Today as I was in the process of staging tools to drop into my crawlspace, I decided to take on a relatively small task of recaulking the tub. We've lived in the house a year, and the caulk job done was bad, but when you have fire hazards, leaky roofs and a 93 year old house sitting on cement blocks instead of a foundation, caulk seems low priority.

I've suspected the house of contributing to minor but frequent colds and coughs, but I've been focussed on bigger things like having ducts...

So as I write this, I have passed my rough inspection and am now waiting for the power company to make the incoming power connections for my upgraded service entrance at its new location. After they had reviewed the new location they indicated 10 business days, which would fall some time this week, unless they had to move it back due to emergency work such as storm damage, which there has been.

Since my last post, I came to the end of my contract period at my previous job, had to do...

First off, I'd like to start by thanking everyone that contributed in answering some of the many questions I've had in various threads I've started in the process of planning and doing this project. Anyone else considering similar work would likely learn a great deal reviewing these discussions:

At this time, the I've been working on this house for 7 months, Work during the first 3 months was done with the greatest intensity. The work since has been while living in the house. I'm not as enthusiastic about work and we had a contractor out to quote the crawlspace beam job.

Really that's not what I'm here to talk about, but since it's part of the weekend I'll touch on that briefly. The estimate we received was that it will cost 10x what materials would cost to do myself. As I...

I don't know that in my case there was much value to my current work in researching the history of my permits, but it was interesting to do this in terms of learning the story of my house. Very interesting actually.

I was actually anticipating, given the quality (lack of) of repairs that I might find that I'm the first person in the history of this house to have pulled a building permit, but there would probably be plumbing and electrical permits. It turns out I was more wrong than...
