New person with enough knowledge to hurt themself


I'm not a contractor, just someone who enjoys doing most of their own work.

i'm not ignoring anyone, seems as though most questions I had were already asked and answered.

Was able to complete my trim paint project that mimicked stain. Not bad for a computer nerd...

brown base with some black mixed with glaze.

picture soon...

I am kinda partial to the light green, pencil lines are difficult to see on the blue.

I have a laundry list of projects... house was built in 1958.

Last winter I had my whole attic vacuumed out after a re-roof. Rewired electrical, including new 200amp service, along with some technology (alarm, video surveillance, whole-music, smoke detectors). Did the whole can light thing (LED) and sealed with fire proof foam.

I'm still re-working some HVAC issues. Added some dampeners to even out air low. Wrapped the drain lines to prevent condensation. I added a return inside master closet (14x7), it's attached master bath (14x10) through an archway. There's a sliding window above tube that should draw in cool/fresh air from outside once main door is closed. Toilet has it's own door, small window and vent fan. Am I nut's...?

obsolete mechanicals...

Cloth wrapped electrical & galvanized plumbing.

Had it repiped. Plumbings the few things I have not done myself. I did however install my own tankless water heater. Descaled not long ago too...

My plumbers a friend, I brought his plumbing business into the 21st century. First had him set up with Quickbooks, soon I'll move over to Timberline (Pervasive database for you geeks).
