Re: Total House Rebuild - Bungalow to Two Storey


How did you acquire the skill set required to do all this?

Thanks.



Tradesmen can usually do anything they put their minds to.
I started fabricating custom sheet metal when I was 17 years old and just kept learning different things over the years....this is the answer I would like to put out there so all my fellow tradesmen love me, ha....however....


YouTube had a lot to do with it. After eight 5 minute YouTube flicks I learned enough to be dangerous with the CAD program and drew the house plans.
Internet searches for a lot of other things. So much info out there.



I bought a copy of the building and electrical codes. Most think the cost is too high for these, but actually in the scheme of things, the cost is peanuts. I even sized my own beam using the code book.


A neighbor of mine used to work for a home builder so I picked his brain a lot.


And forum questions always get answered. People just love to share info. He who doesn't ask, doesn't learn.

You said in an earlier post that you don't do 'relax' well, so if it was for the car, you would probably into another project anyway. Besides, it's been too hot and humid to fish.

Oh yeah, I would be into another project.....the 41 Chrysler New Yorker sitting in the driveway has been calling me for 4 years.


Here's a Photoshop a guy did recently on HR. com.
Second pic is where she actually is. Still need to make a new hood as my first attempt is not looking too good. About five years to go on the hot rod at least.


If only, I could get this %$%^$&*(&* house finished........ ......can you tell it's making a blabbering idiot by now? Just too many projects in a total house build.

Re: Total House Rebuild - Bungalow to Two Storey


A house to finish plus two classics to work on - you are a machine.


I've known a couple of guys who built their own houses and it seems it's hard not to hate the damn thing by the time you're done. I suppose the trouble is the finer and more finickity details are the things you actually see.

Re: Total House Rebuild - Bungalow to Two Storey


Back up water powered sump pump finally hooked up.


No more manually pumping during a power failure which usually hits during severe rainfall of course. Only happened once, but that was enough for me.

Re: Total House Rebuild - Bungalow to Two Storey


I went for a CURSE cruise and grabbed a couple of old boards yesterday. These will be for the raised top. Hopefully, the finish will be similar to the dining table posted a few pages back.

Re: Total House Rebuild - Bungalow to Two Storey


I got the garage set up to do woodworking again.
Then started cutting some boards and got to biscuiting and "Kregging" them together.

Re: Total House Rebuild - Bungalow to Two Storey


I managed to get the whole framework together today. Waiting on the slats that go behind the face.

Re: Total House Rebuild - Bungalow to Two Storey


Those panels look terrific, great job! Say, I was hoping you could share a little more detail on making the panels. I have to to make three small doors for a crawlspace and would like to use your design. I'm interested in how you got the pieces together and if you have to go in a particular order putting it together. I'm really not much of a finish carpenter so this will be a new adventure for me. I mean I have put in doors, windows, walls, cabinets, etc. I just haven't made panel doors and the trim around my windows is pretty plain.

Doors and panels are different.
A router table or table saw should be used to make a frame for a door. Two pieces are grooved and two pieces are tongued.

Frames are done using butt joints and pocket screws. I use a KREG tool to make my pocket holes and Kreg screws for fastening. Google Kreg and there are nice videos showing how to use them.




See attached pics. Doors on one side and face frame back side showing "pockets".

Re: Total House Rebuild - Bungalow to Two Storey


Nice work on the cabinets! It takes alot of work but knowing the quality and construction of cabinetry goes a long way. For the face frames are you using the Kreg face frame system to make the notches?
