Acting as Owner-GC for new house build

06-09-2016 10:55 PM by bmichs75DVM | 4 comments »

Hi all,Just curious about those who have acted as owner-general contractor for a new house build. I know this may not be the best place to post, but thought I would give it a try. I worked general construction for 4 years and have very close friends that are custom home builders/GCs that are willing to guide me. I am a jack of all trades and can tackle pretty much anything other than vehicle mechanics. The build will be about 5 mins from where I work and I can be a little flexible if I have t...

Just the beginning

02-02-2016 03:45 PM by KC_Kid | 55 comments »

A bit of background… We (my wife and I) purchased our first house together in march of 2015 knowing that we would not move in until June. I talked her into a fixer based on the fact that myself and a buddy worked our way through college working for our landlord fixing up his old rentals and also flipping houses for him. So we swooped in and got a fixer out from underneath a local flipper because he was trying to nickel and dime the seller. What made this a good purchase is that the e...

Front Porch Job

01-13-2016 03:13 AM by dustynewt | 26 comments »

I posted this blog on LumberJocks about seven months ago. I had to edit it to restore photos (I have changed my photo host) so while I was at it, I thought I would post it here for my first HomeReburbers blog. The first major problem (project) started when I walked out the front door of my house one day and my foot went right through the slate porch. It shocked me more than anything because I thought the slate was bedded with a solid concrete pad. We have lived here for 25 years. I have al...

Bathroom Remodel #8: A little trim

12-02-2015 06:52 PM by Dan Lyke | 22 comments »

Took me a couple of tries to get a mirror shape I liked: A few things I learned about cutting the oval (which took me 3 tries, although one of those was unrelated to the cutting): Cut from the front, not the back. I was concerned about the mirror coating peeling off when I broke the glass, but it turns out it came off just fine. Alas, it was too thick for my cutter to cut through. Don’t try to clamp it into the frame. Then i built up a frame for the mirror and routed...

Bathroom Remodel #7: They say it's only vanity

12-02-2015 06:37 PM by Dan Lyke | 12 comments »

The face is 2” thick cherry, which will be carved, so I had to modify the clamp for my dovetail jig to hold it in place while I cut the dovetails: And then the top is an inset sink into a block of the same marble we used for the diagonal pattern: Because the inside of vanities can be super nasty, the side is a louvered panel to provide airflow: And the drawer is notched to fit around the drain: The front of the vanity is carved: And then I had to ...

Renovating the Attic in an Old Farm House #4: First Layer of Polystyrene Insulation

09-14-2015 07:45 PM by vulpes | 19 comments »

The plastering I described in my last blog post seems to have had enough time to dry, so I added the first layer of ridged expanded polystyrene insulation. I want to add 4 inches (10 cm) of insulation. But the thickest locally available ridged polystyrene insulation was only 3 inches (8 cm). So I decided to add two layers of 2 inch (5 cm) polystyrene. I used a polystyrene glue and mortar compound (which is much cheaper than construction adhesive), applying it on the wall like tile mortar w...
