tried to think of a way that I could thank each and every one of you who has joined in at one time or another, and it took me awhile to come up with a way to put everybody in order - while at the same time not offending anyone. So I have decided that I will thank you all in the order in which you originally posted.

I might need to do this in a few separate posts - so here goes!

pokerdonkey was the first up on January 3, 2009. Followed by bondo later that same day.

retro chimed in on January 6th, as did wrangler - who joined me often in the early days.

ponch 37300 came on board on January 7th, iMisspell followed on the 8th and scoggy posted for the first time on the thread January 14th.

Shamus was there on January 16, 2009, drtbk4ever on January 25th, and gma2rjc started on January 27, '09.

jackie treehorn was there on January 28th, Simply Sal on January 29th, shannahan on February 1st, mark 942 on February 2nd and Rippy Skippy on February 9th.

oregon diy posted on February 10th, followed by shtoink on February 12th, and my pal shumakerscott made his first comment on February 17th, 2009. Mort came in later that same day - the 17th, DIY testdummy on the 25th, Knucklez on May 2, and LeviDIY on the 3rd of May.

flamtap started 10 days later on May 13th, followed closely by GBR in WA on the 14th. ryanh arrived on May 15th.

To be continued...

...back again...

There is kind of a long gap between the last member and the next to join, as life interrupted the family in a big way, however, on January 20, 2010 Itsdadf came aboard, as did llckll later the same day.

Everybody's favourite comedian jlhaslip began on January 22nd, Han 'D' on the 24th, and February 1st saw brons2 join us. kaesinee was here on March 1st, and potts 17 on March 3rd.

sbmfj (James) came in on March 4th, and he needs a special thankyou for not only adding to the thread, but for being kind enough to give me a DVD which my wife and I enjoyed immensely.

Lali was on March 6th, ness on March 7th, just a guy on April 13th and loasis on April 18th, which was the same day that tpolk (Timothy) joined us.

Bwana K was April 23, 2010, followed by waterman 1971 on May 2nd, tigerbalm 2424 on May 20th and PatHIverson on on May 23rd.

downrightart posted on May 26th, and one of the all time great tilesetters, Bud Cline, joined on May 31st and has been an immense help ever since.

On June 9th scarrylarry of chainsaw fame joined in, Ivy on the 13th of June - then gdoucette on June 28th. Marbledust was here on June 29th, and everybody's favourite redneck jiju 1943 (Jim) joined on July 15th and the thread hasn't been the same since!

...to be continued...

If I have missed your name please accept my apologies - I have tried to locate everyone.

There is yet one more person who has never posted on my thread but who deserves a very special Thank You and that is Nathan. If you don't know who Nathan is take a look around until you find him. He's the guy who makes all this possible for us.

So from me and my wife and our pooch "Bridie" we would like to extend the best of the season to everyone and wish you all
a very Merry Xmas

Bud...believe me when I tell you it was a labour of love. If it wasn't for the good folks like you out there, the thread would have died a long time ago.

Hi Marc...no snow here yet, and it looks like we may not have any more until after Christmas!
