    I have always enjoyed watching Home Improvement television shows. I began watching This Old House in 1979 when it first aired and have never missed a single episode. HGTV came along and has added more ways to see what is done. I am very surprised by the widespread acceptance of Barn Doors...
  3. Insulation
    I'm remodeling a 40 year old cabin in East Texas (Zone 8) that previously didn't have any insulation in the walls nor was it conditioned. The exterior is board and baton siding with Roofing felt as a WRB. No external sheathing is present under the WRB. I'm filling the stud bays with Rockwool...

    I'm back again. So, we moved into a house built in about 1905. And the entire house is shiplap, obviously. Now, of course, my husband loves the bare, stained shiplap walls. Problem is, the previous owners painted 'test patches' of ugly brown paint in various shades everywhere. As well as the...
  8. Carpentry
    I am installing a shiplap ceiling in our kitchen. The shiplap is 10" wide, and we're going to fasten it directly to the floor joists. Does anyone have any advice on what to use for nails? Ideally, we'd love to have them not show. Thanks!
